Paul Brazil Wins $150,000 for Child’s Chickenpox Vaccine Injury

Attorney Paul Brazil recently won $150,000 for a child who developed severe allergies after receiving the chickenpox vaccine. This compensation covered pain and suffering, medical costs, and future expenses for Epipen prescriptions. If you or a loved one has experienced adverse reactions to a vaccine, My Vaccine Lawyer can help. Protect your rights and get the compensation you deserve with our experienced team.

The child seemed to have recovered from the anaphylactic reaction.  However, upon undergoing allergy testing it was revealed he had developed an allergy to beef and gelatin, two ingredients contained in the chickenpox vaccine.  Following the vaccine, if the child ingested any food that had merely touched beef, he would suffer an allergic reaction.

Attorney Paul Brazil filed a petition in the Court of Federal Claims seeking compensation from the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program.  After nine months of litigation, the Department of Health and Human Services conceded that Mr. Brazil had proven entitlement.  The compensation package included:

  • $134,539.80 for pain and suffering
  • $3,273.36 for reimbursement of past medical costs
  • $12,275.76 in projected future expenses for Epipen prescriptions

If you or a loved one may have suffered an adverse reaction to a vaccination, please contact My Vaccine Lawyer at (800) 229-7704 for a free consultation.  Our vaccine attorneys would be happy to review your potential case and provide comprehensive legal analysis.
