$40 Million Vaccine Structured Award

 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. The decision awards a life-care plan, which will pay $40 Million to a Brooklyn girl who requires constant medical attention for her developmental disabilities and seizures that resulted from a whole-cell DTP vaccination. Britcher, Leone & Roth, LLC successfully prosecuted this case involving complex medical issues. The plan will provide in excess of $8 million in present value benefits and $40 million in benefits, if the child lives to age 76.

$150,000 DPT Vaccination Settlement

 The U.S. Court of Claims approved this settlement for the estate of an infant who died three hours after the administration of a Diphtheria Pertussis Tetanus Vaccination. The firm obtained this compensation under the Childhood Vaccination Injury Compensation Act, which provides for a maximum of $250,000 in a death case. This settlement was particularly noteworthy because the infant had other significant medical problems, which could have arguably contributed to the cause of death.

$19 Million Vaccine Structured Award

 A Paterson girl suffered retardation, seizures and behavioral disorders from a rubella vaccine. Our firm alleged that the vaccine, which led to her being stricken with encephalopathy, caused her disabilities. The $19 million total payments to be received are based on the girl's life expectancy of age 75.
