Fentanyl is a highly-addictive prescription opioid pain medication. Anyone who uses it continuously for more than a few days will develop a tolerance, in which their body requires a higher dose to experience the same effects. This can quickly get out of control, leading to addiction.
A person who uses Fentanyl exactly as instructed by their doctor, and under that doctor’s supervision, is less likely to become addicted. Even so, they can still accidentally overdose — especially if they are using other opioids or medications that could slow down breathing.
Fentanyl Overdose Symptoms
The signs and symptoms of a fentanyl overdose may include:
- Extreme sleepiness
- Slow or stopped breathing
- Slow, shallow breathing or stopped breathing
- Smaller pupils (black circles in the middle of the eyes)
- Difficulty swallowing
- Decreased urge to breathe
What is the problem?
The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a Fentanyl class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for victims of opioid injuries — specifically, people who accidentally overdosed on prescription Fentanyl medications.
About Class Actions
In 2016, over 42,000 Americans overdosed on opioid medications, and many of these deaths were due to accidental overdoses. In response, hundreds of lawsuits have been filed — but not as part of a class action. Instead, they are centralized in one federal court in Ohio.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits on behalf of individuals and the families of individuals who were injured or died as a result of an accidental overdose Fentanyl. We specialize in holding pharmaceutical companies accountable by seeking compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, rehab, wrongful death, and more.
