Have you been arrested for driving while under the influence of a drug that makes driving unsafe? Many people are under the impression that only an illegal drug, such as cocaine, is the type of drug that can lead to a drugged driving arrest. However, even a prescription drug, including one that is prescribed legally to the driver (such as Oxycontin or Valium) can lead to a drugged driving arrest since these drugs can impair an individual’s ability to properly operate a motor vehicle.
A key element in any drugged driving case is the fact that the evidence does prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the accused motorist was unable to safely drive a car with the proper care and awareness of an uninfluenced individual. DUI drugged driving arrests, whether they involve illegal street drugs, prescription medications that are being properly used or prescription medications that were obtained illegally and being abused, are often very complex matters. They rely on expert testimony and detailed law procedures. The chance for harsher punishment increases if the arrested individual caused any harm to an innocent person as a direct result of their influenced driving. Our lawyers look to find flaws in the case against you and use it to your advantage for the best possible outcome.
