Unfortunately, it seems drug overdoses are on the rise, especially illegal drugs such as “Molly". Often, these illegal party drugs leave students fighting for their life with serious injuries or even death. While it’s never a good idea to take these illegal drugs, sometimes there is liability on part of the school, concert venue or other third party that had a responsibility to keep your child safe.
It's Possible for Colleges, Universities & Club Venues to Be Liable for Drug Overdose Injuries
If there is a condition that university or college knew about or should have known about, you may have a case against them. Same goes for clubs, rave and concert venues. If they knew there was an ongoing problem of illegal drugs being sold and used at their premise and did not rectify the problem you may have a case. In some cases, there may be other or additional parties at fault. For example, if a drug was slipped into your drink at a club or rave party and the third party security firm failed to catch it, you might have a case against the security company hired to watch over the patrons of venue and protect them from these dangerous drugs.
