Miami Drugged Driving Car Accidents Attorney
Contact this Miami drugged driving car accident lawyer if you or a loved one has been injured in a crash. Drugged driving is illegal and can result in serious and often fatal car accidents. Drugs lessen your response time, impair your judgment, and make it hard to drive carefully. Just like alcohol, drugged driving is extremely dangerous and puts the driver, passenger, and others in danger of sustaining serious and life-threatening injuries.
There are several types of illegal substances, and there is a wide range of risks connected with them. For instance, stimulants such as cocaine can cause erratic driving, and marijuana can cause slow reaction times and worsen judgment. Even drugs that have been legally prescribed by a doctor can cause side effects that impair driving abilities. This issue involves every age group from teens to elderly drivers, and many individuals are not aware of the potential dangers and side effects of their prescribed medications before driving.
Common side effects of prescription drugs can include drowsiness, dizziness and nausea. Also, note that certain drugs can cause serious side-effects when mixed with another drug or alcohol. So, always ask your doctor if it’s safe to drive after taking any new prescriptions. This is crucial in order to protect yourself and others on the road.

Illegal/Illicit narcotics and “street drugs” can also impair the normal faculties necessary to operate a vehicle safely. These include cocaine, heroin, marijuana, fentanyl, PCP (speed), and LSD/Acid.
You might be able to use that fact to argue that the other driver was at fault for the accident if he or she was intoxicated/impaired as a result of drug use. That is, after an accident, the other driver might argue that you (rather than he or she) was responsible for the wreck. But, if the other driver was impaired or intoxicated because of drug use at the time of the collision, then you will be able to use that fact as proof that he or she most likely caused the accident (rather than you being responsible). After all, it is widely known that drug use reduces a person’s ability to drive carefully and consequently increases the chances of a crash.Fairness the Goal of this Miami-Dade Drugged Driving Car Crash/Wreck Law Firm
Moreover, you might be able to pursue a punitive damages case against the other driver if the driver who caused your accident was driving under the influence of drugs at the time of the collision. Punitive damages are intended to serve as a deterrent when the defendant’s misconduct was sufficiently bad. Nevertheless, in your case, you will be required to file a motion and obtain an order from a judge allowing for punitive damages. So, the best option is to contact Mr. Quackenbush to see if you will be eligible for these types of damages.
Additionally, if you have been injured because of the negligence of a driver who was under the influence of narcotics/drugs at the time of the wreck, then you might be able to pursue a case against the person or entity that provided the drugs to the careless driver. This is true because the supplier of the drugs should know that drugs/narcotics can cause the other person to behave and drive negligently.Call 954-448-7288 for Help from a South Florida Drugged Driving Vehicle Collision Attorney/Lawyer
