Kratom Injury and Fatality Attorneys in Houston, Texas
At Charles J. Argento, our Houston personal injury lawyer knows there is a dangerous substance being sold at gas stations, convenience stores, and other retail outlets across Texas called Kratom.
Kratom is sold in concentrated forms, including powders, capsules, and liquids, and is marketed as an energy booster, mood enhancer, pain reliever, and antidote for opioid withdrawal. Popular with teenagers, Kratom is produced using mitragynine and 7-hydroxymitragynine, two alkaloids that impact the brain like opiates would, delivering pain relief, euphoria, and sedation.
Unfortunately, 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, and is already responsible for hundreds of deaths throughout the United States.
If the life of someone you love has been impacted by Kratom use, contact our Harris County mass torts attorneys today to learn more about your legal rights and options to pursue the drug’s manufacturer for your full financial recovery.
Why Are Kratom Products Sold Throughout Texas So Dangerous?
Kratom products sold in Texas and throughout the U.S. lack adequate warnings and dosing instructions for safe use. Because they are marketed as a supplement, users often believe they contain organic ingredients and are safe for use.
Studies have shown significant injuries and death have resulted from Kratom’s use, including:
- Respiratory Difficulties.
- Gastrointestinal Problems.
- Psychiatric Issues.
- Sudden Death.
