Filing a personal injury claim, such as a Tepezza claim on behalf of a family member, is possible in two scenarios:
Other cases when a family member can file a personal injury claim include wrongful death and the family member being a minor. Still, Tepezza patients are not part of any of these categories. Tepezza infusion treatment is not approved for children, meaning minors cannot be the subjects of a Tepezza claim.

Patients treated with Tepezza infusion treatment are people suffering from thyroid eye disease (TED), a rare progressive autoimmune disease associated with the hyperactivity of the thyroid gland, and it is only prescribed to adult patients. Though effective in treating TED, Tepezza may have life-altering adverse effects of proportions unwarned for by the manufacturer. Adverse effects that are significantly more severe and have a higher percentage of occurrence than Horizon Pharmaceuticals warned for and can therefore be the grounds for filing a Tepezza claim are:
These side effects of the Tepezza infusion treatment can alter the patient's way of life and decrease their quality of life. Not being able to perform at work, even losing a job, or not being able to interact normally in society creates debilitating feelings. Still, the situation is only worsened by the financial component of hearing loss or tinnitus.
If you or a loved one in your family received Tepezza infusion treatment and subsequently developed hearing loss or tinnitus, you may be entitled to compensation for associated damages.
