About David Carney

David J. Carney joined Anapol Weiss in 2010 as an associate in the firm’s Toxic Tort and Medical Malpractice Departments. In that time, he has zealously and successfully advocated for the rights of injured victims in a variety of complex matters, including products liability, medical malpractice, benzene exposure, toxic torts, asbestos exposure, premises liability, motor vehicle accidents, dram shop, vaccine injury compensation, mass torts and class actions.

David was selected for inclusion in the 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 New Jersey and Pennsylvania editions of Super Lawyers® Rising Stars, a distinction given to only 2.5% of lawyers who are either under 40 years old or in practice for less than 10 years.

David was also named as a member of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40 in Pennsylvania. This professional organization is composed of the top trial lawyers under the age of 40 who exemplify superior qualifications, leadership and trial results in their specific state or region.

David also spends a significant amount of his time representing victims that have suffered adverse events from the administration of a vaccine in the United States Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C.

David routinely handles vaccine cases involving the Gardasil, Influenza, Varicella, DTaP, Hepatitis A and B, and MMR vaccines that have been linked to a variety of autoimmune diseases such as Guillain-Barré Syndrome (GBS), chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP), lupus, brachial neuritis, shoulder injuries, transverse myelitis, encephalopathy, orthopedic shoulder injuries and others.  Through his efforts in the Vaccine Courts, David has successfully obtained many multi-million dollar and six-figure settlements for his clients.
