Establishing Responsibility for Your Loved One’s Overdose or Addiction
It is heart-wrenching to lose a loved one or watch them suffer because
of opioid addiction or overdose. While no amount of compensation and no
judge’s verdict can bring back your loved one, pursuing justice
on your loved one’s behalf can help protect your family against
the financial consequences of death or prescription drug overdose.
Your loved one may have developed an addiction to opioid medication as
a result of an over-prescription from a doctor. Sometimes doctors receive
payment from pharmaceutical companies in exchange for prescribing such
medications, which is neither legal nor ethical and can result in addiction,
dependence, overdose, and even death for the patient. If this has happened
to someone you loved, it may fall to you to stick up for them and go after
the doctor, hospital, and/or pharmaceutical company responsible for fostering
their substance abuse.
