Many men, women, and children rely on drug medications to treat everyday ailments and serious medical conditions. When a medication is prescribed for you, your hope is that it will cause your medical condition to improve. Do you know what to do when a medication makes your condition grow worse instead of making you feel better?
According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 74.001, medical liability could allow you to collect compensation for the injuries you sustain from a dangerous drug. You could also be entitled to collect damages from a wrongful death lawsuit if someone you love passed away as the result of a dangerous drug.
You do have options for financial recovery when a dangerous drug makes your physical condition worse instead of better or costs a loved one their life. An El Paso dangerous drug lawyer may serve as your advocate and help you fight for the financial recovery you need and deserve to start getting your life back on track. Contact the client care team at Loncar Lyon Jenkins by calling 877-239-4878 today.
Dangerous Drugs Can Cause Serious Physical Harm
Drugs can pose a risk to your health in more than one way. The drug itself can have a manufacturing error or compounding error, or can be part of a government or manufacturing recall because of the harm it causes. These dangerous drugs affect many men and women each day.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) research, drugs can also pose a danger to your health when they are inaccurately prescribed along with another drug that causes a potentially dangerous interaction. According to CDC statistics, adverse drug interactions and effects are the cause of more than one million emergency room visits each year.
When you are instructed to take a drug, your goal is that it will make you feel better or improve your overall physical health. When a drug you take causes harm instead, you may be entitled to financial compensation. When you are ready to fight for the compensation you deserve, contact our legal team. We may be able to help you identify and receive compensation from the at-fault party.

Every Lawsuit Has a Time Limit That Must Be Met
Your claim for damage or harm caused by a dangerous drug has a time limit you might not know about. Called the statute of limitations, the state’s timeline determines how much time you have to file a lawsuit seeking financial compensation from the at-fault party. According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 74.251, you generally have only two years to file your lawsuit for financial recovery.
Do not allow time to run out on your claim. While you are seeking corrective medical care for yourself or someone you love, our legal team can start building a comprehensive case for the damage of a dangerous drug. Contact our client intake team when you are ready to pursue compensation. Doing so may ensure your claim is filed in a timely fashion and that you are not stuck with the financial aftermath of someone else’s mistake.
The Potential Benefits of Having a Lawyer on Your Side
Proving a drug was dangerous to your health or that it caused a preexisting medical condition to worsen could be difficult on your own. A dangerous drug also has the potential to cause the untimely death of someone you love. When that happens, you need to prove the drug was the cause of the health crisis or death. A lawyer may be able to help by:
- Locating and interviewing medical experts
- Reading and reviewing your medical records
- Providing proof of your physical health before you took the drug in question
- Providing proof of your physical health after you took the drug in question
- Proving the drug was part of a medication recall
- Proving the drug in question interacted with a drug you were already taking
You do not have to fight for compensation, prove fault, or assign financial liability on your own. The lawyer who represents your claim may be able to prove the required legal elements for you and ensure the financial value of your claim is not undervalued.
Get Compensated for a Dangerous Drug
