LAWYER FOR VICTIMS OF DRUG IMPAIRED DRIVERS
In many cases, driving under the influence of drugs, sometimes even prescription drugs, is no different from driving drunk. Reaction time slows, perceptions fail, and the driver has a reduced ability to control the vehicle. If you suffered injuries in an auto accident caused by a drug impaired driver, you have the right to hold him or her liable for damages and suffering.

PRESCRIPTION DRUGS AND DRIVING
Are you a victim of a DWAI car accident?
Most people understand that illegal drugs, such as meth, cocaine, marijuana and heroin, can impair driving, but not everyone considers the dangerous side effects of powerful prescription drugs. What they don’t understand, is that painkillers are narcotics, and can impair a driver’s abilities just as much as an illegal substance. Too often, adults and teens alike will take these medicines, get in the car and drive, putting them and others at risk.
Dangerous prescription drugs include:
The Raimondo Law Firm will work hard to prove that the medications led to the auto accident and to hold the driver accountable. Mr. Raimondo will personally evaluate your claim, talk to witnesses, gather valuable evidence, and sometimes consult experts to build a strong case on your behalf.
The doctor that prescribed the prescription drugs may also be held responsible. He will carefully review your case to determine if this option is available to you.
