Fighting for Opioid Treatment and Education Funds in Palm Beach County

At the Ferraro Law Firm, our legal team is weighing in on the pharmaceutical companies’ role in fostering the explosive and ever-growing opioid crisis in Palm Beach County. In a recent statement to the press, Attorney Janpaul Portal said, “The[se pharmaceutical companies] are all responsible because each one of them played a significant role,” going on to explain that, “Each one of them chose to look the other way while earning billions of dollars at the cost of Palm Beach County’s taxpayers.”

Our firm has a strong team of tough and experienced litigators who are committed to furthering the county’s interests with zeal, tenacity, skill, and positive solutions. We are also committed to winning this case on behalf of all Palm Beach County taxpayers, who are directly (and negatively) affected by the consequences of the opioid crisis, which include increased homelessness, healthcare needs, foster care, unemployment and disability benefits and more.

Our firm is confident that this victory will help the county recover economic damages caused by the named pharmaceutical companies. These funds will then go toward education about opioids and treatment for people suffering from addiction and opioid abuse. It will also go toward resources and tools for medical professionals and first responders who are working with opioid-addicted citizens day in and day out.

We are prepared to take up the cause of other Florida municipalities seeking to right the wrongs committed by big pharmaceutical companies. Call (888) 554-2030 to speak to a Florida opioid attorney and trial lawyer today.
