What to do if you are in a Long Island Accident with a Driver on Drugs


We hear a lot about the horrible consequences of drunk driving, but equally devastating to thousands of accident victims each year is the dangers of drugged driving.


According to a survey by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA), more than 11% of weekend, nighttime drivers tested positive for illegal drugs, and an addition 5%, tested positive for prescription or over-the-counter medications that could effect driving ability.


It is heartbreaking to hear the stories from the families of victims.  It is important if you or a family member were injured in an accident due to a drugged driver, that you have rights and can seek compensation in court for your injuries, expenses, pain and suffering.


How can a lawyer help you?

A lawyer will employ a team of investigators, doctors and accident experts to gather strong evidence for your case.


They will work to get compensation for all the medical bills, lost wages, any expenses related to the accident, any special construction or adaptations that need to be made due to injuries, as well as pain and suffering.
