The Opioid Epidemic: Is Your City Entitled To Compensation?

Read Now

Has opioid addiction drained your community of precious financial resources? Is your town lacking the funding needed to deal with the effects of the opioid epidemic?

Your city, town or local municipality may be entitled to compensation for its losses due to the opioid crisis. Learn how in our guide, How To Fund The War Against Opioid Addiction In Your Community.

At the Cleveland, Ohio, law firm of Kelley & Ferraro, LLP, our trial lawyers are helping counties, cities, towns and other local municipalities pursue compensation for damages incurred in the opioid epidemic.

Who is to blame for the opioid crisis?

Opioid manufacturers, distributors and retailers are operating a multibillion-dollar industry at the expense of the American public. For decades, these companies have been underreporting the known dangers of these highly addictive painkillers, using fraudulent and deceptive marketing practices to boost sales.

As a result, opioid overdoses have become the leading cause of death for people under the age of 55 in Ohio. Community entities are incurring ever-rising expenses for emergency services, medical care and criminal prosecution as they treat those with addictions and try to slow the numbers of fatalities.

Join with other government entities in the fight against pharmaceutical companies that are responsible for this national public health emergency.

More than 400 lawsuits are already pending with the U.S. District Court in Cleveland. By banding together in a multidistrict litigation (MDL) process, communities across the nation are taking on the drug industry as a united front.
