Common Side Effects of Prescription Drugs and Their Impact on Driving
Prescription drugs can have powerful side effects that can make operating a motor vehicle dangerous. Even if the other driver had a prescription for the drugs in their system, they might have been told not to drive. Or, they may have been uninformed of the drug’s side effects, which could mean another party is liable.
These and other factors could be critical in winning your car accident case due to AZ § 20-259.01, which states the insurance policy of the at-fault party is responsible for covering losses.
Common side effects of prescription medication that may impact the operation of a motor vehicle may include:
- Blurred vision
- Slow reaction times
- Impaired cognitive function
- Abnormal heart rhythms
- Difficulty breathing
The driver may also have been mixing prescription drugs or had an allergic reaction to a specific drug. Even if the driver was taking the drug exactly as prescribed, the ingestion of a prescription drug may have contributed to the car accident. If we can prove this was the case, their insurance may be held partially or fully responsible for your losses.
How the Zanes Law Team Will Fight for Your Rights
Prescription drug car accident cases can be complex. There may be multiple factors at play, and the cause of the accident may not be immediately clear. We guide our clients through the aftermath of car accidents by offering the following services.
Investigate Your Car Accident
The first step in pursuing compensation is to understand exactly what occurred and who was at fault. For example, who was at fault for the accident? If multiple parties were at fault, what percentage should be assigned to each party? Once we understand exactly what occurred, we will begin to build your case.
Gather Evidence About Your Accident
Our next step is to gather evidence to support a claim. We may collect eyewitness testimony, seek photographs or video of the accident, speak with medical professionals about the impact prescription drugs may have had, gather medical reports, and work with an Arizona accident reconstruction specialist.
Calculate Your Full Losses
You may be facing lost time at work, painful injuries, medical bills, and damaged property. Our team will investigate every way the accident has impacted your life and calculate the full amount of losses you have suffered.
