Driving on Prescription Medications

Charges can be brought if the person who caused the deadly accident was impaired by any kind of substance, including a prescription. Our attorneys skillfully handle this type of complicated defense, developing strategies that consider the technical elements of the drug's effect on the body. Experts tend to disagree on the exact quantity of a medicinal dose and the effect prescription drugs have on motorists. The state has very stringent methods for prosecuting such cases. People who are facing charges of causing deadly accidents while on prescription drugs usually have no prior criminal records. Our defense attorneys explore all avenues for defense to secure the best possible outcome.
