Moberly v. Secretary of Health and Human Services,
Office of Special Masters, No. 98-0910V
Filed: Feb. 28, 2006

  • Diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT) vaccine
  • Seizure disorder accompanied by developmental delay
  • Not entitled to compensation

Petitioner Teresa Moberly alleged that the diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus (DPT) vaccination that her daughter Molly Moberly received on September 17, 1996 caused her daughter’s seizures, and eventually her intractable seizure disorder accompanied by developmental delay.

Special Master Edwards found that petitioner did not substantiate her claim with adequate medical opinion, and thus was not entitled to compensation.

The reasoning of the Special Master exhibits the following features:

    • It assessed the credibility of petitioner’s expert on causation, found the evidence not credible, and ruled that the petitioner lacked sufficient evidence to support the claim.
