What Makes a Medication a “Dangerous Drug”?
There are many ways a drug could become dangerous. It is important to note that most medications have some risk of side effects, but the dangers of serious injury should not outweigh the risks associated with the condition those drugs treat.
For example, an over-the-counter heartburn medication can be excessively risky if you may be susceptible to developing cancer because of it. Cancer poses a much more considerable risk than heartburn.
Other factors that may help support your dangerous drug case include:
- Other victims suffered similar injuries
- Users face the risk of serious harm
- The manufacturer was aware of the risk or should have been aware
- There are safer medications that would have worked just as effectively
- The drug is missing significant warnings
- The usage instructions included with the product are incorrect or missing
What if My Family Lost Someone after Taking a Dangerous Drug?
Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 71.002, families who lost someone because of injuries or an illness caused by a dangerous drug may be able to hold the drug company liable
Loncar Lyon Jenkins can help qualifying family members take legal action based on the state’s wrongful death code. Qualifying family members may include:

How Long Do You Have to Sue the Drug Company for Compensation?
Victims of personal injuries generally have up to two years to sue the at-fault party in Texas, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003. This means you will need to file the initial paperwork and begin your lawsuit by this deadline.
However, there are many steps we must complete first. This includes:
- Investigating what happened
- Identifying the liable party or parties
- Developing a case
- Negotiating for a settlement
- Deciding if you need to sue the drug company
In some cases, exceptions to the statute of limitations may affect how long you have to sue the pharmaceutical company. We can ensure we identify the deadlines that will apply during your free consultation.
