OxyContin Class Action

Class action lawyers have reached a proposed Canada-wide settlement with the manufacturers of OxyContin® and OxyNEO®, to provide financial compensation options to individuals who have used these prescription drugs (OxyContin® tablets and/or OxyNEO® tablets) and meet certain criteria to qualify for compensation.

If the settlement is approved by the courts, the Oxycontin individual “Claim Form” will not be available until late 2019 at the earliest, and must be signed by you, in order to seek compensation.  There is currently no Claim Form process and no steps to be taken by class members wishing to apply for individual compensation.

The OxyNEO / OxyContin class action settlement cannot take effect unless approved by the Canadian Courts.  If this Canada-wide settlement is approved by the Courts, individuals who fall within the following “Class” definition, may be eligible to apply for individual compensation from the settlement fund:

  • (i) All persons including their estates, who at any time between January 1, 1996 and February 28, 2017 inclusive were prescribed and ingested OxyContin® tablets and/or OxyNEO® tablets in Canada; or
  • (ii) All persons who by virtue of a family relationship to a Class Member have a derivative claim under any derivative claim statute as a result of the death or personal injury of that class member.
