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.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
