*UPDATE* The lawsuit settlement was rendered in July of 2011. However, as you can see from the first link, an article was written or updated by a partner of the firm that tried the case making it seem that the verdict was a new one. Currently it is unknown as to the purpose of the reposted or updated article. Nevertheless, this does not change the sprit of the story, however the opening sentence is not accurate.
Today, Tuesday October 6th, the US Federal vaccine court awarded a staggering 61 million dollars to a family after their baby was severely injured after receiving the DTaP vaccine. The court documents show that hours after the baby received the vaccination in 2007 she started to have seizures, abnormal breathing, irregular heartbeats, and at 6:05am the next morning, her heart stopped completely. At which point she needed 6 minutes of CPR to be revived. Sadly, she has been on life supporting machines ever since.
The family’s lawyer Anne Carrión Toale, stated that the 61 million dollars will go towards paying for around the clock care that S.M. (the initials of the injured child) will need because of being severely injured by the vaccine.
This is an incredibly heartbreaking situation that happens much more than the Pharmaceutical Industry would like us all to believe. In fact, in 2013 alone, the court paid out around 375 million in vaccine injury lawsuits and over 3 billion since its inception in 1986! These stats are gaudy and illustrate just how unsafe vaccines are. However, none of the 3 billion dollars awarded by this court has come from the pharmaceutical companies themselves. The National Childhood Vaccines Injury Act of 1986, created a separate court system to hear these cases– and also created a vaccine tax for the expressed purpose of paying off any money awarded via any lawsuit for children injured by vaccine. That’s right, the industry has ZERO liability and the lawsuit money solely comes from taxing people who get a vaccine. So, if you or your child become injured by any vaccine you are technically helping payout your claim!
A lawsuit this big may be what is needed to start waking people up to how extremely dangerous these vaccines are and how the government has protected the vaccine manufactures from being sued when their product injures or even kills people.
