Drug Related Injuries
If you have recently been involved in an accident and suffered an injury, or if someone close to you has been injured or killed in an accident by someone under the influence of drugs, you may have the legal right to obtain compensation. Drug related accidents that result in serious injuries can permanently negatively impact the victim's health and lifestyle. If the accident was caused by a drug impaired individual you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, loss of wages and other losses.
According to the National Center for Injury Prevention & Control drugs other than alcohol (e.g., marijuana and cocaine) have been identified as factors in 18% of motor vehicle driver deaths. The CDC estimates that in 2002, 8% of persons over 12 years of age used an illicit drug. In 2001 there were 193,034 emergency room visits relating to cocaine.
