Indiana Car Accident Lawyer |New Drugs Can Influence Drivers

Posted by Guy DiMartino | Oct 31, 2014 | 0 Comments

Indiana car accident lawyer discusses a recent newspaper article explaining how new drugs can influences a driver's ability to handle their vehicle.

For years we have had to deal with other drivers who were under the influence of alcohol, prescription drugs, and illicit drugs.  The Times recently reported that a driver who was allegedly high on synthetic pot caused an accident with injuries.  According to the report, a man was pinned between a guardrail and a car in South Haven.  The man's legs were mangled. He was transported to Porter Hospital for emergency surgery.

Police tracked down the driver of the vehicle and found two empty baggies of synthetic pot.

Now with the advent of synthetic pot and cocaine there is a new array of drugs that can impair a driver's ability to driver a motor vehicle.  There are no approved drug tests for these synthetic drugs so it will be difficult to prove the impairment without physical findings or eyewitnesses.

As a general rule, clients who have been injured in motor vehicle crashes by impaired drivers have increased settlement value because juries just don't like people who drink/drug and drive.
