Opioids—prescription and illicit—are the main driver of drug overdose deaths. Opioids were involved in 33,091 deaths in 2015, and opioid overdoses have quadrupled since 1999. While this is a terrible epidemic that affects many people’s lives and their communities, it is also a very costly epidemic that our local cities, counties & states have to incur the heavy increase in costs to combat.
Bonsignore Trial Lawyers (BTL) can serve as your local counsel to combat this Opioid epidemic, and no firm is more qualified to perform this role. BTL has focused on complex litigation for 25 years and served as Court Appointed Lead Counsel in almost two dozen state-based coordinated actions and three federal Multi- District Litigation (MDL) actions. It has also served in dozens of other MDL leadership positions.
Bonsignore Trial Lawyers take our role as Local Counsel very seriously. We know first-hand how to protect and serve our clients’ best interests by effectively working within the parameters of MDL litigation.
FDA Commissioner Warning::
"It is nothing short of a public health crisis when you see a substantial increase of avoidable overdose and death related to two widely used drug classes being taken together"
