CRASH OTHER DRIVER ON DRUGS – CAR ACCIDENT LAWYERS MN
Our car accident lawyers have represented many people injured by a drunk driver, but there also have been cases where the other driver who caused the crash was high on drugs – usually marijuana or methamphetamine. Not to mention, millions of people are on prescription pain killers at any time in Minnesota and throughout the country. Unfortunately, our auto accident lawyers have found there are many cases where people on drugs continue to drive even though they are impaired. Sadly, when the other driver is under the influence of drugs, a terrible car accident can be the result.
CAR ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS – INVESTIGATION DRIVER UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF DRUGS
To determine which driver was negligent in causing a car accident, including if the other driver is under the influence of drugs, our attorneys often have to conduct an investigation into the circumstances of the crash. Sometimes what is written on the police accident report is not an accurate depiction of what happened. Investigation is often crucial in a car accident case, and especially when a truck is involved or the auto accident happens at an intersection. Our top car accident injury attorneys have won cases throughout MN, even when the responding police officer initially attributed 100% fault for the collision to our client’ car. Investigations can be particularly important in semi-trailer cases, pedestrian cases, and drunk driving cases. Investigation are also especially important in intersection crashes where someone ran a red light causing the car accident, was speeding or following too closely, or failed to stop for a stop sign or signal a turn. Even a rear end accident needs an injury lawyer investigation to avoid potential defenses. If you have been injured in a car accident in Minnesota, the sooner you call our lawyers the sooner we can begin our investigation to prove or cement your case. Hopefully, if the other driver appears to have been high driving on drugs, the police will notice strange behavior and do the appropriate testing. Our car accident lawyers are very unlikely to be able to accomplish a drug test of the other driver, and MN law generally prohibits us from getting the other driver’s medical records to see if they had a prescription for pain medication at the time of the crash. We will of course look at the other driver’s criminal records, social media, and friends, to see if we can determine a drug problem that may have caused the accident – but the most important evidence will come from the police at the accident scene.
