Who's at Risk?

Drugs do not discriminate; they’re equally dangerous to everyone, regardless of age, sex, or ethnicity. However, there are particular health risks that that different groups of people should pay attention to more than others. 

So who is most at risk? 


Based upon your personal circumstances, there are many contributing factors that could lead you towards dangerous medication.

It is important to be aware that not all medication risks are evident from the start. Some risks come in the shape of unwanted side effects that appear over time.  Others may interact with existing health conditions and make them worse, without it being clear that a drug is causing the problem.

At every stage of life, it’s important to understand the particular health challenges you face and take steps to limit factors that might make them worse. Failure to do this can lead to serious illness and even death.

With that in mind, we’ve compiled targeted health guidance for some common groups. Learn about the specific health risks and dangerous drugs that affect your groups below:

  • Men
  • Women
  • Children
  • Students

If you fall into one of these categories and have been adversely affected by a drug or medical devices, you might be entitled to compensation.
