Grossman Law Offices Accepting Opioid Lawsuits

It's hardly news that the United States is in the grip of an opioid crises. In fact, since 2000, more people have died of opioid overdoses than were murdered with firearms.

The highly addictive nature of opioids has led many people to have their lives turned upside-down, through lost employment, addiction, and sadly, even the loss of loved ones. The sad reality of this crises is that much of it was preventable.

While many people are quick to blame the addicts for their own plight, internal drug company documents, whistle-blowers, and other evidence has emerged in the past few years that suggest that drug companies were publicly warning the public of the dangers of opioids through official statements and warning labels, while turning around and attempting to downplay the risks associated with their drugs in their marketing strategies.

Coupled with unscrupulous doctors who turned their practices into pill-mills, pharmaceutical manufacturers may have preyed upon the weakest and most vulnerable in our communities, in order to boost sales and revenue. If allegations in the media are to be believed, a large portion of the blame for this epidemic rests in the board rooms of certain pharmaceutical companies.

For these reasons, and in an attempt to hold those who broke the rules accountable for the damage they have sowed, Grossman Law Offices is now accepting opioid lawsuits.
