IF YOU WERE PRESCRIBED SUBSYS BETWEEN MARCH 2012 AND DECEMBER 2016, PLEASE CALL US NOW. YOU MAY HAVE A CASE AGAINST THE MANUFACTURERS OF SUBSYS AND YOU MAY BE ENTITLED TO COMPENSATION.
Subsys is a medication that is 100 times more potent than morphine. It is a fentanyl based opioid spray intended to treat cancer patients suffering from intense episodes of breakthrough cancer pain. Subsys should never be prescribed to patients who do not have cancer.
Our law firm has already filed one lawsuit against the manufacturers of Subsys and we are investigating additional suits.
The drug’s manufacturer, Insys Therapeutics, Inc., is also being investigated by the FBI and the Department of Justice. If you have contacted the FBI, or been contacted by them, about Subsys, CALL US TODAY at 410-539-6633.
On December 8, 2016 the Department of Justice arrested six of Insys’ top former corporate executives, including Insys’ former CEO and President, on charges and allegations that they led a nationwide conspiracy to bribe doctors to unnecessarily prescribe Subsys to patients who did not have cancer. According to the DOJ’s charges, Insys may have also tricked insurance companies into paying for Subsys by claiming that patients had cancer when, in fact, they did not. According to the charges, doctors who participated in the scheme were paid large amounts of money, some earning more than one hundred thousand dollars.
Profits should never be placed over patient safety. The inappropriate use of Subsys can have serious consequences on individuals and families, including addiction, hospitalization, and death. If you or someone you love has been prescribed Subsys, CALL US NOW at 410-539-6633.
Aaron L. Moore, a pharmacist-attorney, and the law firm of Bekman, Marder and Adkins filed one of the first lawsuits in the country against Insys. We are ready to help you and your family obtain the compensation you may be entitled to. Call us now at 410-539-6633
