Community budgets are stretched to the breaking point by the surge in addictions, overdoses and crime, which can be traced back to opioid abuse. “All these unexpected costs are crashing down on cities and leaving them scrambling to shift money around to keep things going,” said Hunter J. Shkolnik.

In recent months, Napoli Shkolnik PLLC has been retained by numerous counties to file lawsuits on their behalf against the manufacturers and distributors of opioid painkillers. New York Counties including Nassau, Niagara and Schuyler as well as the Cities of Dayton, Lorain and Parma in Ohio and the City of Manchester are among of the latest to work with Napoli Shkolnilk PLLC in their fight against the opioid epidemic.

The firm has also been retained by or is investigating claims for numerous other municipalities in West Virginia, Maine, New Hampshire, Ohio, New York, Michigan, Texas, and other states.

The claims against the manufacturers of opioid pain medications include deceptive business practices, false advertising, public nuisance, violations of social services/ Medicaid law, fraud, and unjust enrichment. The claims are largely based on the deceptive practices that the manufacturer defendants used to reach prescribers and patients.
