Firm Secures Largest Ever Vaccine Verdict for Man’s Partial Paralysis from Daughter’s Polio Vaccine
Jury Verdict: $22.5 Million
A former Wall Street executive who contracted polio from changing his infant daughter's diaper after she had been given an oral polio vaccine was awarded $22.5 million in a lawsuit against the vaccine's producer. The plaintiff became paralyzed, spent months on a hospital ventilator in intensive care, lost his job due to a lack of wheelchair access and suffers partial paralysis, 30 years after contracting the disease. The New York jury found the vaccine company responsible for his injuries for having manufactured an unreasonably dangerous product, and that the company failed to warn doctors about risks associated with the vaccine's use.
