Tragic outcomes of mismanaged pain medication

Posted on by

I found the comments by David DePaolo on an injured worker’s recent fentanyl overdose very interesting and thought provoking. A Pennsylvania court found the overdose compensable.

I recently recovered for the widow of a man who died from the side effects of long term pain medication usage. This type of tragic death should be covered by workers’ compensation and I applaud the Pennsylvania court for the reported decision. All the participants in the workers’ compensation system need to reflect on the role of long term drug use. This article focuses your attention.

Five attorneys represent plaintiffs in workers’ compensation, personal injury, employment and Social Security disability claims.
