What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Drug Overdosing

Prescription drug overdosing is typically not thought of as an accidental incident. Most overdose incidents in adults result from intentional efforts to cause self-inflicted harm and are indicative of underlying mental health issues. However, sometimes drug overdoses may be caused by uncontrollable external factors, such as a pharmacy error. When this happens, the victim or the victim’s family may have a legal right to claim damages for the harm done.

Causes of Drug Overdoses

There are a number of causes of accidental drug overdosing. Many times, this accident occurs as a result of another party’s negligence. Drug overdosing in children may arise as a result of a parent or supervisor’s failure to adequately watch the child or securely put medications away and out of reach. Accidental drug overdosing in an adult may occur due to a pharmacy error. If the bottle is mislabeled or the patient is given incorrect dosage instructions, then he or she may become an overdose victim.
