Does the Bankruptcy Affect Me?

If you (or, in the case of a (a) wrongful-death claim, the estate you represent, or (b) claim on behalf of a minor or a baby, the minor or baby that you are the parent or guardian for) believe you have been injured by Purdue, or Purdue prescription opioids, like OxyContin® or other prescription opioids produced, marketed or sold by Purdue, you can file a claim for compensation. The Bankruptcy Court has set June 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. (Prevailing Eastern Time) (the “Bar Date”) as the deadline for each person, entity, governmental unit and Native American Tribe to file Proofs of Claim for claims that arose from an action taken by the Debtors prior to September 15, 2019 (but you may file a claim for damages suffered by any person or entity both prior to and after that date).

If you (or, in the case of a (a) wrongful-death claim, the estate you represent, or (b) claim on behalf of a minor or a baby, the minor or baby that you are the parent or guardian for) believe that you have a claim against Purdue Pharma L.P., a U.S. limited partnership, its general partner, or any of its subsidiaries, including Imbrium Therapeutics L.P., Adlon Therapeutics L.P., Greenfield BioVentures L.P., Avrio Health L.P., Rhodes Technologies, and Rhodes Pharmaceuticals L.P., that arose before September 15, 2019, and that has not been paid or otherwise compensated, you may file a Proof of Claim. To be considered timely, a Proof of Claim must be filed so as to actually be received by June 30, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. (Prevailing Eastern Time). If you fail to do so, your claim may be barred, and you may not receive any distribution.

You may file a Proof of Claim even if a settlement is contemplated in the Purdue bankruptcy so that your claim can be considered as part of any settlement.

All Personal Injury Claimant Proof of Claim Forms and any supporting documentation submitted with those forms will remain highly confidential and will not be made available to the public. All other Proof of Claim Forms—Governmental Opioid Claimant Proof of Claim Forms, General Opioid Claimant Proof of Claim Forms, and Non-Opioid Claimant Proof of Claim Forms—are NOT confidential and will be made publicly available on the case website in their entirety.

We cannot provide advice as to whether you may have a claim. If you require further assistance, you may wish to contact your own personal legal counsel. If you believe that you have a claim, you can find instructions on how to file a Proof of Claim here.

If you do not believe you (or any estate you represent or any minor that you are the parent or guardian for) have a claim against Purdue Pharma L.P., a U.S. limited partnership, its general partner or any of its subsidiaries, including Imbrium Therapeutics L.P., Adlon Therapeutics L.P., Greenfield BioVentures L.P., Avrio Health L.P., Rhodes Technologies and Rhodes Pharmaceuticals L.P., you do not need to do anything in response to any notice you may receive nor do you need to file a Proof of Claim Form.

Purdue Pharma (Canada), Purdue Frederick Inc. (Canada) and Purdue Pharma Inc. (Canada) (collectively, “Purdue Canada”) are not Debtors and are not subject to this bankruptcy proceeding. If you have a claim only against Purdue Canada, you are not required to file or submit a Proof of Claim Form in this bankruptcy proceeding. Certain claims against Purdue Canada remain subject to an existing Canadian settlement approval process.
