National Opioid Injury and Death Attorney
Opioid Injury and Death Lawyers represent the families of Americans killed by opioid addiction. Drug manufacturers lie to us about the addictive nature of opioids. Drugs prescribied by doctors that contain opioids cause: addiction, drug seeking, use of other legal pain killers and use of other, illegal drugs. Doctors should only prescribe powerful opioid pain-killers such as fentanyl, oxycodone, hydrocodone, codeine, morphine, or methadone (drugs with common names such as Vicodin, Percocet, and OxyContin) for short term, intense pain, including surgery recovery, and cancer treatment, but not to treat chronic pain.
Prescribing these drugs in high doses and for prolonged periods of time, in many cases can lead to addiction and other injuries, including dependence, overdose, and death. America’s opioid epidemic has killed tens of thousands of Americans. It’s a national tragedy. And all of these injuries could have been prevented. Drug manufacturers of opioid pain-killers have advertised their products as being less addictive than they actually are. Drug manufacturers have sometimes alleged that these drugs are safe to treat chronic pain. This marketing has lulled scores of medication users and even doctors, into a false sense of security in using and prescribing such drugs.

Gary Burger helped my family through one of the worst events in our lives with the loss of my nephew. Which left his son at age of 5 with no father. Gary walked my brother and I through every step with the most compassion I have ever seen a lawyer put out. He made sure that my nephew will be taken care of for the rest of his life. His assistant Casey is wonderful as well. I think she goes above and beyond. Thank you Gary for a job well done. You will be our accident lawyer forever.Betty Honaker
