Hurt By a Driver on Prescription Medication? More Inside
If you think about it, almost 1 in 2 Americans is on some form of prescription medication. Some of these are vital, such as cholesterol or high blood pressure medication, and others are due to the chronic illnesses that keep rising with each passing year. Drivers who expect to be alert on the road may want to think twice before taking prescription medication, or they may want to consult with their physician so they don’t put others at risk. Prescription medication can alter your mood, cognitive skills and reaction time, making them part of a perfect storm that can lead to an accident.

It is important that a driver read the warning labels as well as discuss with their doctor about the possibility of operating heavy machinery or vehicles while on these medications, as well as know when one can drive and how long they should wait before attempting to do so.

If you were injured by a drugged driver, you are legally responsible when it comes to proving that their negligence was the proximate cause of your injuries. In addition, you must establish that your injuries are considerable enough to warrant the money damages you are seeking, and this is typically done via a medical exam, a series of treatments, prescription medication, time off work and so on. It is important however to note that most auto accident cases do not go to trial, and that they get solved by our prescription drug accident lawyers who engage with the insurance company and negotiate on your behalf. Time is of the essence, and the sooner you get started, the easier it will be to collect all evidence in one place and give your case the merit it deserves.
