The Court of Federal Claims is a special court located in Washington, D.C. that is dedicated to hearing claims for vaccine injuries. Federally admitted attorneys, such as Phyllis Widman, Esq. and her team, bring claims for vaccine injuries occurring in all 50 states and D.C., including Oregon. The Court is highly specialized and having an experienced vaccine injury attorney is helpful.

The Court of Federal Claims, commonly referred to as the “Vaccine Court,” has always operated either remotely or as a “traveling” Court. Meaning that if a person is too injured or unable to get to the Court in Washington, DC, the Special Master and DOJ attorney will come to the Petitioner’s local federal Court for a hearing, or the matter would simply be heard via video,

The Vaccine Court has quite a few differences from civil court. First, the adversary in these matters is always the Department Of Health and Human Services (HHS), rather than the administrator or manufacturer of the vaccine, since the aforementioned are initially immune from liability. Second, the filing is referred to as a “petition” rather than a complaint and its content and formatting is different from a civil court complaint. Third, the trials are bench trials only (no jury trials) and are conducted by “Special Masters” rather than judges. Attorneys fees are reimbursed by the Vaccine Court, therefore you never pay attorneys fees.

Widman Law Firm has experience representing the victims of a wide-range of vaccine injuries. Some common vaccine injuries include SIRVA, GBS, and CIDP. SIRVA, is an acronym for “shoulder injury resulting from vaccine administration.” This term describes various types of reactions that can happen when a vaccine is administered too high in the shoulder. This improper administration can result in pain and injury to the shoulder and upper arm, hand, fingers, neck, and other parts of the body. In severe cases, this can cause the individual to completely lose range of motion in their shoulder. These injuries are often associated with a diagnosis of bursitis, tendonitis, and frozen shoulder. Shoulder injuries are the most common vaccine injury filed in the Vaccine Court, along with Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (CIDP) and Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS). Vaccines have been implicated in both the development of GBS and CIDP in patients with no history of the diseases and an exacerbation of symptoms in patients with a prior history of GBS or CIDP.

"Phyllis Widman, and staff, after years of continuous working on my behalf, keeping in touch with me every step of the way, for years, was happy to inform me that we had won the case.

"I hired Phyllis Widman to assist me with the denial of my religious exemption for the COVID vaccine and employment termination by my employer. Phyllis was extremely knowledgeable and clearly explained to me about my legal rights and the legal process. I found her to be very efficient, organized, and passionate about her work and I especially liked that she really cared about me as a person and truly wanted what was best for me. I am very grateful to say, I did have a successful outcome. The religious exemption denial was overturned and I am back to work. I highly recommend Phyllis Widman." Kimberly R.
"Phyllis and her team took care of everything after my injury. When I was hurt, I was unsure who to speak to, as I'm quite young and typically "let things go." After a few recommendations and the first phone call I knew I was in good hands. I don't know where I'd be right now if I didn't make that simple first phone call. A thank you just isn't enough, but thank you so so much for what your firm does." Anonymous
"My experience with Phyllis Widman was excellent. I know that I would not have had the successful outcome that I did without the expertise and specialty training of Phyllis Widman. Phyllis worked tirelessly to make sure that my concerns were addressed, and my needs were met. Phyllis is extremely personable, friendly, comforting and very relatable. She is so well versed in the field of vaccine injury law. I am extremely fortunate to have found Phyllis for my case and would highly recommend her to anyone in search of a truly compassionate professional." Kristen M.
