This week, opioid victims can begin filing claims against the maker of OxyContin.
A federal judge overseeing the bankruptcy case of Purdue Pharma set a deadline of June 30th to file claims.
There’s no guarantee that people who became addicted to opioids or their families would receive money, or how much they would receive.
The judge noted that claims would only be open to people who believe they were harmed by Purdue.
The company plans to spend nearly $24 million to advertise the decline.
