Big Pharma accused of driving up health costs with opioid scourge

Travis Lenkner, a lawyer who is representing Green-Kuchta, said his firm, Keller Lenkner, has filed similar class action lawsuits in 15 other states. They represent a new front against the industry because they seek to recover damages paid by private people as opposed to the lawsuits brought by governments on behalf of the taxpayers.

“Most of the litigation that exists right now is brought on behalf of the taxpayers who paid more in taxes because there were public health care and public safety costs associated with the opioid health epidemic,” Lenkner said.
