Holding negligent drivers accountable
Impaired driving accidents are not always caused by drivers who are drunk. In many cases, a driver was impaired due to the use of prescription or illicit drugs. Drugged driving accidents typically arise when a person ingests drugs that depletes his or her judgment and ability to react.
Drugs include not only illicit drugs, such as heroin, cocaine, methamphetamines, and marijuana, but also controlled substances and prescription drugs, such as sleep aids and benzodiazepines. Many over the counter drugs, such as allergy and cough medicine, can impair a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle safely, as well.
Accidents caused by drug-impaired drivers can often be catastrophic, resulting in serious injuries or even death. Victims may need surgery, hospitalization, medication, physical therapy and home health care. Recovering from their injuries may take months or even longer. Some are left with a permanent disability.
Recovering compensation after being injured in an accident caused by a drugged driver may be difficult. The driver may deny any drug use and refuse to accept responsibility. Don’t expect much help from the insurance company. They are not on your side. They are only interested in paying you as little as possible.
