"without doubt The most important consideration for those affected by narcolepsy is the loss of income. It says the lawyer of the Mats Wikner who fought for the victims in several years."
"The so-called vaccinskandalen continues to this day. For although it has been ten years, diagnosed there are still people with narcolepsy following vaccination with Pandemrix."
"– Only on the Academic, we have had eight cases of Pandemrix-triggered narcolepsy in the last three years. The most difficult thing is to call in symtomdebuten which should be within two years from the vaccinationstillfället, " says Anne-Marie Landtblom, professor and chief physician at the Academic hospital in Uppsala and in charge of a 30 person affected."
"because of this, it is difficult to say exactly how many people ultimately will be affected as a result of the mass-medication which took place ten years ago. Advokat Mats Wikner, who is representing several of the victims, says that so far, the moves of less than 500 people, including about 100 of these have not received the link between the disease and vaccination is approved yet."
"– Many were children then, but are young adults who are heading out in the world of work today, " says Mats Wikner to the TT."
"As a lawyer, he has fought long for the victims to get fair compensation for their injuries."
"– by far The most important compensation to the affected is the loss of income, " says Mats Wikner."
"A krux has early discovered is that covered by pharmaceutical insurance, as a financial compensate for this type of damage, contains a cap of 150 million sek in total."
"– But after the pressure came a law in 2016 which the state goes in if the money runs out, " says Mats Wikner."
"today, there is a ceiling of ten million dollars for each victim. That is to say, to each affected most can get ten million crowns in compensation for their loss of income. It may sound like a lot of money, but many of those affected are young and have a life ahead of him."
"– Compensation is calculated on the basis of a snittinkomst and is determined individually. Some are severely affected and may not work at all, so a number of individuals are going to hit the ceiling, perhaps already in his 50s when the money runs out, " says Mats Wikner."
"in Addition, each affected also received a lump sum compensation for pain and suffering with 50 000 sek."
"– They will also receive a tax-free compensation for but. There is no big amount, but moves about 100 000 to 400 000 sek, depending on the degree of disability, " says Mats Wikner."
"this year is the last year for the people affected to apply for compensation, as covered by pharmaceutical insurance has a ten-year preskriptionsregel. But according to Mats Wikner, it is still an idea to send in an application even if it was more than ten years ago, the vaccination was carried out, since it is possible to get compensation from the state via the administrative services agency, which has a limitation period of 15 years."
