W.VA. reaches a settlement with drug manufacturers

West Virginia’s Attorney General (AG) Patrick Morrisey announced in a news release that a settlement has been reached in a suit against drug manufacturers.

The AG’s office has reached a $161.5 million plus settlement with drug manufacturers Teva and Allergan.

The drug manufacturers were accused of fueling the opioid epidemic in West Virginia.

The Teva and Allergan are accused of engaging in campaigns to misrepresent the risks and benefits of opioid painkillers.

The AG asserts that this settlement and others will provide significant help to those affected the most by the opioid crisis in the state.

As a part of the settlement Teva will also supply West Virginia with $27 million worth of narcan.

The cash value of the settlement is believed the highest per capita in the nation.

The monies will be distributed among cities and counties throughout the state.

The overall amount secured thus far from opioid manufacturers and related parties is a total of $296.5 million plus.
