Prescription Drugs Overdose Claims – Who is Liable?

More and more people than ever are reliant on prescription medication to deal with general health problems as well as manage long-term illnesses. High-strength painkillers are extremely popular when it comes to long-term treatment of a wide range of aches and pains, and it is incredibly easy to overdose on these substances – particularly if you aren’t used to taking regular medication.

In some cases, painkillers can prove ineffective at treating chronic pains. As a result, it is common for users to take more than they should and accidentally overdose without resolving the pain. In these cases, there may be a claim against the healthcare specialist for prescribing the wrong kind of painkillers or providing treatment which isn’t strong enough to effectively remove the pain without overdosing.

If the person taking the drug had a history of abuse problems, either with that drug or with other substances, then there may be a case that the doctor was negligent. It is up to the healthcare practitioner to notice a pattern of abuse to prevent wrongful deaths from occurring due to a prescription drugs overdose.

Am I Eligible for Prescription Drugs Overdose Claims?

If you, or a loved one, have suffered overdose symptoms relating to prescription drugs, then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. In the most extreme conditions, these symptoms could even result in death – in which case, the medical negligence claim is more likely to be a wrongful death claim. In this instance, only the closest living relative to the deceased will be able to make the claim.

If you’ve suffered from an overdose of drugs prescribed to you by a doctor or other healthcare specialist, then you’ll make your claim directly against them or their hospital. As there are so many prescribed drugs available, in a wide range of strengths and amounts, there is a wide range of symptoms which can impact your health.

In many cases, your own health, youth and even the amount that you’ve eaten that day can play a major role in the seriousness of the overdose. This makes it even more difficult to judge yourself whether you’re experiencing an overdose – especially as some medications have side effects.

Just some of the most common symptoms can include:

  • Nausea and Vomiting.
  • Drowsiness and Confusion.
  • Breathing Difficulties.
  • Disturbed Sleep.
  • Dizziness and Loss of Balance.

If you’ve experienced any of these symptoms after taking prescription medication, especially if they are a recurring issue, then prescription drugs overdose claims could be the perfect way for you to get the compensation you deserve.
