Injuries From Pain Medication
Often, Georgians injured at work receive prescription pain medications for their work-related injuries. Sometimes, the use of these drugs can lead to harmful side effects such as ulcers, high blood pressure, heart disease, liver disease, and even death. These side effects are referred to as “super-added injuries” in Georgia since they are tied to the original work-related injury.
No one expects to be injured at work. Even fewer people expect to be injured further by the pain medications they get to treat their work injury. The best way to ensure that these matters are attended to promptly and professionally is to obtain the legal help of a workers’ compensation lawyer. When addressing the wrongs that have been done to you, the help of legal professional could prove to be substantially beneficial in your case. This is particularly true in cases where the injury has occurred as a result of more than one disadvantageous circumstance.
