The price of dealing with the increase in overdose deaths is just one line in an ever-expanding list of costs associated with the US opioid epidemic—costs affecting public health, law enforcement, public employment, and local government budgets. With insufficient financial assistance coming from federal sources, could the new wave of related litigation be the answer to the epidemic?

While the media and public focus on the criminal implications of designer drug abuse, PBI offers a view tailored to the civil litigator.
