Accidental Opiate Intoxication Suit – Nathan Hughes

Accidental Opiate Intoxication Suit

Burger Law recently filed a wrongful death suit for the family of Nathan Hughes. Nathan tragically passed away after overdosing on Opiates. He became addicted to Opiates after being wrongfully prescribed them for years, for treatment of his chronic pain.

Burger Law is seeking compensation for Nathan’s family and is suing his former physician Doctor Creighton, his former practice, and numerous drug companies including: Mallinckrodt, KVK-Tech, Impax Laboratories, Actavis Generics, Amneal Pharmaceuticals, West-Ward Pharmaceuticals, and Par Pharmaceuticals. Burger Law is also alleging class allegations, and hopes to represent the families of other victims wrongfully treated by these Opioid companies and prescribers.
