The Costs of Vaccine Damage: The Payout Figures

by Catherine J. Frompovich

Vaccines are supposed to be safe according to the U.S. CDC/FDA, so how come the HRSA division of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services published Statistics Reports [1] for the period ending September 3, 2013 providing data verifying that vaccines cause damage and even kill?

The period covers fiscal years (FY) 1989 to FY 2013. There were 3,387 compensable claims—meaning those claims that received compensation or money, and 9,651 claims that were dismissed, an awful miscarriage of the original intent of the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program created by Congress and Public Law 99-660, in this writer’s opinion.

The U.S. Court of Federal Claims (aka the vaccine court) paid out $2,569,336,538.59 for compensable claims and $104,202,681.85 for attorneys’ fees representing those claims. The court paid another round of attorneys’ fees for dismissed claims totaling $56,375,431.34, plus $15,190,454.29 for interim attorneys’ fees. Judging by attorneys’ fees paid out, it looks like attorneys do pretty well, instead of injured claimants, i.e., those the court decides to dismiss.
