Driving on Prescription Medications

Charges can be brought if the person who caused the deadly accident was impaired by any kind of substance, including prescription medication. We 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 Okaloosa criminal defense attorneys explore all avenues for defense to secure the best possible outcome.

Depending on the blood alcohol content (BAC), traffic violations, and level of injury, a conviction can bring penalties that include a minimum of three years in jail up to a maximum of 30 years in jail. The state of Florida aggressively prosecutes vehicular homicide cases, which is why you need an attorney who can stand up to the prosecution and fight for your rights and future.
