WHY YOU NEED A TEXAS DRUG INJURY LAWYER
Nearly 2 million Americans have painkiller substance use disorders, and more than 100 die daily from opioid drugs. Many of these overdoses are from opioid medicine and other dangerous prescribed drugs.
Juries have been finding more and more pharmaceutical companies and health care systems largely responsible for the opioid and prescription drug epidemic in America. They are prescribing powerful drugs in large doses that many users cannot handle. These same health care providers and pharmaceutical manufacturers are typically well-funded and well-insured entities that can allow a case to drag on for years in litigation without feeling your same financial and emotional strain. They will regularly defend against the claim and minimize the seriousness of your condition in an effort to discredit you and reduce the compensation you deserve.
But that shouldn’t stop you from calling Morgan if you believe you have a claim. Morgan takes great pride in fighting for the rights of Texans who became injured or died in the throes of addiction or use of prescription drugs. He leaves no stone unturned when seeking compensation for past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and psychological distress.
People who take prescription and opioid painkillers for too long and in doses too large are more at risk of addiction and more likely to die of drug poisoning. These deaths are preventable, but when you or your loved ones are impacted, you need to weigh your legal options. With Morgan in your corner, you will have access to the top medical experts and one of Texas’ most skilled drug injury lawyers to help you recover a substantial verdict or settlement.
