Driver on Drugs Accident Claims Lawyer
It is an unfortunate fact that there are commercial truck drivers who choose to get behind the wheel under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Driving while impaired is dangerous in any circumstance. It is even more so when the driver is behind the wheel of a large commercial truck. If a truck driver is on drugs and causes an accident, they could seriously injure others or even cause a fatality. Victims of truck accidents with drug involvement may be able to seek compensation for their injuries or losses in a truck accident claim.
Laws regulating truck drivers are strict when it comes to DUIs and any type of drug impairment. Commercial truck drivers are held to a higher standard when it comes to drug or alcohol use when on the job. Considering the size of large trucks, it is imperative that truck drivers are lucid and alert when they are behind the wheel. If a truck accident occurs and the driver has drugs or alcohol in their system, they may be found at fault and liable for any injuries they caused to others on the road.
