The US Opioids crisis

SUMMARY
The Opioid Crisis has swept the US and has reportedly arrived in the UK. Pharmaceutical companies are alleged to have played a role in perpetuating addiction and contributing to the Crisis by aggressive marketing. This presentation is intended for insurers exposed to medicinal products risks (whether in the US, UK or elsewhere) and will examine:
• Opioid products and the background to the Crisis
• Policy responses
• Strategies to mitigate the risks
• Claimants’ allegations and manufacturers’ potential defences in the event of litigation in the UK
