By now, you have likely heard of the opioid crisis, which is affecting millions of people across the world. With many people believing it is a national emergency, one of the origins of this problem is simple: over-prescription by physicians. While many pain medications successfully fulfill their purpose, the situation is becoming far more hazardous, as it is fueling an addiction for countless people. Now more than ever, people are turning to legal recourse in order to reclaim what they have lost to opioid addiction. Many of these cases involve fighting for compensation for one’s medical bills, loss of work, loss of the ability to earn wages, and emotional distress. The worst of these cases are in pursuit of justice for wrongful death.
Overuse of these prescriptions has led to a national epidemic of opioid use, and it quite possibly may take decades to combat and successfully resolve. Despite the overwhelming evidence of just how fatal opioids are known to be, many doctors are continuing to over-prescribe these deadly pills in the name of pain management.
At Fieger Law, we believe doctors must be held liable for their negligence in over-prescribing opioids, as well as for prescribing a dangerous mix of prescriptions. This is a form of medical malpractice, in which doctors are abusing their power and putting the lives of their patients in severe danger.
