Let’s compare and contrast the differences between Criminal and Civil Court, and how both play important roles for crime victims. Victims don’t have to choose to go through one or the other, the victims can do both. Both systems serve different purposes and functions, and so a victim has a better chance of being made whole by entering both, if possible.
Drug manufacturers and Doctors are the two main targets in the legal fight against opioid abuse. Drug manufacturers of Fentanyl, hydrocodone, codeine, and numerous other drugs have contributed the addiction problem in our country. Governments have started to filing lawsuits against some of the manufacturers and sellers of these drugs because of their wrongful marketing and distribution practices. Families with loved ones who’ve died because from opioid overdoses can participate in lawsuits against the responsible manufacturers if their warnings were inadequate or if they’ve used illegal marketing strategies to dump drugs into mainstream society.
