As a trusted lawyer participating in the TN Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome lawsuit, I am offering a free legal consultation to any family affected by NAS.
Our great state of TN is plagued by a terrifying crisis: Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, or NAS, is a severe type of drug withdrawal that occurs in newborns exposed to addictive opiate drugs while in the womb.
As America’s opioid crisis continues to spread, the number of babies born with NAS is increasing at an alarming rate. In fact, the number of women in the U.S. with an opioid addiction at the time of delivery quadrupled between 1999 and 2013. And there is no sign of it slowing down.
But amidst the legal battles between the states and the Big Pharma companies that fueled the opioid crisis, the most vulnerable victims are being forgotten: babies. This is why I have become one of the most trusted lawyers participating in the TN Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome lawsuit. To stand up for the children and families of Memphis, Nashville, and Mid-South Tennessee.
Every 15 minutes, a child is born with NAS.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, a baby is born with NAS every 15 minutes. These babies endure a painful start to life, including:
- Crying excessively
- Shaking and trembling
- Slow weight gain
- Blotchy skin
- And more
The long-term symptoms of NAS can be just as devastating. They include:
- Birth defects
- Respiratory complications
- Chronic stress
- Behavioral and development problems
- Hearing disabilities
- Language delays
- Psychiatric illness
- And more
The cost to treat a child’s initial withdrawal symptoms can balloon up to $50,000 or more. And long-term care can far surpass that burden. This is why my firm, Darrell Castle & Associates, PLLC, is working hard to get financial compensation for families like yours. You shouldn’t be responsible for the cost of the lifelong care associated with NAS when Big Pharma is to blame.
