Mark T. Sadaka, Esq., MSPH

Mr. Sadaka took his strong commitment to helping others and opened Vaccine Injury Help Center in 2008. After working for many years in other firms driven solely by financial gain, he wanted Vaccine Injury Help Center to be different. Vaccine Injury Help Center donates to many charities and our employees donate their time to serving others in the community. We are different. We believe litigation should have a higher purpose.

We take on some of the most socially significant cases, upholding the view that large corporations have a social obligation of safety and integrity when designing and selling products to consumers. Our vision is to provide a voice for individuals who are harmed by products.

This specialty has made our firm highly valued and trusted counsel to clients as well as a respected leader among colleagues.

Vaccine FAQ

Does the federal government force vaccination?

The short answer is no. Your state is responsible to enacting laws when it comes to mandatory vaccination.

Merck’s lobbying for mandatory Gardasil vaccination for girls is a good example on how drug company’s lobby states for mandatory vaccination. Read about Merck’s attempts here.

Does the FDA perform studies on vaccines to make sure they are safe?

NO. This is the most common misconception in America. The FDA usually does NOT perform any tests or clinical trials. Vaccines are tested on small groups of people by the drug companies to determine if they are safe and effective before it is allowed to be released to the general population. This small group testing is called a clinical trial. The FDA does NOT perform clinical trials.

The FDA relies on clinical trials performed by drug companies to determine whether a vaccine (or any drug for that matter) is safe and effective. The FDA simply analyzes the data from these drug company sponsored trials and monitors them for compliance with the law.

Sometimes the Department of Health and Human Services or the National Institutes of Health will conduct studies. However, these are usually done in partnership with a drug company.

What about vaccines causing autism?

There has been a lot of talk about the use of chemicals in vaccines that are used to prevent the growth of bacteria and fungi causing autism. These chemicals are called preservatives. One preservative in particular is called Thimersol, which contains mercury. A number of scientific studies and court decisions that have addressed the issue determined that Thimersol does not cause autism. The FDA created a website to address the Thimersol issue. Sites like AgeofAutism.com and SafeMinds.orgdisagree with the FDA’s view.

One thing is clear, however, vaccines can cause a number of conditions which cause autistic like symptoms. Encephalopathy is one of those conditions that can damage the brain and cause these symptoms. To learn more about this condition please click here.

Importantly, lawyers fees and costs are paid separately out of the same Vaccine Injury Fund from which awards of compensation are paid, so you don’t have to pay your lawyer with your own money and the lawyer’s fees and costs do not come out of the award of compensation for your vaccine injury.

How long do I have to file my claim?

You must act fast – only have three years to file your claim. For a vaccine related injury, your claim must be filed within 3 years after the first symptom of the vaccine injury.

What should I look for in a vaccine injury law firm?
