“In my entire legal career, I have worked on no other matter which has such far-reaching societal impacts as the babies and children resulting from the nation’s opioid epidemic,” said Attorney Creadore.
The class action lawsuit is filed on behalf of all children afflicted with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) born in New York because their mothers consumed opioids during pregnancy. NAS is a clinical diagnosis and a consequence of the abrupt discontinuation of chronic fetal exposure to substances that were used or abused by the mother during pregnancy.
