Seeking Restitution from Ecstasy Injuries and Deaths?
There’s a new threat out there. In colleges, dance floors, and homes across the country, the drug Ecstasy offers highs for party goers who are often already under the influence. The drug, made up of MDMA, or methylenedioxymethamphetamine offers a unique experience for users that often brings them out of reality.
The personal injury lawyers at Ehline Law Firm want you to know that sometimes victims of misuse of this illegal drug can sue the people or person who drugged them. Herein, we discuss your options as an Ecstasy, injury victim.
The Many Risks of Ecstasy Use
There are many risks involved with using this drug and should be avoided as much as possible. However, parents have to deal with the nightmare of their children having taken the drug and suffering severe injury or death. It is not uncommon for users to become severely dehydrated, even to the point of mortality.
As reported out of the Albuquerque Journal, a man that sold the drug to a 14-year-old girl was convicted and sentenced to up to three years in prison.
Preventing Future Tragedies
Many parents and loved ones are demanding justice across the country and refuse to allow another’s reckless behavior hurt their children. Similarly, beyond prison time, many dealers are being challenged in civil court by parents that lost a loved one. There are many issues involved in the production and distribution of such drugs, including purity issues, dehydration, and potency. All could lead to injury or death, and these parents are looking to avoid similar situations for other families.
