May 31, 2015, SharylAttkisson.com: Recent Rise in Vaccine Victims’ Court Decisions and Concessions Not Reflected in Revised Government Chart
In March, the federal government removed the latest vaccine injury court statistics-more than a year’s worth of data-from one of its publicly reported charts. It was an abrupt departure from the normal practice of updating the figures monthly.
Wiping the latest data means the “adjudication” chart on a government website no longer reflects the recent, sharp rise in court victories for plaintiffs who claimed their children were seriously injured or killed by one or more vaccines.
Since January of 2014, twice as many victims have won court decisions than the previous eight years combined. In these court decisions, a judge ruled the evidence showed vaccines “more likely than not” caused the plaintiff’s injuries.
Also on the rise is the number of vaccine injury cases the government has “conceded”: up 55% in a little over one year.
As a result of the recent website changes, neither of these trends is reflected on the current “adjudication” chart.
. . . In the unusual vaccine court, the government acts on behalf of pharmaceutical companies rather than the public, defending vaccine makers against alleged victims. Money damages are not paid by vaccine companies, but through fees collected from patients on every dose of vaccine.
Shouldn’t “informed consent” (Of course you really don’t get to “consent” to forced vaccination, do you?)….include knowing that neither the doctor or the product maker has any liability? Shouldn’t it also include knowing what the possible side effects are, based on the package insert?
