JOIN THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT
HELP FIGHT THE OPIOIDS CRISIS
FightOpioids.us calls on Americans who have been addicted to opioids, are still addicted to opioids or know someone that is to join in a class action lawsuit against "Big Pharma" (manufacturers and distributors.)
States all around the country are filing suits against “Big Pharma” who created the worst crisis ever to hit the American people and it’s growing. This is also a worldwide problem. There were more overdose deaths from opioids so far worldwide than three times the number of soldiers killed in Viet Nam. There needs to be a lawsuit that speaks for individuals and their families that have suffered due to misrepresentation by Big Pharma as to the effects that opioids have on people short and long term. Big Pharma has deceived doctors and the American people with deceptive marketing and deceptive claims that their opioids are non-addictive and have no long term effects. The opioid manufacturing companies have recklessly and consciously turned their backs on the diversion that was happening. Diversion is when a wholesaler or manufacturer does not report or stop suspicious orders of prescriptions for controlled substances written and dispensed to individuals who abuse them or sell them to others. This in turn fuels and expands the illegal market and results in more opioid related overdoses and deaths. Without reporting by those in the supply chain, law enforcement may be delayed in taking action or may not know to take action at all. For an example in 2008 manufacturer McKesson paid the U. S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) $150 million in fines to resolve an investigation by the U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ) for failing to report suspicious orders of certain drugs, including opioids. This is an example of diversion. Another example is a small town in West Virginia, population 1,200, that was supplied enough opioids for a major metropolitan city.
Drug manufacturers and distributors have made billions and billions of dollars from the sale of opioids. They knew from the beginning that these drugs were extremely addictive, but marketed them as a safe product. In my opinion, that is as bad or worse than a common street drug dealer. The drug manufacturers knew their products were addictive, but still promoted sales for profit and caused the deaths of many people worldwide. Now is the time to make them pay for the lives that have been harmed or lost.
There are 27 states that have now filed lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and some have won hundreds of millions against them. A coalition of 41 state attorney generals have served five major opioid manufacturers with subpoenas seeking information about how these companies marketed and sold prescription opioids. The coalition is also demanding documents and information related to distribution practices from these drug distributors.
Our proposed class action lawsuit against Big Pharma will also take them to task for the addiction and tragedies their powerful opioids have caused. It will put names and faces on the crisis versus the states trying to recoup the revenue they lost over the opioid crisis, Any monetary rewards should go directly to the people that have been harmed? Now is the time for you to join us in the most important fight within our borders in U. S. history.
You may recall Erin Brockovich, who discovered that Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) from 1952 to 1966 dumped 370 million gallons of chromium tainted wastewater into unlined wastewater spreading ponds around town of Hinkey, California, located in the Mojave Desert (approximately 120 miles north-northeast of Los Angeles). There were over 1,000 people that suffered from multiple health problems due to the contaminated water. Erin Brockovich, who was not an attorney, but found an attorney who believed in her cause and in 1996 won the largest settlement of a direct-action lawsuit in U.S. history in the amount of $333 million dollars against PG&E. There is strength in numbers.
