Dennis Quaid's Hospital Settlement: $750,000

Dennis Quaid and his wife Kimberly Buffington have reached a $750,000 settlement with a hospital that gave their newborn twins an overdose of blood thinner.

“The settlement is the result of extensive negotiations between the parties and their respective legal representatives, and is intended to avoid the time, expense and uncertainty of litigation,” say papers filed in L.A. Superior Court on Monday.

Quaid said on 60 Minutes, “It was the scariest, most frightening day that I think either of us have ever been through, to come face to face with your little kids who – so young in that kind of situation.”

    Hope that the babies are alright. Should teach the hopital a lesson not to give their patients more attention than they do.

    I read where the hospital was only fined $25,000. UNBELIEVABLE!
    I wish the Quaid twins all the best in their recovery from this muck up.

    It would be nice if these 2 actually did something worthwhile with the money and donated it to a childrens charity or something related to children.

    It’s sad what happened to those babies. Dennis is still a major jerk though. I feel bad for his wife for being married to such a cheater.

    are they going to give any of that money to the surrogate mother who bore those children for them? they keep forgetting to mention that mrs quaid didn’t actually have these babies herself. why do they keep leaving this detail out? is there some secret motivation?

    so glad the twins are healthy. i’ve yet to see the “beauty” in mrs quaid though…she is ordinary looking, nothing special. i also have a hard time feeling any pity for her because she is married to a cheating spouse. she knew what she was getting when she married the “jerk”. she is the one who chooses to stay in the relationship and be made a fool of. obviously she has no self worth and could care less what he does.

    I am glad that Kimberly Buffington finally managed to make a settlement with the hospital administration, unfortunately such cases happen a lot of times and the little kids are the one that have to suffer. I thought they will ask for more money, all the media was speaking about this and everybody knew about this issue.
