Driving Under Influence of Prescription Drugs Is Risky

Comments Off

Causing a motor vehicle accident while under the influence of prescription drugs may be deadly, and courts will be inclined to treat the event the same as driving under the influence of alcohol.

Narcotic medications, whether prescription or over the counter, may have an intoxicating effect that impairs one’s ability to drive safely. One who is injured by such a driver should also view their right to compensation the same way as one who is injured by a drunk driver.
