Unintentional Poisoning Death Prevention
Prescription pills have overtaken car crashes as the number-one cause of accidental deaths in the nation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, on average, 87 people die every day from unintentional poisoning. Another 2,277 are treated in the emergency room. 91% of those unintentional poisoning deaths are a result of a drug overdose.
When doctors, patients, and their loved ones make mistakes and are uninformed, wrongful death suits can happen. Remember these tips to prevent poisoning deaths and avoid unnecessary heartache:
The CDC also says that you should be aware of certain groups that are more likely to die from unintentional poisoning. If you are part of one of these groups, be extra vigilant about staying safe.
Don't let a simple mistake make you the subject of a wrongful death suit. Be responsible with your prescriptions.
If you lost a loved one due to the negligence of someone else, you may have a Texas wrongful death suit on your hands. Contact Austin attorney Earl Straight for a free consultation at 512-454-1331.
