On the heels of a federal appeals court ruling that denied an association between autism and vaccines, the family of nine-year-old Hannah Poling will receive more than $1.5 million to provide for her care for the rest of her life, to compensate for lost earnings, and for pain and suffering for the first year. Hannah developed autism after receiving vaccinations for nine diseases during one visit to her doctor.
Hannahâ€™s family will also receive more than $500,000 per year to cover their daughterâ€™s care. Although this case was settled before trial by the government in 2007, the compensation was not agreed upon until now.
