Court Awards $40 Million in Childhood Vaccine Injury Case

The Parties to a National Vaccine Compensation Claim today agreed not to seek a review and to accept a decision dated March 31, 2000, by Special Master Laura Millman of the United States Court of Federal Claims awarding a life-care plan which will pay $40 Million through age 76 to a Brooklyn girl who requires constant medical attention for her developmental disabilities and seizures that resulted from a whole-cell DTP vaccination. Certified Civil Trial Attorney E. Drew Britcher, a partner in the Glen Rock law firm Britcher Leone, LLC, successfully prosecuted this case involving complex medical issues.
