Opioids Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

Opioid painkillers have caused an epidemic with fatal overdoses and drug addiction throughout the country. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) estimates that over 200,000 people died from opioid overdose from 1999 to 2016, with five times more people overdosing in 2016 than in 1999. Opioid use has destroyed lives and families but made pharmaceutical companies billions of dollars. Now, the tables are turning, and makers of opioid drugs may be liable to pay for damages caused by these dangerous drugs.

Opioids like Vicodin and OxyContin are frequently prescribed for pain. For many years, they were considered safe and little information was given on the dangers of these drugs. After decades of use and misuse, the dangers of these drugs have been revealed. Manufacturers are accused of failing to provide adequate warnings about the risks of these drugs. Doctors and medical facilities are also being held legally responsible for overprescribing or not monitoring safe use of these drugs by their patients.

Injuries Caused by Opioid Drug Use

Millions of people have been affected by opioid drug use. It is not only the families that have lost loved ones to opioid overdose. There are many other injuries that have been sustained from these dangerous drugs. Some of the injuries caused by overuse of opioids include:

  • Drug addiction
  • Heart damage
  • Brain damage
  • Babies born with opioid addiction and other health complications
  • Death caused by overdose

Opioid injuries can devastate the victim’s life and those of their family. Addicts may suffer health problems, job losses and legal issues. Victims and their families can face lost income, medical costs, treatment costs and many other damages. If opioid drugs have caused serious health or addiction issues in your life, or you lost a loved one from opioid overdose, you may be eligible to seek compensation.

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 19 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
