Tepezza Litigation

Tepezza Litigation for Hearing Loss

The development of new prescription drugs to treat diseases is something that is very beneficial to society and allows for the improvement of the lives of people suffering around the world. Unfortunately, with the development of new prescription drugs comes the dangers of unintended side effects, and one of those newly developed drugs is called Tepezza.

Tepezza is a prescription drug that was developed by Horizon Therapeutics for the treatment of Thyroid Eye Disease, also known as Graves’ eye disease. Tepezza was officially approved by the FDA in January 2020. The drug is administered through an injection for five months in three-week increments. Recently there have been several studies that link the use of Tepezza with various levels of hearing loss and ringing in the ears.

Over the past year, there has been a series of lawsuits filed against Horizon Therapeutics by Plaintiffs who have suffered hearing loss as a result of their use of Tepezza. These lawsuits have been consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation in order to bring a resolution to these numerous claims for injuries suffered by the use of Tepezza.

Who are the parties involved in the lawsuit?

The numerous lawsuits filed have been consolidated into a Multi-District Litigation in the Northern District of Illinois. The Plaintiffs in the lawsuit are patients that suffered hearing damage as a result of receiving the Tepezza injections for treatment of Thyroid Eye Disease.

The Defendant in the lawsuit is Horizon Therapeutics USA, Inc., a biopharmaceutical company focused on research and development of medicine for people suffering from rare and rheumatic diseases.

What is being alleged in the lawsuit?

The Plaintiffs are accusing the Defendant of Failure to Warn, Negligent Failure to Warn, Design Defect, and Negligent Design Defect. As a result of the Defendants actions, the Plaintiffs have suffered from hearing loss and other auditory symptoms caused by taking Tepezza. As a result of Plaintiff’s injuries, they have endured substantial pain and suffering and incurred significant medical expenses and will continue to be financially challenged and emotionally harmed.

What does this mean for you?

Experiencing hearing damage caused by Tepezza can have profound and lasting consequences. Individuals affected may face significant health challenges, substantial medical expenses, loss of income or future earning capacity, and immeasurable emotional distress. Legal actions arising from these injuries are pursued and contested due to the severity of the damages.

Manufacturers and other responsible parties often deploy extensive defense strategies, emphasizing the importance of having assertive legal representation. If you have experienced serious health issues related to Tepezza, legal action may be a viable option for you. A seasoned lawyer or legal team will be dedicated to helping victims understand their rights and will aggressively pursue the highest compensation for their pain and suffering.
