Driver on Drugs Injury Lawyer

If the driver of a large commercial truck or bus is under the influence of drugs, they can pose a serious risk to others on the road. Unfortunately, this occurs more often than it should. While it is illegal for anyone, especially a commercial truck driver, to drive under the influence of drugs or alcohol, there are truck drivers that take this risk. When an injury or fatality accident is caused by a truck driver on drugs, the driver may be held liable for the damages caused by his/her negligence.

In most cases, truck drivers that are at fault for a serious injury or fatality accident will be drug tested by police and possibly by their employer. This is standard procedure and can reveal whether the driver was under the influence of alcohol or any other mind-altering substances. However, even if the truck driver tests positive for drugs, it is not a simple open and shut case for negligence and injury liability.

Trucking companies and their insurance carriers will fight allegations and try to limit their liability. You need an experienced truck accident attorney to help prove the driver was at fault to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries or loss.

Proving Negligence in a Drug-Related Truck Accident

If a truck driver tests positive for drugs after an injury accident, it is just the first step in building a case. Our experienced personal injury attorneys will investigate the accident and work diligently to link the driver’s drug use to the cause of the accident. If there was any indication that the driving was erratic before the accident, it can help build the case against the truck driver. It is important to look at all angles, as the trucking company may have attorneys fighting on their side to prove that they were not at fault.

If a truck driver on drugs caused a serious injury accident that harmed you or a loved one, you need a competent attorney on your side. Contact our team at Ligori & Sanders Attorneys at Law to schedule a free consultation to discuss your claim as soon as possible after the accident.

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
