Workers' Comp Attorney in Atlanta
Injuries from Pain Medication
Often, Georgians injured at work receive prescription pain medications for their
work-related injuries.Sometimes, the use of these drugs can lead to harmful side effects. These side effects are also work-related injuries which are referred to in Georgia as "super-added injuries."
No one expects to be injured at work. Even fewer people expect to be injured further by the medical physicians or pain medications that they are prescribed to treat their work injury. Physical pain and damages that occur at the workplace can be addressed through a workers' compensation claim. The same is true for injuries and illnesses that occur after the fact; those that are the result of wrongfully prescribed medications or negligence on behalf of you doctors. The best way to ensure that these matters are attended to promptly and professionally is to obtain the legal help of a workers' compensation lawyer. When addressing the wrongs that have been done to you, the help of legal professional could prove to be substantially beneficial in your case. This is particularly true in cases where the injury has occurred as a result of more than one disadvantageous circumstance.
Atlanta Pain Medication Lawyer
An Atlanta work injury lawyer at McAleer Law can advise you on the medical-legal issues related to the use of pain medication. Many prescription medications have harmful side effects, such as ulcers, high blood pressure, and what has been in the news more recently, heart and liver issues related to the use of the pain medications Vioxx and Davron and Darvocet. Davron and Darvocet, despite being on the market for more than 50 years, was taken off the market in 2010 by the FDA because new studies showed that this drug does more harm, including causing death, than good.
If you are having health issues caused by Darvocet or Davron, our team of Atlanta personal injury attorneys are also here to advise you on whether you may have a
claim against the drug manufacturer.
