Were You Injured by Someone Driving Under the Influence of Drugs?
Many people in North Carolina do not realize that DWI, or driving while intoxicated, can also refer to driving while impaired by illegal, or illegally obtained, controlled substances — or medications prescribed by a physician or psychiatrist.
Commercial truck drivers have been known to compel themselves to stay awake for long trips by using speed or amphetamines. Medical outpatients have attempted to drive while under the influence of a prescription drug painkillers or mood-levelers such as Xanax or Valium. Thrill-seeking joyriders have caused accidents, injuries and deaths by selfishly operating a motor vehicle while using marijuana or some combination of drugs and alcohol.
With simple DWI and drunk driving charges connected to an accident, blood-alcohol test results can be a factor that prove or disprove a driver's innocence in an accident. For those impaired by drugs, however, explanations are not so simple. There is currently no national or state standard for measuring a level of inebriation while driving. Methods for testing such levels are not standardized.
The fact that the "jury" is still out on the subject does not make you any less injured or in pain, or contribute to the financial compensation you deserve in any way.
