Hundreds of Opioid Lawsuits Centralized in Ohio
Hundreds of opioid overdose lawsuits have been filed, and the number continues to grow rapidly. As of January 2018, over 200 lawsuits and class actions nationwide were centralized under U.S. District Judge Dan A. Polster in the Northern District of Ohio.
These lawsuits accuse pharmaceutical companies like Purdue Pharma of aggressively marketing opioids, downplaying dangerous side effects, and failing to monitor suspiciously large drug orders. Lawsuits have been filed by states, cities, counties, and individuals.

What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm in Texas. However, we are not filing an opioid overdose class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of people who were prescribed opioids and accidentally overdosed or died.
About Class Actions
Class actions have been filed by states against pharmaceutical companies that sell opioid medications, such as Purdue Pharma. However, the class actions are seeking reimbursement for the cost of dealing with the opioid epidemic — not compensation for victims.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Our lawyers file individual opioid lawsuits so we can focus on helping people who were injured or died from accidental overdoses. We specialize in holding pharmaceutical companies responsible for paying medical expenses and compensation for wrongful deaths. There is no excuse for selling dangerous drugs and downplaying the deadly risks.
