Your Company May Very Well Face Opioid-Related Liabilities, Even If You Don’t Sell or Distribute the Painkillers

Veteran Journalist Dennis Kneale on the Massive Torts Facing American Business

[Listen and Profit Now™]

When Dennis Kneale publishes a scoop, smart business people sit up and pay attention.

Dennis’s blue-chip media credentials include influential positions at Fox Business, CNBC, Forbes, and The Wall Street Journal.

Writing earlier this month for the prestigious Op-Ed page of The Wall Street Journal, Dennis issued a warning that when it comes to product liability, the nationwide Opioid Crisis could very well dwarf the sum total of all cancer claims against Big Tobacco .

And it’s not just the giant Fortune 500 companies whose behinds are on the line. Even small businesses that simply provide health insurance might be libel if their employees get addicted to Opioids – or worse, overdose on them.

Dennis Kneale joins host and reputation coach Dean Rotbart with a clear message for listeners: If you’re in business and you’re not already closely monitoring the Opioid crisis, you need to be.
