Vicodin, which is generically known as hydrocodone, is one of the most common prescription pain medications ingested in the United States. The two acitive ingredients of Vicodin are both painkillers: hydrocodone and acetaminophen. Vicodin is also one of the most commonly abused prescription drugs int the US because it is an opiate.
Most of the risk of Vicodin arises from the presence of acetaminophen, which can cause serious liver damage, especially when taken in high dosages or combined with alcohol. However, the opiate aspect of the drug can lead to serious addiction in patients as well.
In effect, acetaminophen can cause liver damage by causing Paracetamol hepatotoxicity, which is the leading cause of liver failure in the United States.
If you or a loved one has had any liver damage as a result of taking Vicodin or any other Acetaminophen drug, you might be entitled to compensation. We, at the Law Offices of Gregory Krasovsky, believe that patients injured while in search of treatment are rightly entitled to extract just recompense from the wrongdoers.
