What Are Some of the Most Common Drugs Involved in Vehicle Accidents?
Not counting alcohol, there are many drugs that affect people who then get behind the wheel of a car, truck or motorcycle. Some of these drugs are legal, but they can intoxicate a driver. In many DUID accidents, the drug in question wasn’t meant to be used while driving a vehicle. The following list is just a fraction of the drugs that have been involved in DUID automobile accidents:
- Sedatives and anti-psychotics
- Sleeping Pills
What Kind of Compensation Can I Expect in Washington?
It is nearly impossible to say what a case might be worth before reviewing the facts. Each claim is as unique as the person or family who filed it. Outcomes can vary, but depending on the amount of physical, emotional and mental stress you or a loved one has suffered, you could be entitled to a significant sum.
