In need of an Indian Land Kratom Injuries & Fatalities Attorney?
At the David W. Martin Law Group, our Indian Land personal injury attorneys are representing individuals and families throughout South Carolina whose lives have been negatively impacted by kratom use.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse lists Kratom (Mitragyna Speciosa) as a highly addictive psychoactive drug currently sold openly in gas stations, convenience stores, and other retail outlets throughout South Carolina
Popular with teenagers, the supplement is widely sold as an energy booster, mood enhancer, pain reliever, and antidote for opioid withdrawal. Unfortunately, these benefits may be more deceiving than practical. The reality is, safety problems related to its use are alarming, as the product is already responsible for hundreds of deaths and counting in the United States.
Our Lancaster County kratom injury and fatality attorneys are seeking justice for those who have been hurt, and family members who have lost loved ones to the product’s use, so our clients can seek justice and stop these tragedies going forward.
Why Are Kratom Products Dangerous?
Kratom is produced, marketed, and sold in multiple, concentrated forms, including powders, capsules, and liquids. The product contains two alkaloids — mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine — that impact the brain like opiates would, delivering pain relief, euphoria, and sedation.
Because of the psychoactive compounds, and the inconsistency in which they are combined, kratom’s composition is often supplemented by fillers ranging from lead to fentanyl. The irregular potency of the easily accessed products has led to serious adverse health effects in users throughout South Carolina.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) banned the import of kratom-containing supplements in 2014, and considers any product containing kratom adulterated, which means it is contaminated and unsafe for human consumption.
Common health problems caused by kratom have included:
- Psychiatric Issues
- Gastrointestinal Problems
- Respiratory Difficulties
- Sudden Death
Most kratom products currently sold in the United States lack adequate warnings and dosing instructions for safe use, so users simply do not understand how the widely accessible “supplement” could cause such severe or even fatal harm.
Our kratom lawsuit attorneys in South Carolina must ensure that those who facilitate the manufacture, importation, distribution, and sale of this dangerous drug are held liable for the increasingly devastating fallout from its use.
If you have had a serious adverse health event caused by kratom, or have lost a loved one to its use, call us at (803) 548-2468 to discuss your case.
