If you, a family member or loved one have died because of an opioid overdose, or an opioid addiction that led to use of other drugs by which your loved one died, you may have a claim for compensation, either against the doctors who prescribed those medications or the drug manufacturers. The drug manufacturers have a duty in American law to put out safe products that are used for the reason for which they’re manufactured and not to make misrepresentations to the public about the addictive nature or the propriety of prescribing those drugs for long-term chronic pain.
These drugs are highly addictive, and the drug manufacturers haven’t told us this till very recently, and they also make misrepresentations to doctors. They put people over profit. The types of claims that folks have when your family member, friend, loved one has been killed because of misrepresentations by a drug manufacturing company or the negligence of a doctor include medical malpractice, products liability, both strict products liability and negligent products liability, as well as fraud and misrepresentation, as well as Merchandising Practices Act. Numerous states – Tennessee, Missouri, Ohio and these states are keeping going; I don’t know when you’re going to watch this video – are making claims against these drug manufacturers for active misrepresentation and consumer fraud claims under the applicable rule of each state they’re in about the misrepresentations and lies made by drug manufacturing companies which cause addiction, death and additional health care costs in the various states and counties in the United States.
