As the opioid epidemic reaches a state of crisis in the United States, we have chosen Chicago as the epicenter for our practice, as we right the wrongs for families affected by drug overdoses,” said Lawyer Jim Magazine.
CHICAGO (PRWEB) March 21, 2019
Renowned personal injury trial attorneys John Larson and James Magazine today announce the opening of their Chicago-based firm, Larson-Magazine, to specialize in helping families of people who died from opioid overdoses.
Opioid attorneys Larson and Magazine review cases where the doctor or pharmacist deviated from the medical standard of care to hold them legally accountable for the addiction and wrongful death.
“As the opioid epidemic reaches a state of crisis in the United States, we have chosen Chicago as the epicenter for our practice, as we right the wrongs for families affected by drug overdoses,” said Magazine. “Our mission is to help as many families as we can. No one should have to deal with the loss of their loved ones from negligence.”
According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 700,000 people died from a drug overdose from 1999 to 2017. On average, 130 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.
Larson-Magazine focuses on litigating these specialized cases. The CDC estimates:
- Around 68% of the more than 70,200 drug overdose deaths in 2017 involved an opioid.
- In 2017, the number of overdose deaths involving opioids (including prescription opioids and illegal opioids like heroin and illicitly manufactured fentanyl) was 6 times higher than in 1999.
Bringing over 40 years of business and legal experience to the table, Larson and Magazine have found success by never turning down a challenge. Larson’s original Chicago-area based law firm was founded with a simple belief: “Every case is winnable.”
“Jim and I are confident we can bring justice to the families who have lost loved ones from being prescribed prescription painkillers that led to these wrongful deaths,” Larson said. “We are committed to making sure these families are being served so that someone is held accountable for the deaths of their loved ones.”
