Heparin Injection Lawsuit Settlement

Heparin injection lawsuit settlements are monetary awards granted to those who have suffered severe injuries or have lost a loved one due to serious heparin side effects, taking tainted heparin, or experiencing a heparin overdose (which is typically due to a medical professional's negligence). Heparin settlements are intended to compensate victims for any and all injuries and losses they have experienced as a result of their heparin injuries, including:

  • severe allergic reaction, characterized by breathing difficulties, hives, skin rash, and/or facial or tongue swelling
  • heparin-induced thrombocytopenia, a condition in which the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy blood platelets
  • hyperkalemia, excessive potassium levels in the blood
  • osteoporosis, significant and dangerous loss of bone density
  • excessive bleeding
  • alopecia, chronic hair loss

While the amount of a heparin settlement will vary according to the type and severity of the injuries, the goal of heparin injection lawsuit settlements is to compensate victims for their:

  • outstanding medical bills
  • ongoing treatment costs
  • permanent disabilities
  • lost wages
  • pain and
  • suffering
