What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing an class action lawsuit for victims of opioid injuries. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who accidentally overdosed on opioids after being prescribed medications.

About Class Actions

Dozens of states have filed class action lawsuits against Purdue Pharma and other opioid drug-makers, seeking compensation for the high cost of dealing with the opioid crisis — but the lawsuits are not seeking compensation for individual victims who overdosed or died.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Our lawyers are currently filing individual lawsuits for people who accidentally overdosed on prescription opioid medications. We are focusing our efforts on helping people who were injured or died. We hold drug-makers accountable by seeking compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, rehabilitation, wrongful death, and more.
