In this section, we discuss everything you need to know about opiod lawsuit and how you can file for one.

Opioid Lawsuit

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.

What Are Opioids?

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, opioids refer to a group of prescription narcotics that can block pain pathways in the human brain. When an individual takes opioids, he/she may experience relief from severe pain because the drug molecules tend to bind to opioid receptor sites in the brain, blocking the pain signals.

These pills may also cause a feeling of euphoria leading to addiction. Due to their unique working mechanism, opioids can easily change how your brain functions and have significant addiction potential.

Understanding the Big Lie

Since the late 1990s, opioids such as morphine, fentanyl, hydrocodone, and OxyContin were heavily marketed as a miracle solution to chronic pain. However, what the manufacturers failed to mention in their adverts was that the pain relief came with a serious risk of addiction.

The pills’ dark side was never highlighted, which led many people to develop opioid dependence after taking the medications. In some cases, the addicts were forced to turn to other drug substances such as heroin and opium in the absence of opioids.

In the end, the nation started to grapple with a human-made epidemic of unimaginable scale. The epidemic can also be traced back to the cynical, profit-seeking business decisions repeatedly made by pharmaceutical companies who chose not to warn the public of the dire risks associated with opioid use.

Fighting Back

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, at least 115 Americans lose their lives to opioids every day. More than half a million opioid-related deaths have been recorded in the country since 2000.

With the death toll rising, state and local governments across the country have initiated the process of investigating and taking legal action against the drug manufacturers. Many of the opioid lawsuits filed have been successful, opening the door for other claims by individuals who have suffered the tragic consequences of taking the pills.

Thousands of opioid lawsuits have been filed in different parts of the country, and the legal environment is much more receptive. As the real depth of the epidemic unfolds, the nation is beginning to understand the trauma and damage inflicted on millions of innocent citizens at every level of society.

Our friends, families, colleagues, neighbors, and loved ones have been affected in one way or another. There has never been a good time to correct this great wrong!
