As the opioid crisis continues to ravage communities across the United States, local, state, and federal government attorneys have begun to focus on the role of the pharmaceutical industry in the creation of this epidemic.
The industry currently faces hundreds of lawsuits from governments and plaintiffs’ firms who want pharmaceutical companies, drug distributors, and drug retailers to help bear some of the financial burden that has been inflicted upon communities as a result of this epidemic.
DecisionQuest, the nation’s leading and most scientifically rigorous jury research firm, recently conducted a national poll of 1,200 potential jurors in order to gain insight into the likely reaction of juries to this upcoming wave of litigation. In addition, DecisionQuest conducted an on-line focus group specifically in order to gain further knowledge of the motivations and beliefs underlying the data.
In this on-demand one-hour webinar, Jeffrey N. Herman, Esq., Executive Vice President at DecisionQuest and head of the Boston research team, will share his insights from his practice as a jury consultant for over 30 years as well as walk the audience through DecisionQuest’s findings regarding jurors’ views of the opioid epidemic and their opinions as to the causes of and the responsibility for this ongoing crisis.
