Overview

Vicodin® is a prescription opioid pain medication. It contains a combination of acetaminophen with hydrocodone. Acetaminophen is mild painkiller and fever-reducer. Hydrocodone is a narcotic opiate like codeine.

Vicodin Overdose

Anyone who takes Vicodin continuously for more than a few days will develop a tolerance, which means that their body needs more Vicodin to achieve the same effect. If they do not take more Vicodin, they may experience unpleasant symptoms of withdrawal. This can make it difficult or impossible to quit — and it increases the risk of overdose.

Acetaminophen Overdose

Overdosing on Vicodin is not like overdosing on other opiates. The problem is that acetaminophen is extremely toxic to the liver. Even small overdoses of acetaminophen can cause deadly liver failure.

Symptoms of Vicodin Overdose

  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Slow, shallow breathing or stopped breathing
  • Smaller pupils (black circles in the middle of the eyes)
  • Fainting
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Decreased urge to breathe
  • Coma
  • Unconsciousness
  • Death

Vicodin Lawsuits

As of January 2018, over 200 opioid lawsuits were centralized in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, where they are overseen by Judge Dan A. Polster — Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2804) — IN RE: National Prescription Opiate Litigation.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not filing a Vicodin class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits for people who suffered addiction, overdose, liver damage, or death after using prescription Vicodin.

About Class Actions

The CDC reported in 2016 that over 42,000 Americans overdosed on prescription opioid medications, and many were accidental overdoses on Vicodin. In response, hundreds of lawsuits have been filed by victims who were injured — but not as part of a class action lawsuit.

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

Our lawyers are filing individual lawsuits for people and the families of people who accidentally overdosed on Vicodin. We file lawsuits so we can hold drug-makers financially responsible for failing to warn patients about severe side effects, and selling dangerous medications.
