Meet Our Team: Vaccine Injury Attorney Nancy Meyers
Representing people who have suffered vaccine injuries is more than a job for Nancy Meyers. She views her work as a calling, utilizing special training and a unique skill set to make a lasting impact on people’s lives. Nancy’s background in medicine provides the perspective needed to support families suffering through unanticipated health issues. With years of experience, she has secured millions of dollars in compensation for victims of vaccine injury.
When studying biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Nancy never imagined that her career would be so rewarding. After receiving her degree, she went on to attain a J.D. from the University of Louisville School of Law in 1995.
“I had considered going on to medical school, but something about the legal field intrigued me,” she said. “I realized that a law degree might allow me to help people with health issues as much as a medical degree would — just in a different way.”
Finding Her Path
Nancy began practicing law in North Carolina in 1996, focusing on medical malpractice cases, as well as personal injury and wrongful death. She was later admitted to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, making her qualified to represent people who have been injured by vaccines.
“When I learned about the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, I knew I wanted to help people in this way,” Nancy explained. “This compensation program allows people to avoid the lengthy litigation process, receiving the compensation they deserve promptly.”
While vaccines are completely safe and recommended for the majority of the population, rare and serious reactions do occur. Even though Ward Black Law is in Greensboro, Nancy is able to help people across the United States apply for benefits from the Compensation program.
“It’s important for me to remind people that — going through this program — you are not suing anyone,” she said. “You are simply applying for benefits from a government program designed to compensate those who are injured.”
Outside the Courtroom
Helping others is a common theme in Nancy’s family. Her husband is a family doctor with Eagle Physicians of Oak Ridge, NC. Together, they have a teenage son who enjoys lacrosse and plays on several teams. The family is active in their church, Oak Ridge United Methodist, where they are involved with missions on a local and global scale.
“What motivates me in work and in life is the ability to see one life changed through the passion of someone else,” Nancy said. “God has gifted us all uniquely; whether recovering benefits for vaccine injury clients or serving on the mission field — our work makes a difference.”
