Opioid Addiction Personal Injury Lawyers in Massachusetts

Passionately Advocating for those who Need it Most

Prescription drug abuse is a sweeping epidemic in the United States, as many doctors have been proven to thoughtlessly overprescribe dangerous opioids to their patients, resulting in mass addiction. If you or a loved one has suffered from an overdose or is otherwise dealing with an opioid addiction as a result of your doctor's negligent prescription of these drugs, our Massachusetts personal injury lawyers want to hold the responsible party accountable for his or her actions.

Our team will investigate whether the initial prescription was necessary and appropriate for you and your injuries. We will also ensure whether or not the prescription was refilled multiple times, and if the doctor informed you of the addictive nature of these drugs.

Essentially, we will attempt to distinguish whether the doctor pushed this particular prescription onto patients for personal gain, or without authorization. Pharmaceutical companies, drug companies, and hospitals will also be considered in determining responsibility.

The following are examples of commonly prescribed painkillers with a high level of addictiveness, including but not limited to:

  • Oxycodone
  • Hydrocodone
  • Tramadol
  • Fentanyl

Once prescriptions are no longer available, it is no wonder many people turn to theft or other illegal activities in order to feed their addiction. More often than not, people overdose or even transition to doing illegal drugs, such as heroin. Thousands of Americans are affected by this epidemic, which stems greatly from doctors who are unnecessarily prescribing these dangerous drugs.
