About Conway Homer, P.C.
For over 28 years, we have represented thousands of people from all 50 states in the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (“NVICP”). Our practice is, and always has been, focused exclusively on vaccine law. We are the most experienced “vaccine injury” law firm in the country.
Over the years, we have adopted a team approach to our cases. This team approach has helped us achieve the highest possible awards for our clients. Each client has the benefit and full support of our entire team of attorneys, paralegals, expert physicians, and life care planners. This approach has resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars in awards to our clients. While many cases in the NVICP result in financial settlements without the need for a trial, our firm also has extensive trial experience.
Our successful advocacy has resulted in landmark cases that have shaped the Vaccine Program and made it friendlier and more generous to those individuals who suffer from vaccine injuries. Some notable examples include Althen v. Sec’y of HHS, 418 F. 3d 1274 (“close calls concerning vaccine causation should be resolved in favor of injured claimants”); Capizzano v. Sec’y. 440 F. 3d 1317 (the opinions of treating physicians can be considered in establishing a petitioner’s vaccine injury); Zatuchni v. Sec’y of HHS, 516 F. 3d 1312 (vaccine injured persons who die as a result of their vaccine injury can receive compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings, and pain and suffering, in addition to the statutory death benefit); and Shaw v. Sec’y of HHS, 609 F. 3d 1372 (payment of interim attorneys’ fees are important so that cases can be timely processed). The Althen case further defined the burden of proof for vaccine injured individuals and remains one of the most important cases to be decided in the Vaccine Program. The awards in these four cases alone exceeded $3,500,000.00.
Because of our firm’s experience, we have also taken the lead in litigating large “groupings” of cases with similar injuries. For example, our trial team served as lead counsel in the Rubella Omnibus Proceedings I and II, the Autism Omnibus Proceedings, and the Neurological Demyelinating Omnibus Proceedings. Our expertise resulted in the resolution of over 5,000 cases.
Our firm is also active in our professional community. Our attorneys have been chosen to serve on vaccine-related panels for the American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, the United States Court of Federal Claims, the Office of Special Masters, and the Vaccine Injured Petitioners Bar Association. We have also been chosen to educate the public about the Vaccine Program by film producers, television stations and print publications.
Each client is important to us and receives the full attention of our team. At all times, each client is able to communicate freely with the paralegals and attorneys working on his or her case.
Please be assured that you will be in good hands if you choose us to represent you.
