Drugs & Driving Accidents

Drugged Driving Accidents

In todays society the use of prescription and illegal drugs is more prevalent than ever. The prescription drugs are commonly prescribed for a plethora of ailments, syndromes & disorders including: Insomnia, Depression, Anxiety Disorders and Pain Management among others. Illegal drugs are typically used as a form of self medicating where getting high or getting intoxicated is the goal. With the astronomical rise in the amount of prescribed drugs in our society there is also a considerable spike in the amount of Drugged Driving Accidents. These are accidents involving recreational drug or prescription narcotics instead of alcohol. Despite the fact that these prescriptions explicitly say not to drive or operate machinery while taking medication people do not adhere to these warnings. In addition, the use of recreational drugs and operating a motor vehicle while on them is ever increasing in today’s world. With that, you can be hurt, injured or killed in a Narcotics Induced DUI Accident without the negligent driver having consumed any alcohol.
