Quaid Babies Settle Drug Lawsuit

6/19/2009 7:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Dennis Quaid's twins have settled their lawsuit with Cedars-Sinai, the hospital that made mistakes with the drug Heparin that almost killed the babies.

Under the terms of the settlement the hospital will pay each child $250,000.

Dennis Quaid and Kimberly Buffington previously settled their dispute with Cedars last December for $750,000.

According to the docs, the babies have "not recovered completely from the effects of the injuries." The docs says "the overdose has subjected the [children] to emotional and possible future injuries..."

Under the settlement, Cedars has agreed to provide future medical care for the twins if it's related to the hospital mishap.

9. The families of the babies who actually DIED as a result from heparin overdoses in the other states have not received nearly as much compensation as Dennis Quaid or his twins. His twins appear to be very healthy, thank goodness, and more than likely WILL NOT have any future problems. Like "Troy" said, we the non-movie stars are the ones who ended up paying the Quaids off. I don't agree with this was for once a "lawsuit worthy of"
