It seems this historic court case went down without much fan fair by ‘big media’. Big pharma’s Merck’s response is typical lawyer speak…
“We’re being held liable in a vaccine claim BUT, the courts made it clear vaccines did NOT harm this child!”
The answer to this madness isn’t winning court cases but stopping these tragedies in their tracks BEFORE they can do any harm.
I did not even hear about this until today. I suppose the media has been too busy spending the time paid in billions by big phrma and big government to remind us for the 10 millionth time to get (OUR?) flu shots.
Family to Receive $1.5M+ in First-Ever Vaccine-Autism Court Award
Posted by Sharyl Attkisson | CBS News
The first court award in a vaccine-autism claim is a big one. CBS News has learned the family of Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million dollars for her life care; lost earnings; and pain and suffering for the first year alone.
In addition to the first year, the family will receive more than $500,000 per year to pay for Hannah’s care. Those familiar with the case believe the compensation could easily amount to $20 million over the child’s lifetime.
Hannah was described as normal, happy and precocious in her first 18 months.
Then, in July 2000, she was vaccinated against nine diseases in one doctor’s visit: measles, mumps, rubella, polio, varicella, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, and Haemophilus influenzae.
