Cause of 7 month old girl’s brain damage unable to be determined.

An infant was taken to a doctor when she started suffering seizures following a vaccination. The doctor put her on a range of medication which was to continue for 8 weeks but supplies ran out after only two weeks. The infant suffered severely from the withdrawal. She is now 9 and has brain damage. The parents want an inquiry held into the doctors actions to determine if he caused it. The doctor has also been accused of mistreating up to 600 other patients.
