ABC News: Hendra Class Action
Horse owners launch $53 million class action against Hendra vaccine maker Zoetis
Michael Hyland, Special Counsel, with LHD lawyers, and Barrister, John Rowe, respond to questions from the ABC about the firm’s class action on behalf of owners of horses badly affected by the Hendra Virus vaccine.
Horse owners have launched a $53 million law suit against the pharmaceutical company responsible for developing the Hendra vaccine.
The owners, from New South Wales and Queensland, are claiming that Zoetis Australia Pty Limited did not provide adequate warnings about the potential side effects of the vaccine on their horses.
Half a million horses across Australia have been vaccinated since 2012.
