Texas Kratom Personal Injury and Fatality Lawyer
At the Ruhmann Law Firm, our personal injury attorneys in Texas represent individuals and families whose lives have been negatively impacted by kratom use.
Kratom, listed by the National Institute on Drug Abuse as a highly addictive psychoactive drug, is currently sold openly in gas stations, convenience stores, and other retail outlets throughout Texas.
Because of the product’s psychoactive compounds, and the inconsistency in which they are combined, kratom is often mixed with dangerous fillers, including lead and fentanyl.
Despite the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which considers any product containing kratom contaminated and unsafe for human consumption, and its subsequent ban on the importation of kratom-containing supplements in 2014, the product is widely available throughout Texas.
Popular with teenagers, the supplement is marketed as an energy booster, mood enhancer, pain reliever, and antidote for opioid withdrawal. This is the origin of the problem, as the product is already responsible for hundreds of deaths throughout the United States.
Our Texas 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 they pursue financial compensation while getting the help they need to get this deceivingly marketed drug out of Texas stores.
Why Are Kratom Products Dangerous?
Sold in concentrated forms, including powders, capsules, and liquids, Kratom is produced using mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, two alkaloids that impact the brain like opiates would, delivering pain relief, euphoria, and sedation.
Common health problems caused by kratom have included:
- Gastrointestinal Problems
- Psychiatric Issues
- Respiratory Difficulties
- Sudden Death
Kratom products sold in Texas and throughout the U.S. lack adequate warnings and dosing instructions for safe use. In addition, they are marketed as a supplement, which leads users to believe it is safe, when studies have shown significant injuries and death have resulted from its use.
Our kratom lawsuit attorneys in Texas are here to help hold these dangerous drug manufacturers and distributors 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 915-845-4529 to discuss your case during a free consultation.
