Families Sue Their Lawyers For Negligence Over MMR Cases

The tables have turned on lawyers.

The Times reported that three families are taking legal action against their former lawyers, claiming that the Measles Mumps and Rubella (MMR) vaccination withdrawn in 1992, caused their children to develop encephalitis and not autism. They are saying that they are suing because they believe that their former lawyers were negligent when they lumped their cases in with more than 1000 other discredited autism and bowel disease claims. The three cases were dropped as part of the class action in 2003 along with all the other cases.

 

Hannah Devlin Science Correspondent for The Times wrote:

Ann Coote, from Bolton, believes that the learning difficulties and epilepsy suffered by her daughter Rachael, 23, are a result of the encephalitis, a swelling of the brain, that she appeared to have had shortly after being vaccinated with MMR.

The claims relate to a strain of mumps, Urabe, that was used in the MMR vaccine between 1988 and 1992.

The second case is that of Katie Stephen, 20, who suffered symptoms of encephalitis and is now partially deaf.

The third family wishes to remain anonymous.

The families are suing the law firm Irwin Mitchell, which merged in 2006 with Alexander Harris. To read the full story go to http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/public/law/ original link but you will need to join to read it. Sadly this story does not appear to be in other newspapers.

 

Urabe is a strain of mumps used as an ingredient in the early MMR vaccines. This was said to cause many children to suffer from encephalitis as a side effect from the vaccine. Urabe was used in the Pluserix and Immravax MMR vaccines which were both withdrawn from use in the UK in 1992.

 

Professional Opinions On The Pluserix and Immravax Vaccines

Dr Wakefield had this to say about the two vaccines withdrawn in Part 6 Government liability’ Question 1: In 6 parts on YouTube:.

http://www.whale.to/a/dr_andrew_wakefield.html

The two of the three vaccine brands that were introduced in 1988 had to be withdrawn for safety reasons and yet Dr Salisbury in his statement to the GMC (General Medical Council) sums up by saying this is a vaccine (MMR) with an exemplary safety record. Well, if that is his idea of an excellent safety record then we have a very different perception he and I of vaccine safety.”

 

Others agree, saying that these vaccines were very far from safe. Dr Viera Scheibner said that in 1995 The ‘Bulletin of Medical Ethics’ published an article about the MMR vaccine and the measles epidemic that never was. She wrote:

The nine-page article in the August 1995 issue of BME stated among other things that on 14 September 1992 the Department of Health (DOH) hastily withdrew two brands of MMR vaccines following a leak to the national press about the risk of children developing mumps meningitis after administration of these vaccines. Both brands contained the Urabe mumps vaccine strain which had been shown to cause mumps meningitis in one in 1,044 vaccinees (Yawata,1994″)

 

See ‘Shaken Baby Syndrome The Vaccination Link’ Dr Viera Scheibner Taken from Nexus August-September 1998 http://www.whale.to/vaccines/sbs.htm l

 

So had that leak not occurred, then we have to wonder if these vaccines would still be used today. Most probably, as the UK government like nothing more than cutting corners and making as many financial cuts as they possibly can, even if those cuts could potentially put children’s lives at risk.

 

I say this because it has reported that the Urabe containing vaccines were a quarter of the price of the Merck MMR11.

 

Merck even admit themselves that vaccines can and do cause encephalitis in some children.

 

Merck states in their manual – Encephalitis: An acute inflammatory disease of the brain due to direct viral invasion or to hypersensitivity initiated by a virus or other foreign protein……Secondary encephalitis, usually a complication of viral infection, is considered to have an immunologic mechanism. Examples are encephalitides secondary to measles, chickenpox, rubella, smallpox vaccination, vaccinia, and many other less well defined viral infections. (Merck manual) http://www.merck.com/pubs/mmanual/section14/chapter176/176c.htm

 

Dr Buttram Has Written That MMR Vaccines Can Cause Encephalitis

Dr Harold Buttram wrote this in the opening lines of his article ‘Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) Vaccine as a Potential Cause of Encephalitis (Brain Inflammation) in Children’ http://www.whale.to/v/buttram.html

Childhood autism is the result of encephalitis affecting primarily the limbic system of the brain, located below the cerebral cortex. A relatively few number of cases are due to genetic causes, but officially the great majority are of unknown causes

If this is the case then were the lawyers right to lump all the cases together? We shall see but it is in my opinion that if the parents were only stating that their children developed encephalitis leading to epilepsy/deafness and not autism, then yes they are right to sue. Lawyers should not lump cases together in this way simply out of convenience and cost cutting. It is clear from the Times article that these cases did not involve autism and therefore should have been separated from the class action. After all there is plenty of evidence to suggest that that their children’s encephalitis could have been caused as a result of being given the now banned vaccine.

    It was obvious from the start of the Omnibus case that the lawyers had no clue what they were doing.  There were much better witnesses available who they didn’t use.  Clearly legal malpractice.

    Sadly, as Christina points out, there is much more in the way of ‘legal shenanigans’ going on everywhere, in my opinion: with MDs, Big Pharma and its ‘supposed testing’, the ‘unholy health trinity: HHS, CDC, and FDA’, and, of course, at the U.S. Vaccine Court with its masters, and with the legal profession.  Old-time law would have called that ‘collusion’. 

    Why the U.S. Congress has become a party to these healthcare and vaccine-related atrocities boggles the mind.  Congress needs to get on the stick, investigate the neurotoxins and other poisons, foreign and 3rd generation GMO DNA, plus aborted human fetus DNA that no one is willing to investigate or address with regard to homologous recombination.  Where’s the science on that, I ask.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Their cases were a total mess thank to their lawyers. It is about time the families of these children and many others got justice.

    Rosemary Fox tried to get justice for thousands of families in the UK damaged by the whooping cough vaccine, back in the 70’s. These children also suffered encephalitis after their vaccines, some with horrific consequences.

    Rosemary was battled against by the UK government for years and made out to be mad. She fought and fought to get compensation for these families. Eventually she took their cases to the European Court of Human Rights and won. Her families were each awarded £10,000 which was a lot of money back then.

    What this world needs are more Rosemary Fox;s,

    The lawyers knew they were wrong in the three cases in my article and I hope these families get justice.

    Thank You! And Loving Blessings to All You who contribute to making the facts re. vaccines known.  Special thanks to Dr.Andrew Wakefield for refusing to be silenced.
    We need to request full disclosure of vaccines’ content when vaccines are offered and/or “pushed” upon the public by the medical profession and government health departments who use fear and false promise of health gain via media and other advertising ongoing campaigns.
    Why are those who inject vaccines NOT SUED?  Toxic and sometime deadly vaccines are injected by the hands of doctors and nurses.
    WHERE ARE the PORTIAs of out times?…..(heroine in Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice”, who acts as a lawyer. 
    Please read the biography: -www.Sarah’sLastWish by Eve Hillary to learn what damage, what unspeakable suffering was inflicted upon 11 years young Sarah by Med.Specialists in a children’s hospital in Sydney Australia, with the “help” of DOCS who under false pretenses managed to convince the Judge to take Sarah away from her caring loving family in order to please the “medical Professor’, and Court Judges who allowed her to be tortured till she died at 13yrs of age, (in spite of the desperate parents repeated protest)  even though it was medically established from the beginning that her condition was rare and untreatable in Australia….so why allow her to be literally tortured by the Professor who was ‘hell bent’ to use her as an experiment?
    BARRISTERS worthy of their profession would ‘make capital’ of this miscarriage of justice when representing families re. the DAMAGE or death caused by the injection of toxic VACCINES, BY POINTING OUT THE CREDULOUS, GULLIBLE, BLIND FAITH IN THE MEDICAL PROFESSION
    IN SOME COURTS AND GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS like DOCS.
    May we, parents and carers of the future generation WHO HAVE NO SAY RE.VACCINATION,
    learn to practice the virtue of asking questions before complying with the wishes of those who are in any authority.
    May we learn to ask the Holy Spirit and the Holy Guardian Angels of our “invisible spiritual world”…………to COME to help and inspire, to guide and protect us while we endeavour to stop the injection of toxic vaccines in our children.
    Please accept my Loving Blessings, all You People of good will, and to all your dear ones…here…there…and anywhere…right back from the beginning of time on this planet.

    Mama Luciana.
