Pharmaceutical companies are about to be devastated with several lawsuits demanding compensation for opioid addiction health care costs.
According to news reports, Mississippi-native Mike Moore, a former attorney general, is set to call on at least 25 states to join him in suing Big Pharma for harming and killing millions of Americans who fell victim to opioid poisons.
Moore says he wants to play a crucial role in changing the industry's practices to save lives via better treatments. The former attorney general has a successful track record of litigation, which includes a lawsuit he filed against BP during the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill that took place in the Gulf of Mexico.
(Natural News) What many are now referring to as the “opioid crisis” represents one of the worst epidemics of our time, claiming more than 64,000 lives annually, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA). But the perpetrator of it all, the pharmaceutical industry, will not be going unpunished if a wave of potential lawsuits soon to be pending in multiple states is victorious in achieving justice.
New reports suggest that Big Pharma could soon go the way of Big Tobacco as a result of these suits, seeing as how the very same lawyer that tanked the cigarette industry is now going after the legal drug cartels that make and sell them. Mike Moore, a former attorney general from Mississippi, is aggressively calling on states to pursue legal remedy against drug companies for failing to properly calculate the addiction risks of their opioid drugs.
