Throughout the summer the Class Action Lawsuit went through superior court hearings in Ontario, Nova Scotia, Quebec and Saskatchewan to determine whether to approve the proposed Settlement, as required for it to become final. Court approval has been granted in Ontario, Nova Scotia, and Quebec and only a pending decision from Saskatchewan is outstanding. Once that decision is released, this posting will be updated.

WE’RE HOLDING THEM 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. Consequently, we are taking action to make things right and have filed a class action lawsuit to hold them accountable for the damage that they have caused and help Canadian families across the country. After earning more than 31 billion off the sales of OxyContin, it is time for compensation to Canadians who have suffered damages. Higgerty Law is prosecuting the manufacturers of this drug as the Class Co-Counsel.
