What Makes a Drug Dangerous?

When it comes to medications, there are several factors that can make them dangerous. In some cases, a drug may be inherently dangerous due to its chemical makeup. In others, a drug may be safe when used as directed but become dangerous or deadly when misused or used in conjunction with other drugs.

For example, opioids are a class of drugs that are used to manage pain. They are generally safe when used for short periods of time under the guidance of a doctor. However, they can become highly addictive, and many people who use them for longer periods of time or in higher doses than recommended develop an addiction.

Similarly, many drugs can be dangerous when used in conjunction with other medications. For example, mixing certain blood thinners with certain over-the-counter pain relievers can cause internal bleeding, which can be deadly. In some cases, drugs are dangerous due to a manufacturing or design defect. For example, if a drug was contaminated with a dangerous substance or if the label did not include adequate warnings about potential side effects, the manufacturer could be held liable for any harm that resulted.

Finally, a drug may be dangerous if it is prescribed to someone for whom it is contraindicated. For example, many drugs are not safe for use during pregnancy or in children, and doctors should take this into account when prescribing medications. If a doctor prescribes a medication to a patient who should not have been given it, they could be held liable for any harm that results.

How to Prove a Dangerous Drug Claim

Proving a dangerous drug claim can be challenging. In order to be successful, you must be able to prove that the drug manufacturer or another at-fault party acted negligently and that this negligence caused you to suffer harm.

When you turn to us for help with your dangerous drug claim, you can count on our team to:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation into the drug manufacturer, the drug itself, and your claim
  • Work with trusted medical professionals and experts to understand the full extent of your injuries and how they will impact your life

  • Handle all the paperwork and legal details of your case so you can focus on what matters most—recovering from your injuries
