Municipalities Considering Legal Action Against Opioid Manufacturers, Distributors
We have an epidemic in America. We have all seen it on the news. We may even know someone who has been personally impacted. Opioids, especially addictive prescription painkillers, have caused a wave of addiction that has wreaked havoc on countless of our communities.
A new article in the Washington Post shines a light on the crisis, specifically highlighting how some of the hardest hit cities, counties, and states are now considering legal action against the manufacturers and distributors of these drugs.
Baron & Budd is currently investigating “potential lawsuits related to allegations that pharmaceutical distributors deliberately failed to monitor and report suspicious orders of opioids, potentially playing a central role in creating an opioid addiction epidemic.”
