Get the compensation you deserve with the help of our experienced attorneys
There is an opioid epidemic in the United States, and it is at least partially fueled by doctors who negligently fill prescriptions without doing their proper due diligence. Even worse, there are a number of practicing doctors who recklessly or knowingly overprescribe highly addictive medications. If you or a loved one have suffered harm due to prescription opioids, we are here to help. At GED Lawyers, LLP, our experienced prescription malpractice lawyers zealously represent victims and families. We work with families throughout the U.S. with compassion and dedication to helping them find justice after an opioid tragedy.
Negligence in prescribing opioids can quickly lead to addiction and even death
Opioids like hydrocodone, oxycodone, fentanyl, tramadol, and others have legitimate medical uses. Unfortunately, however, these substances are also extremely addictive, and opioid addiction can have a number of negative consequences, including:
- Job loss
- Criminal charges
- Health problems
- Income instability
- Progression to harder street drugs
- Relationship problems
And as noted above, addiction often begins with a legal prescription. If you or a loved one have been harmed by prescription opioids, allow our experienced opioid prescription malpractice attorneys to help you obtain compensation for your losses.
We take an aggressive approach to opioid prescription negligence cases
Our experienced injury attorneys leave no stone unturned when investigating and pursuing an opioid prescription malpractice case. When reviewing the facts of your case, we examine a number of issues, including:
- The necessity of your prescription
- The reasonableness of the dosage and duration of your prescription
- Whether other medications may have been more appropriate
- The appropriateness of the prescription based on your background
- The number of times the prescription was refilled without an appointment
- Whether your doctor provided you with adequate warnings about the addictive qualities of the opioid
- Whether your doctor has a history of overprescribing medications
- Whether your doctor authorized prescriptions over the phone or online
