Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC and Keller Lenkner LLC File Eight New Class Actions Against Opioid Manufacturers and Distributors for Inflated Health Insurance Costs

PR Newswire

CHICAGO, Aug. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Consovoy McCarthy Park PLLC and Keller Lenkner LLC today filed eight new class actions against opioid manufacturers and distributors. The suits seek to recover higher insurance costs paid by individuals and businesses due to the opioid epidemic.

The law firms filed suits on behalf of plaintiffs in federal courts in Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Idaho, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Tennessee, adding to the five states—California, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and New York—where they already are litigating these issues.

The complaints charge the major opioid manufacturers and distributors with fraudulent and deceptive marketing practices, negligence in distributing opioids into the marketplace, and numerous other violations of state and federal law.

All Americans—individual consumers, small businesses, and large corporations—have borne the increased health insurance costs stemming from the opioid epidemic. When combined with the firms' other lawsuits already on file, these are the only cases that address the health insurance costs consumers and businesses have paid due to the deadliest drug crisis in American history.

Opioid companies' unlawful acts have led to billions of dollars in increased healthcare costs covered by private insurers. In each of the cases, the putative class includes all individuals and corporate entities that purchased health insurance, including individuals who paid for part of an employer-sponsored insurance plan.
