Scout Law Group is filing lawsuits against the Tepezza manufacturer
Scout Law Group is filing a Tepezza Hearing Loss Lawsuit for all people whose hearing was harmed by Tepezza, a medication for thyroid eye diseases.
Tepezza has been linked to irreversible noise-induced hearing loss and tinnitus, a ringing in the ears that can cause hearing difficulty and balance issues. The lawsuit filed by Scout Law Group seeks justice for those affected by Tepezza hearing loss.
The team at Scout has vowed to fight vigorously on their client's behalf and obtain the maximum compensation they deserve. Through this Tepezza Hearing Loss Lawsuit, individuals can get justice with medical treatment or reduced medical expenses to help repair their hearing.
What Exactly Is Tepezza®?
Teprotumumab, also known as Tepezza®, is the first FDA-approved medication for Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), which is typically caused by Graves Disease. Unfortunately, studies have shown that up to 65% of Tepezza infusion patients experienced serious hearing complications.
Horizon Therapeutics, the company that makes Tepezza, said that in its clinical trials, only about 10% of Tepezza® users had problems with their hearing. Many other recent studies show a much higher percentage. Horizon also said that their clinical trials showed most of the side effects related to hearing were temporary. However, other studies have found that these symptoms persisted even after the drug was stopped.
Failure to Properly Notify Patients and Doctors
Tepezza® has been effective in treating TED, but the company that makes it may not have done enough to warn patients and doctors about the serious risks to hearing that come with it. Several published studies have shown that up to 65% of Tepezza® infusion patients may be at risk for hearing problems. Worse, the hearing loss and other resulting complications may be PERMANENT.
These recent studies suggest that doctors keep a close eye on their patients' hearing during and after Tepezza® treatments and even check their hearing before starting the therapy. Patients should also know the treatments may result in permanent hearing loss. Only in this way will doctors and patients be able to accurately assess the risks and potential benefits of using Tepezza®.
Time is of the essence so you must act quickly.
Hearing issues such as hearing loss and tinnitus can be expensive to treat and have lifelong consequences. You may face significant healthcare costs for the rest of your life as a result of Tepezza®.
