Child Vaccine Injury and Death: US Supreme Court Hears Argument Today – Will Immunity Be Erased, Allowing Parent Plaintiffs to Sue?


Child Vaccine Injury and Death: US Supreme Court Hears Argument Today – Will Immunity Be Erased, Allowing Parent Plaintiffs to Sue?

Today, the United States Supreme Court is hearing oral arguments from both sides in the product liability lawsuit filed by parents Russell and Robie Bruesewitz, where they have sued Wyeth Laboratories for damages sustained by their infant daughter which they assert were the result of a Wyeth DPT (diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus) vaccine.

Specifically, the parents are claiming that the vaccine has caused permanent injuries suffered by their daughter, Hannah, now 18 years old, which include convulsions and permanent brain injury (brain damage). In their suit, they are seeking monetary justice for Hannah – who must have around-the-clock care, and who cannot speak, because of the vaccine’s damage.

If the parents win their case before the U.S. Supreme Court , then parents across the country will see a legal block that currently exists for vaccine manufacturers, an immunity or legal shield from being sued, erased by the High Court.

Result? All over the nation, parents and guardians of those who have been seriously injured or killed because of a vaccine will be able to seek justice through lawsuits filed on behalf of their loved ones.
