DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE

Driving under the influence (DUI) does not refer only to drinking and driving. DUI can also occur where a driver operates a motor vehicle under the influence of an illegal drug, such as cocaine or marijuana, or even over-the-counter drugs and prescription medications that warn against use while driving. These substances have been shown to impair the performance of the essential mental and motor functions necessary to operate a motor vehicle safely.

VICTIMS RIGHTS

If you have been injured by a person who was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you have rights. The choice to drive while intoxicated is reckless and represents a blatant disregard for public safety. An auto accident lawyer can, in the appropriate case, file a lawsuit on your behalf for both economic and non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering. In some instances, you may be entitled to PUNITIVE damages, damages designed to send a message to ALL drivers NOT to drive while intoxicated.
