Last week on the blog we talked about the dangers of drugged driving. Those in Massachusetts who choose to get behind the wheel of a car while under the influence of drugs or alcohol can suffer from decreased reaction time, deceptive depth perception and an inability to maintain appropriate speed and lane position. These dangerous drivers can cause a serious car accident at a moment’s notice, taking unsuspecting drivers by surprise. When this happens, victims can be left with injuries that cause significant pain and suffering, emotional harm and financial losses.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident caused by a drunk or drugged driver, then you may be concerned for your future. Unable to work, your financial resources may be limited. This, in turn, can threaten your ability to maintain your housing, transportation and even nutrition for you and your family. These can be trying times that leave you overwhelmed, stressed and not knowing where to turn.
Fortunately, if your injuries were caused by a negligent driver, like one who was high on drugs, then you might be able to pursue compensation by filing a personal injury lawsuit. Proving negligence and causation isn’t always easy, though, as you may find yourself going toe-to-toe with aggressive defense attorneys who will challenge every evidentiary aspect of your case. This is why you’ll likely need someone with legal skill on your side. Someone who can advocate for you and ensure that your claim is presented as strongly as possible given the evidence.
