Holding Opioid Manufacturers Responsible

The opioid epidemic is real and affecting approximately 2 million Americans who currently suffer from addiction. Their lives, and the lives of their families, have been damaged by opioid dependence and a prescribing physician or the drug manufacturer could be to blame. For what damages could these manufacturers be held responsible?

Medical Expenses

Medical expenses related to opioid addiction include drug treatment programs, rehabilitation and any medications used in a drug-assisted detox therapy. The manufacturer may be liable for the cost of the opioid medications that caused the addiction as well.

Lost Wages

If you’ve lost your job because of opioid addiction or had to take an extended leave for treatment and have lost income, the opioid manufacturer for the drug you were prescribed may be held accountable. If the loss of income has resulted in further damages, this could also be considered.

Pain and Suffering

The psychological impacts of drug addiction are far-reaching and affect not only the patient but also their family and friends. This unnecessary suffering is an important part of any opioid lawsuit.

Loss of Consortium

Loss of consortium is the loss of a spouse or family members’ services. If your partner has been impacted severely by drug addiction long-term and they can no longer participate fully in the relationship, this loss of consortium can have lifelong effects for everyone involved.

Funeral Expenses

If your loved one has lost their life to the opioid epidemic, then the drug manufacturers could be liable for the funeral expenses. These could be in addition to covering back medical expenses and lost wages, the psychological suffering of the family and possibly loss of consortium as well.

You trust that the medications you are prescribed are designed to help you, not hurt you. However, when they cause harm, it’s important to know your rights. To discuss your case in more detail and learn what options you have, call Conley Griggs Partin LLP today to schedule your consultation.

Bruce Millar The Millar Law Firm Atlanta, GA

As an Atlanta Attorney I have known Cale Conley personally for nearly 20 years. I first heard about Cale through other lawyers, who talked about his remarkable skill and great results as a trial attorney. When I finally had the chance to refer a case to Cale and work with him as a colleague, I was blown away by the level of his professionalism, knowledge and skill. Over the past few years I have referred several clients with large and complex cases to Cale and his firm and have been extremely impressed with the results he has obtained! In my opinion, Cale is one of the best Attorneys in the United States. Not just in Atlanta or Georgia, but anywhere. I am totally confident in referring any case or client to him. Not only is he a great attorney, he and his firm and partners take good care of clients and care deeply about them. If I could give Cale and his firm more than 5-Stars I would.

I had the pleasure of trying a very complicated products liability case with Cale Conley and Davis Popper. They and their entire office are fantastic, and I could not recommend them more highly. The entire process, from the time that we brought them in to work with us, through the course of the case and trial, was seamless. Cale, Richard, Rance, and Davis are some of the finest trial lawyers in the Country, and I look forward to working with them on future cases.
