A Claimant is a person who has a personal injury claim for alleged opioid related injury and does not qualify for a NAS (neonatal abstinence syndrome) claim.
A Non-NAS PI Opioid Claim is any Opioid Claim (including Opioid Demand), for present and future claims, of any natural person for an alleged opioid-related personal injury or other similar opioid-related Claim or Cause of Action, including any opioid-related personal injury Claim. See the PI Trust Distribution Procedures (TDP) for Non-NAS PI Claims.
You can file a Non-NAS PI Claim if you can demonstrate both that:
- you received a prescription for a Mallinckrodt opioid, including any prescription for off-label use; and
- you were injured from the Mallinckrodt opioid use.
