Lawsuit over Childhood Vaccine Injuries Settled for $8M

Washington, DC: The Department of Health and Human Services has settled a lawsuit brought the parents of a toddler who allegedly sustained injuries as a result of immunizations.

The settlement for $8,713,625, agreed by the parents, included future lost earnings, past and future pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, attendant care, rehabilitation, and residential expenses.

The parents alleged the child began suffering febrile seizures within 24 hours of having the immunizations. Testing showed that the child had suffered an ischemic infarct or a stroke, lack of muscle coordination, loss of hearing and loss of sight. The parents also alleged that the child suffered significant delays, including speech, intellect and fine motor skills development. At the age of 9, the child required a G-tube for nutrition and was not potty trained.
