Vaccine Injuries

Kennedy Berkley represents people of all ages who have been injured due to childhood immunizations, flu shots and other vaccinations. Although they are an integral part of modern health care, some people unfortunately have an adverse reaction to vaccines and can suffer devastating injuries or even die as a result. Some of these injuries can be life-changing, impacting a victim’s ability to work and participate in other activities of life and family.

  • Flu shots
  • Tetanus
  • Pertussis

Cases of vaccine injury in the Court of Federal Claims are subject to unique and special rules of procedure and evidence, different than other types of personal injury claims. In addition, there are also special time limitations that apply to these cases. Accordingly, it is important to act promptly and have legal counsel who is knowledgeable and experienced in handling these types of specialized cases.
