The US Court of Federal Claims will hear testimony today that a defective product may cause autism. Several thousand parents of autistic children will be presenting their testimony and evidence to a Federal Claims Court so that they may be compensated for defective vaccinations which have caused the lives of their children to be torn apart by autism.

Fortunately there appears to be compensation on the horizon for these families, however, unfortunately it appears that legislation was passed to protect the drug manufacturers who produce these vaccines.

The first of what eventually could be nine test cases from those claims is the subject of the hearing opening Monday in the U.S. Court of Federal Claims. Three special masters appointed by the court will preside over the hearing, expected to last through June 29.

The court is being asked to decide whether there is a link between autism and childhood vaccines. If it finds one exists, the families could be eligible for compensation under the Vaccine Injury Compensation Fund, a program established by Congress to ensure an adequate supply of vaccines by safeguarding manufacturers from lawsuits. Under the program, people injured by vaccines receive compensation through a special trust fund.

More cases are expected to be heard through out the following months.
