U.S. Federal Court Acknowleges Vaccines Cause Brain Injuries

This December 2012 US Federal Court decision may be the first of it's kid to recognize that vaccines (the MMR in this case) directly causes brain injury, setting the precedent for future lawsuits, payments, etc. It's a major milestone to have a court acknowledge the fact that there are vaccines that do cause brain injuries.  The Petitioners alleged that as a result of “all the vaccinations administered to their son from March 25, 2003, through February 22, 2005, and more specifically, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccinations administered to him on December 19, 2003 and May 10, 2004,” their son suffered “a severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder (‘ASD’).” Damages awarded were just under $1 Million. Not a lot of a lifetime of care, but a major victory none-the-less.
