Las Vegas, Arizona And Utah Pain Medication Overdose And Addiction Lawyers
Many individuals seek medical treatment for pain, and doctors often prescribe strong painkillers because they cannot find or otherwise treat the source of the individual’s pain. Prescription pain medications are sometimes addictive, and while doctors and other health care providers caution taking the medication only as prescribed, they do not always supervise usage carefully. Overdose and addiction occur all too often and can lead to catastrophic injury, addiction and death.
Overdosing on pain medication does not necessarily mean that an individual took more pills than recommended. Pain medications may interact with other medications that an individual is taking. Without careful monitoring by a medical professional, overdose may occur even when taking the dose prescribed by a doctor or other health care provider.
