Ohio Court Recognizes Coverage for Opioid Claims


Widespread addiction to opioid medications has led to a national health crisis. Governmental entities, such as states, cities, and counties, have incurred enormous costs in dealing with this crisis, including costs for medical response, intervention, and treatment.

Huge settlements and verdicts have resulted from governmental lawsuits over these claims, some in the hundreds of millions or billions of dollars.
