Opioids are prescription narcotics possessing properties similar to opium and heroin. While opioids can ease pain, they also can create an addictive euphoric high in users.
The U.S. Senate Homeland Security & Governmental Affairs Committee conducted an investigation and released a report in February 2018 that stated it had found evidence suggesting the pharmaceutical industry paid millions of dollars to several third party patient advocacy groups in order to encourage “the advancement of opioids-friendly messaging.”
Purdue Pharma, Endo, Janssen and other drug manufacturers are facing dozens of civil actions currently pending in state and federal courts. The defendants in many suits manufacture market and sell prescription opioid pain medications, including brand-name drugs: OxyContin; Hysingla ER; Nucynta, Actiq; Opana/Opana ER; Percodan; and Percocet.
If you or a loved one have suffered from addiction or death as a result of taking opioids, you may be entitled to a claim. Contact us today for a free consultation.
