Court Documents

If you were prescribed and used OxyContin, you may be eligible for participation in this Canadian Class Action Lawsuit. Higgerty Law is still receiving registration requests for class action members.

THEY ARE BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE

OxyContin abuse has greatly damaged the lives of thousands of people in Canada. Families have been separated and lives have been lost because of the devastating effects from this dangerous drug. In fact, OxyContin’s manufacturer faced criminal charges in the U.S. and pleaded guilty in 2007, after claiming that this drug was less likely to cause addiction. After earning more than 31 billion off the sales of OxyContin, it is time for compensation to Canadians who have suffered damages.
