It is no secret that the opioid epidemic has caused untold damage, heartbreak, and immense pain to millions of Americans. A huge number of people who were looking for a way to relieve their pain ended up crashing into an addiction to the same pain relief pills prescribed to them by qualified doctors. In most cases, the addiction has ended in tragic death of innocent people due to overdose.
Fortunately, the society and legal system in the country have discovered that in many cases, an individual’s dependence on opioids can’t be attributed to moral failure. Instead, evidence shows that the healthcare industry knowingly failed to protect the innocent patients it claimed to serve.
The recklessness seems to have started with drug manufacturers extending to drug distributors and ratified by qualified doctors who ended up prescribing the pills to their patients.
