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.

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 had an amazing experience with Ligori & Ligori law firm. They handled my case with such professionalism. From the very beginning by sending someone to my home to get details and interview me after my accident, to my case manager Rochelle who was always a call away and explained every step and made sure there was always transparency and kept me updated with everything. I can be very tough and I called way too many times with millions of questions and my calls were never unanswered and my questions and concerns were always answered. Thanks to their amazing team, from the receptionist to John Castro the lawyer on my case who was always personal and relatable. Highly recommended!
