Law Language Key in Vaccine Case Before Supreme Court

By Jack Simony

The meaning of the word "unavoidable" was at the center of recent Supreme Court that in the end barred some, but not all, lawsuits against vaccine manufactures, The New York Times reported.

The court was visiting a 1986 law that Congress used to try to create that would compensate people injured by vaccines while also barring some.

The case was brought by the parents of a girl who received a D.T.P. vaccine as an infant in 1992, and now suffers intense seizures and has developmental problems.
