Opioid addiction has become an epidemic in the United States. Unlike other drug problems that our country has faced in the past, the driving force behind opioid dependence is not the spread of criminal networks, but rather the misleading advertising campaigns funded by the pharmaceutical companies that are peddling these life-ruining drugs.
At Laborde Earles Law Firm, we are tired of seeing big pharmaceutical companies profit from the destruction of countless lives and families. We are tired of seeing our jails overrun by victims of opioid addiction who are not criminals by nature. We are tired of witnessing the immense and unwarranted strain that opioids have placed on our justice system. We are tired of seeing public funds exhausted in the battle against the opioid epidemic.
To send a message and hold big pharma accountable for the tragedies they have contributed to through their misleading advertising, we have decided to represent Louisiana sheriffs in a lawsuit against several pharmaceutical companies.
The lawsuit won’t cost taxpayers anything.
If the lawsuit is successful, and we whole-heartedly believe it will be, the payout will be used for treatment programs.
