Virginia Accidents Caused By Drivers Using Drugs

Virginia injury attorneys/lawyers Wilson & Hajek aggressively pursue impaired drivers and their insurance companies when innocent persons suffer personal injuries.

The public is focused on alcohol impaired driver causing car and truck crashes. Research by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows a growing problem with drivers under the influence of drugs. About 1 in 5 drivers (4,000 drivers) who were killed in 2009 had drugs in their systems.

Drugged driving is as bad as drunk driving. Both lead to car crashes, death and injuries to the driver, passengers and persons in other cars. Our Virginia law firm has always pursued drunk drivers who injured our clients. We have found in recent years that we must pay close attention to blood test results which reveal that drivers may be impaired by heroin, methadone, morphine, cocaine, methamphetamine, marijuana, LSD, prescription drugs and inhalants.

States should be setting standards for impairment levels just as was done to set alcohol limits. This will help protect the innocent drivers and passengers who may be killed or injured by the thousands of driers who drive while impaired by drugs. Our lawyers believe this will become an increasing problem on our highways leading to more deaths and injuries. Don’t let these impaired drivers off free, we will aggressively pursue them and their insurance companies for injuries they cause innocent persons.
