Why Are Tepezza Lawsuits Being Filed?

Tepezza (teprotumumab) is a drug intended to treat Thyroid Eye Disease (TED). Proptosis, a condition where the eyes bulge forward, is a sign of the autoimmune disease TED, which is quite uncommon. Patients may have a variety of symptoms as their eyes protrude forward, including double vision, trouble closing their eyelids, and eye pain. 

The drug has been linked to numerous serious hearing-related side effects. Patients who have used Tepezza and experienced these serious side effects are filing lawsuits against Horizon Therapeutics, the manufacturer of Tepezza. The complaints accuse Horizon of failing to adequately warn consumers about the risks of using the medication, or to properly test the safety of Tepezza before releasing it onto the market. 

These lawsuits accuse Horizon of failing in their responsibility to fully inform consumers of the risks associated with taking Tepezza. Plaintiffs are seeking compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages incurred due to a disability related to their injury from taking Tepezza, pain and suffering associated with the injury caused by taking Tepezza, and punitive damages for Horizon’s accused failure to warn consumers of the risks associated with Tepezza use. 

In 2022, individuals who experienced hearing loss or tinnitus after receiving injections of Tepezza began taking legal action against Horizon. The lawsuits accuse Horizon of failing to adequately warn patients and doctors about the risk of hearing damage associated with the use of Tepezza. The plaintiffs in these cases argue that they would not have taken Tepezza for treatment if they had been made aware of this risk.

It is expected that many more Tepezza hearing loss lawsuits will be filed as more patients suffer from hearing damage caused by the drug. Currently, the lawsuits have not been consolidated into a class action lawsuit, but if the number of cases continues to grow, this may change in the future.

Tepezza, developed by Horizon Therapeutics, is the first and only FDA-approved medication for Thyroid Eye Disease (TED), a rare autoimmune disease that causes eye bulging, double vision, and eye pain. Tepezza is administered intravenously (IV) over a period of three to six months, and it inhibits the activity of insulin-like growth factor 1 receptor (IGF-1R), which is believed to contribute to the development of TED. The drug has been shown to improve these symptoms in patients with active TED.

Tepezza is still under its original patent protection and is administered by injections. It inhibits the activity of the protein insulin-like growth factor-1, which plays a significant role in the development of the disorder. Notably, in January 2020, the FDA approved Tepezza as the first drug for the treatment of TED.

A 2021 study reports that up to 65% of patients who received Tepezza infusions experienced hearing-related side effects. Many seem to be permanent.

However, the manufacturer of Tepezza, Horizon Therapeutics, reported in their clinical trials that only around 10% of patients reported hearing complications. That’s a much lower figure than that shown by recent studies. The manufacturer also stated that the hearing-related side effects reported in their trials were mainly temporary. But other studies have indicated that hearing-related side effects persisted even after stopping Tepezza.

Accordingly, hearing impairment is a possible side effect of Tepezza. There is also a rare possibility of permanent hearing loss. Studies and case reports have documented various changes in hearing function associated with teprotumumab treatment. Some experts claim that Tepezza may cause hearing problems in up to 65% of patients.

Lawsuits have been filed in all 50 states against Tepezza. They allege its manufacturer failed to warn patients and healthcare providers about the risk of hearing loss and tinnitus. Tinnitus is a ringing in the ears, while autophony is the perception of one’s own voice as excessively loud or echoing. A number of patients have reported a variety of symptoms. This includes subjective hearing loss, tinnitus, ear plugging, muffled hearing and autophony. However, some studies have shown that these symptoms can resolve over time. It is recommended to undergo baseline testing for ear conditions until more research is available on Tepezza.

Otolaryngologists have raised concerns about the otologic side effects of Tepezza. Scientific publications and numerous scientific papers have discussed how Tepezza treatment can result in or contribute to hearing loss, tinnitus and other auditory related health issues.  

An example was the study “Teprotumumab For Patients With Active Thyroid Eye Disease: A Pooled Data Analysis, Subgroup Analyses, and Off-Treatment Follow-Up Results From Two Randomized, Double-Masked, Placebo-Controlled, Multicentre Trials.” This study was funded by Horizon Therapeutics, the manufacturer of the drug. If found hearing loss (10%) as one of the most commonly reported adverse events in two teprotumumab trials. The trials were conducted at 28 specialty centers and published in The Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology.

A study published in the Journal of the Endocrine Society in May 2021 and presented at ENDO 2021 explored the risk of hearing loss for patients receiving Tepezza infusion treatments. Patients who reported hearing symptoms underwent hearing and patulous eustachian tube tests. 

Among patients who received four Tepezza treatments, 46% reported otologic symptoms, including hearing loss, new tinnitus, ear plugging or muffled hearing, and autophony. 23% of patients experienced sensorineural hearing loss that persisted for 3 months after stopping Tepezza. Adverse events developed after an average of 3.6 infusions. Researchers described the hearing loss as a “concerning adverse event” that “should be further studied.” Journal of the Endocrine Society.

The makers of Tepezza, Horizon, are accused by the plaintiffs of failing to sufficiently inform patients of the medication’s potential of hearing loss. Every Tepezza case claims that the warning was insufficient and severely underestimated the level of danger, despite the fact that hearing loss is acknowledged as a potential Tepezza adverse effect.

The lawsuits contend that a notice that fails to clearly express the risk is actually no warning at all. Tepezza presented a substantially higher risk of hearing loss, and Horizon should have been aware that this hearing loss would be irreversible. There was a ton of evidence to support this when Tepezza was submitted for FDA clearance. According to medical literature, hearing loss is related with low levels of IGF-I, a protein that is essential for hearing.

When complaints and studies tying Tepezza to hearing impairment started to emerge shortly after the medicine was licensed, Horizon should at the very least have been made aware of the problems with it. Many lawsuits seeking compensation for hearing loss and other hearing issues have resulted from the maker of Tepezza failing to inform patients of the hazards associated with the medication.

In January 2023, a group of Tepezza plaintiffs filed a motion to consolidate ten Tepezza hearing loss lawsuits that are pending in the Northern District of Illinois. If approved, this would result in the cases being heard before a single judge with a consolidated discovery process. Horizon Therapeutics, the manufacturer of Tepezza, has opposed the motion on the grounds of significant differences in the facts of each case. There are currently a limited number of Tepezza hearing loss lawsuits, and lawyers agree that these are strong claims with a high settlement value. 

Recently, the biopharmaceutical company Amgen agreed to acquire Horizon Therapeutics for $116.50 per share with the aim of expanding its rare disease drug portfolio, including Tepezza. However, Amgen investors have now filed a lawsuit to stop the acquisition, due to worries about the Tepezza litigation costs. Although a smaller number of litigations may not be favorable for the pool of injured, plaintiffs in these cases may achieve higher settlements. Horizon or Amgen, the manufacturer and its recent acquirer, would be able to pay the settlement amounts without considerable difficulty.

Victims are eager to know about the possible Tepezza settlements. For plaintiffs, the Amgen acquisition could be beneficial as it would provide more resources for fair settlement amounts to be awarded to victims.

The outcome of the Tepezza lawsuits, which were initiated in late 2022, is yet to be determined and no settlements or compensation by the manufacturer have been reported.

Therefore, it is difficult to predict the potential settlement value of a Tepezza lawsuit. However, our lawyers have estimated that a successful Tepezza hearing loss case with favorable facts could have a settlement value ranging from $120,000 to $300,000. The settlement amount would depend on various factors, such as the plaintiff’s age and whether they had preexisting hearing issues. It is worth noting that cases involving significant, permanent hearing loss in relatively young plaintiffs could potentially be worth much more.

To get a better understanding of the potential settlement value of a Tepezza hearing loss case, it’s helpful to examine prior settlements and verdicts in cases involving hearing loss or tinnitus. For instance, a bellwether trial in the 3M earplugs class action resulted in a verdict of $5 million in compensatory damages for hearing loss suffered by an Army veteran. Another 3M earplug bellwether verdict from April 2022 awarded a veteran $2.2 million in compensatory damages for hearing loss allegedly caused by defective earplugs. In a car accident case from New York in 2020, a two-year-old suffered permanent hearing loss and settled for $250,000, likely the available insurance limit. Lastly, in a Washington auto accident case from 2020, a 60-year-old plaintiff with permanent hearing loss was awarded $101,025 in a jury verdict and received another $25,000 in a settlement.

Accordingly, while it’s difficult to determine the exact settlement value of a Tepezza hearing loss case, it’s possible that a successful case could result in a settlement ranging from $120,000 to $300,000, depending on various factors. Examining prior settlements and verdicts in cases involving hearing loss or tinnitus can also provide insight into what a successful case might be worth.

How can I tell if I might qualify for a Tepezza Lawsuit?

You may qualify to file a lawsuit against Tepezza if you experienced (1) permanent hearing loss or  tinnitus; or (2) persistent (continued for 6 months or more) hearing loss  or tinnitus, after taking Tepezza, and (3) your usage was prior to onset of the hearing loss or tinnitus.

What are my legal fees, if your lawyers take my Tepezza case?

Our good news for you is that if you qualify, the legal representation will be entirely contingent fee. That means that all legal costs and expenses are borne by the law firm representing you. You pay nothing out of pocket. The legal costs and expenses come out of the settlement or award you receive. 

Remember, unlike most other mass torts sights, you will be represented by leaders in this field of mass torts, not simply personal injury lawyers or whomever is paying for leads to a marketing firm. 

And what happens on the off chance the case is not settled or won? You will owe nothing because the risk is entirely borne by law firm representing you.

What can I recover?

Mass torts cases frequently provide very high dollar settlements, where each plaintiff receives as recovery in the hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. 

Having said that, we and our network of law firms have talked to thousands of injured. As we’ve heard time and again, and truly believe — there is no compensation that makes up for an injury, especially to one’s child. 

But now that your family is dealing with the pain and suffering, through no fault of your own, you may be entitled to very significant financial compensation. 

To be specific, you would be entitled to recover past, present and future medical and mental health bills, as well as lost wages. Recovery dollars also compensate for non-economic losses, such as past, present and future pain and suffering, loss of consortium (companionship), and emotional distress.

If I'm qualified, do I have any obligations to Lawsuit Help Desk? To your lawyers?

You have no obligations to us if you’re qualified. If we find that you are qualified, and you wish to proceed with the mass torts firms we have provided for you, the lawyers will discuss the retention agreement with you.

How long do I have to file my Tepezza Lawsuit?

For yours and your family’s sake, act quickly, even if it’s not with us. Why? Statutes of limitations restrictions exacerbated by lagging scientific research may prevent your recovery. Also, if you file late, you may miss important settlement opportunities.  That’s why it’s very important to secure legal representation as soon as possible. In fact, one of our lawyers’ first actions for you will be to check your state’s statute of limitations and repose. 

For every injury, each state has its own statutes of limitations (SOL) and statutes of repose (SOR). These statutes prevent lawsuits from being filed or enforced after preset time limits, which vary from state-to-state. After these periods pass, even if a lawsuit is filed, it will be dismissed and you will collect nothing. 

It may have taken years for scientific research to show a connection between the cause – here, toxic baby formula – and the patient’s symptoms. 

Manufacturers very often settle cases with thousands of defendants at a time; but in order to qualify as a recovery victim, your lawyer must have already filed your lawsuit. Contrary to urban myth, our lawyers have an obligation to the court to conduct their own due diligence – to see whose cases qualify based on leading medical research.

Monthly Status Updates of Tepezza Lawsuits

Invoking the principle of federal preemption, Tepezza’s manufacturer, Horizon Therapeutics, is attempting to have the claims for hearing loss against it rejected. In product liability actions, particularly those involving allegations of failing to warn about the risks of prescription drugs, preemption motions are highly popular. The FDA controlled the capacity of Horizon to alter the warning label for Tepezza, according to Horizon’s request to dismiss. As a result, the FDA contends that the tort claims made by the Tepezza plaintiffs are preempted by federal law.

January 20, 2023: Attorneys for Tepezza plaintiffs have submitted a request to consolidate ten hearing loss cases related to the drug currently pending in the Northern District of Illinois. The motion aims to combine these cases before a single judge.

If the motion is granted, it would result in a form of a local multi-district litigation (MDL) within the federal district, which would only encompass these ten Tepezza hearing loss cases, and others in the future.

Since lawyers began actively filing Tepezza hearing loss lawsuits about four months ago, it has become clear that there are not many lawsuits in the works. Despite having a strong position in developing these cases, there have not been 100 leads. No lawyer has a significant volume of Tepezza lawsuits to file, indicating that the Tepezza litigation will be small. However, lawyers agree that these are strong claims that will have high settlement values, which is good for victims but not for lawyers. Horizon or Amgen will have the resources to pay the expected high settlement amounts.

Horizon, however, has opposed the consolidation and stated that each Tepezza lawsuit includes unique and distinct factual allegations. There are currently fewer than 20 Tepezza product liability claims being heard in federal courts, including these ten in Illinois.

January 18, 2023: Biopharmaceutical giant Amgen announced its plan to acquire Horizon Therapeutics, the maker of Tepezza, for $116.50 per share. However, a group of Amgen investors has since filed a lawsuit to block the sale, raising concerns about claims that Horizon concealed information about the risk of hearing damage linked to Tepezza.

This news is viewed as a positive development for those considering filing a Tepezza lawsuit.

Weibel v. Horizon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (1:22-cv-4518) and Nethery v. Horizon Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (1:22-cv-5005) are the two Tepezza hearing loss claims that were recently filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Chicago). Both plaintiffs were diagnosed with TED and given a full course of Tepezza infusions by their doctor during a four-month period, according to the nearly identical factual accusations in both cases. The plaintiffs claim that their doctors were not informed of the possibility of hearing loss before either of them had significant hearing loss and tinnitus shortly after Tepezza infusions.

Lawyers for Horizon submitted a similar Request to Dismiss in each of these Tepezza hearing loss cases on October 25, 2022. In a short, two-page request to dismiss, the defendants contend that the federal preemption doctrine requires the dismissal of the plaintiffs’ failure-to-warn claims. Tepezza’s warning labels are governed by federal law and regulations, which preclude state law tort claims, according to the argument, which is frequently made in pharmaceutical tort cases.

It’s crucial to remember that defenses of federal preemption in drug cases often fail. This is because to the fact that federal law and FDA regulations allow medication companies to change their warning labels without seeking FDA clearance in the event that new risk information materializes, which is precisely what is being charged in the Tepezza cases.

It is critical to get legal representation if Tepezza use resulted in hearing loss or other issues for you or someone you know. These lawsuits serve as a reminder of the value of accurate warning labels and the possible risks of prescription drugs.

The Hidden Agony: Exposing the Unspoken Truth About Tepezza and the Battle for Justice

The Hidden Agony: Exposing the Unspoken Truth About Tepezza and the Battle for Justice

New treatments are often hailed as miracles, but what about the shadowy side effects that patients silently endure? Enter Tepezza, an FDA-approved drug for the treatment of thyroid eye disease (TED). While it initially brought hope, disturbing reports of underreported side effects are now surfacing.

  • Born in 2020, Tepezza offered a non-surgical solution for TED sufferers, a significant advancement in medical science.
  • However, the drug's supposedly underreported side effects have led to increasing concern. Patients report experiencing severe fatigue, high blood pressure, and irregular heartbeats – conditions not prominently disclosed in the original side effects list.
  • Some even allege cases of congestive heart failure, stroke, and death.

Amidst these controversies, the patients' voices remain unheard. They share their stories online, hoping to raise awareness about the alleged underreporting and dismissal of side effects by the medical community.

  • One patient experienced severe chest pain and shortness of breath after taking Tepezza. Yet, the connection was ruled unlikely.
  • Another patient, a 45-year-old woman, believes her mini-stroke was linked to the treatment.

These troubling revelations have led to a legal battle against Tepezza and its manufacturer, Horizon Therapeutics. Victims are coming together, seeking justice through mass tort lawsuits.

  • Mass torts allow multiple plaintiffs to consolidate their cases against a single defendant, in this case, Horizon Therapeutics.
  • The plaintiffs are demanding compensation for their physical suffering, emotional distress, and financial hardship.

However, the legal path isn't smooth. Lawsuits against big pharmaceutical companies often stretch for years, mired in complex medical evidence and high-stakes financial implications. The battle to prove causation—that the drug indeed caused the conditions—becomes a daunting task, especially when side effects have allegedly been underreported.

The Tepezza controversy also raises questions about the transparency and accountability of the drug approval process. Critics argue that manufacturer-conducted clinical trials can present a conflict of interest, and the expedited approval process for breakthrough drugs may allow potential problems to be overlooked.

In light of the Tepezza case, calls for reform are growing:

  • More robust post-market surveillance is needed, particularly for drugs fast-tracked through the approval process.
  • There's a need for better systems to collect and address patient reports of side effects.
  • Increased transparency in the reporting process is crucial, ensuring potential side effects are clearly communicated to the public.

The Tepezza story serves as a stark reminder of the need for vigilance in healthcare. It's a call to action for not just reforming drug approval and reporting processes, but also for giving patients a stronger voice in their healthcare journey. The fight for justice for Tepezza victims symbolizes the fight for all patients' rights—to be heard, respected, and protected.

IV. Potential Outcomes of Tepezza Lawsuit Settlement

A. Compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering

One potential outcome of a Tepezza lawsuit settlement is compensation for the victim’s medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. This compensation can help cover the costs of medical treatments, medications, and any other expenses related to the victim’s injury.

B. Punitive Damages

In some cases, victims may also be eligible to receive punitive damages as part of their Tepezza lawsuit settlement. Punitive damages are awarded to punish the defendant for their actions and to deter similar conduct in the future.

In Tepezza cases, punitive damages may be awarded if the court finds that Horizon Therapeutics acted recklessly or knowingly disregarded the safety of its consumers by failing to adequately warn them of the risks associated with Tepezza use.

While not all Tepezza lawsuits may result in punitive damages, working with experienced attorneys can help victims pursue the fullest extent of legal remedies available to them.

C. Compensation Takeaways

In conclusion, victims of Tepezza medication side effects have the right to seek legal recourse and compensation for their injuries. It is important to act quickly and seek legal advice from experienced attorneys to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the settlement process.
