vaccine compensation info

To everyone,

Please see my post regarding getting GBS, etc added to the list of tabled illness regarding the Vaccine Compensation Fund for more information.

Just a comment about documentation: You do not need a doctor to write a letter stating that your disorder was caused by a vaccine. The vaccine court bases the claim on a time frame for when any symptoms started from the date the vaccine was received. Not the diagnosis but the start of the symptoms. In most cases it is 6-8 weeks but it depends on the disorder. It is easy to fill out a HIPPA form and have records sent to you. You may have to pay a copying fee, which can be substantial if the record is extensive. If you fill out a form for the attorney to get the records, there is no cost to you and the attorney can send the records to you on a cd.

It is free to consult an attorney and you will not have to pay any attorney costs, ever. If you do then find another attorney. There are credible firms on the internet.

Your best weapon is complete medical records and a written account by anyone involved detailing what they remember, have seen, etc. regarding the person who fell ill. If the patient can write, they should write an account as well.

Again, please see my post. If we don’t get these diseases added to the list of tabled illnesses, we have no chance of ever getting compensation. We need to educate the government and medical community about the prevalence of vaccine related neurological disorder and demand to be compensated. If the federal government has chosen to give drug companies immunity from lawsuit, then the federal government has a right to compensate those who have had their lives destroyed.
