In the United States, there has been a 300% increase in opioid prescriptions since 1999. As a result, opioid addiction has increased as well, making it the leading cause of death in individuals under 50 years old. This crisis has produced countless lawsuits filed against pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies, hospitals, and doctors. Many of these lawsuits claim that the defendants are responsible for the plaintiff’s opioid addiction. In a majority of cases, it is alleged that the plaintiff was over-prescribed opioids for a medical condition, or was prescribed opioids when it may not have been necessary, and the plaintiff developed an addiction as a result.
Some companies facing opioid-related lawsuits include:
- Cardinal Health
- Purdue Pharma LP
- Endo Pharmaceuticals
- McKesson Corporation
- AmerisourceBergen Corp
- Teva Pharmaceuticals (and its subsidiary, Cephalon)
- Johnson & Johnson (and its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals)
