Were You Affected By The Opioid Epidemic?
Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that approximately two million people in the United States were dependent on or abused prescription painkillers in 2014. An estimated 15,000 Americans died because of drug overdoses that year alone, and an additional 350,000 people received emergency medical treatment for the misuse of and overdoses of these drugs. Other studies show that these numbers are likely only increasing every year.

The Cost Of Medical Treatment Is Going Up
Medical care providers, no matter if they’re financed at the private, municipal, city, county, state, or federal level, are in charge of providing people with the medical treatment and care they need. This care can be incredibly expensive and potentially unaffordable to many people. These care providers are on the hook for the rest of the costs, but this financial burden should not be carried by these institutions alone. Our attorneys are currently investigating whether drug manufacturers have a financial responsibility to cover some or all of these costs, as well as the influence their actions have had in causing the opioid epidemic.
What Legal Responsibility Does Big Pharma Have?
Attorney generals from multiple states have started to put together an investigation into what role pharmaceutical companies had in creating and continuing the opioid epidemic. The main targets of this investigation are the lack of emphasis placed on how addictive these products are, and the financial responsibility these drug manufacturers have.
