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.
