Closed Settlement Statement:
According to court documents, the claim submission deadline has passed. Please contact the claims administrator if you have any questions.

Case Summary:

This is for those seeking compensation Purdue Pharma, LP, claiming harm from its actions or its opioids, such as OxyContin. Cases have been filed against Purdie and related companies, alleging that Purdue pushed its opioids excessively and deliberately underestimated their risks. Individuals are making claims for addiction and wrongful death, and even states have claimed harm from opioid addictions.

Purdue is currently in bankruptcy, and parties wanting compensation are not filling out the usual types of claim forms. Instead, the forms in this case will become part of the bankruptcy proceedings.

Because this is a bankruptcy proceeding and not a normal settlement, there is no settlement agreement or settlement administrator and no information on a total settlement amount, benefits to class members, or the like. Hearing dates are not currently available.

An Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors has been appointed to represent the interests of all unsecured creditors (that is, those who do not have any security or collateral securing the debts they are claiming are owed). To reach this committee, contact Kurztman Carson Consultants, the Information Agent for the Committee, at (888) 647-1738 (U.S./Canada) or (310) 751-2625 (International) or https://www.kccllc.net/purduecreditors/inquiry. You may also contact counsel to the Committee, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP, at purduecreditorinfo@akingump.com.
