Dennis Quaid Settles Birth Injury Suit for $750,000

The hospital that gave Dennis Quaid’s twins a lethal dose of Heparin has settled with the family for $750,000. The hospital gave the babies a 10,000-milliliter unit dose of Heparin, a blood thinner, made by the Baxter Healthcare Corp. instead of the prescribed 10 milliliters immediately after the twins were born. The twins struggled for their lives after the lethal overdose of Heparin almost killed them. Fortunately, the twins survived the overdose administered by the healthcare providers at the hospital. A petition filed in the court shows that the Quaids and the hospital have agreed on the parents’ damages, but can still pursue birth injury claims for their children.
