Opioids Addiction Lawsuit Lawyer
Over the last few decades, millions of people have become addicted to opioid painkillers. Many people required these medications for an injury, illness or surgery. Tragically, they then found themselves hooked on these powerful narcotics. Not only do victims fall prey to addiction, but hundreds of thousands have lost their lives. Many others are living with medical conditions caused by these dangerous drugs. If you have been harmed by opioids or lost a loved one, you may be eligible to seek legal action for compensation from the opioid manufacturers.
For decades, drugs like Vicodin and OxyContin were heavily prescribed for almost any type of pain or discomfort. They were considered safe, and little to no warnings were given to patients on the dangers of addiction and health consequences. It has only been in recent years that the true dangers of these drugs have been revealed after pharmaceutical companies have made billions in profit. It is believed they knew the dangers of the drugs they sold, which may make them liable for the damages caused to victims.
