Let Our Lawyers Fight for You When Synthetic Marijuana / Cannabinoids Endanger Your Life

Synthetic marijuana/cannabinoids, are dangerous man-made chemicals that are labeled as "not for human consumption" and "potpourri/herbal incenses" in order to mask their intended purpose as drugs, and avoid Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory oversight of the manufacturing process. Synthetic marijuana/cannabinoid use can result in side effects such as severe agitation/anxiety, nausea, vomiting, tremors/seizures, extreme paranoia, hallucinations/delusions, violent behavior, suicidal thoughts/actions and death.

Before The Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 made synthetic marijuana/cannabinoids illegal, people, especially teenagers, could legally buy these products from gas stations, convenience stores, smoke shops, and local malls. Unfortunately, loopholes in The Synthetic Drug Abuse Prevention Act of 2012, as well as state laws, have allowed manufactures to stay one step ahead of the law.

Thousands of people, especially teenagers, have been deceived by synthetic marijuana/cannabinoids products' colorful names, such as "K2", "Spice", "Scooby Snax," and, as a result, suffered serious injuries and even death. These tragic and painful experiences are even more difficult knowing that these serious injuries and deaths could have been avoided. And while monetary compensation cannot make up for these injuries, holding the responsible party accountable can give victims some peace of mind and lead to changes that will hopefully prevent future tragedies.

At the Collins Law Firm in Naperville, we are dedicated to holding the manufacturers and sellers of these dangerously deceptive products accountable for their actions.

In many cases, crucial evidence can be lost if not quickly preserved. We recognize this important issue and are ready to quickly mobilize to preserve evidence. We know how to thoroughly investigate all the factors that led to serious injuries and/or wrongful death of a family member. We will review any police reports that are available, consult with experts, and interview witnesses and other victims. We will leave no stone unturned in trying to recover compensation on your behalf.

Contact our law firm today if you or a family member is suffering due to toxic chemical exposure, whether it is from the environment or synthetic marijuana/cannabinoids. We take all of our personal injury cases on a contingency basis, meaning you will not owe us anything unless we recover compensation for you. You have nothing to lose by calling us to schedule a free consultation.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
Shawn Collins is a very talented lawyer, as are all the attorneys on his team. I've known and worked with Shawn for more that 30 years. Not only is he a top notch technical litigator but his communication skills are second to none. If anyone I know is ever in need of an attorney, Shawn is my very first recommendation. He gives very solid advice that goes beyond the law. He is someone you can trust to tell you the truth so you are not lead astray in the complex legal world. You really can't find a better advocate. E.M.
★★★★★
We were incredibly satisfied with our experience with The Collins Law Firm. We worked closely with Ed Manzke and found that he had a personal touch and truly got to know us in addition to being knowledgeable and effective in his field. The caring and individual attitude helped us tremendously throughout the entire process and we always felt like our case was in safe hands. We would highly recommend The Collins Law Firm for both its stellar work and dedicated employees. M.A.
★★★★★
My father recommended The Collins Law Firm to me after watching Shawn Collins and Ed Manzke at trial representing Lisle residents against Lockformer. For years, he told us courtroom tales about Shawn and Ed, citing their incredible skill as trial lawyers and how they put the huge Lockformer legal team to shame. So when my son was the victim of a wrongful death, they were my first and only choice. I can't say enough to truly express how grateful I am to The Collin's Law Firm for all that they did for me and my family. This amazing team advocated for me in my darkest moments, surpassing my expectations in every way. I will be forever grateful to Shawn and Ed. K.D.
★★★★★
I have worked with Rob, Shawn and The Collins Law Firm team in connection with both complex business transactions and litigation over the past several years. Shawn is far and away the best business litigation attorney I have worked with. Rob has been our lead attorney on M&A and corporate restructures, and he has delivered each time, and on time. I would highly recommend Rob to get the deal done! W.D.

He has a great team of lawyers working with him. M.F.
