Auto Accident Caused by Drug Impairment Leaves Child with Permanent Brain Damage

Prescription drug use (and abuse) is a rising factor in auto accidents across the United States. Drowsiness, slowed reaction time, and disorientation are just a few side effects of prescription medications that can affect a person’s driving abilities.

A man driving the wrong way crashed head-on with a vehicle that carried a mother and two children. Police said the car’s computer showed the man was driving at up to 70 mph at the time. The woman sustained foot, leg and neck fractures, according to reports. Her three-year-old daughter suffered a broken collar bone, while her two-year-old son suffered cardiac arrest and permanent brain damage. The negligent driver was also hospitalized with serious injuries.

Tests revealed that the man benzodiazepine, a prescription drug that can induce sleep and hypnotic states, in his system at the time of the crash. He did not have a prescription for the drug. He was charged with aggravated DUI causing great bodily harm.

If you have been injured or lost a loved one because of someone else’s reckless behavior behind the wheel, it is important to contact an experienced auto accident attorney. You have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the other driver, and may be able to recover compensation for your accident-related expenses. Lawsuit Financial works with top attorneys nationwide and would be happy to help you locate an experienced attorney in their area.

Lawsuits are expensive; the majority of injured people who make claims do not have significant assets. If the injured person is unable to work, has reduced income, or has expenses associated with care or disability; it may not be possible to wait until the end of the lawsuit before obtaining funds. Once a lawyer is retained and a lawsuit filed, lawsuit funding can be arranged.

Lawsuit funding helps plaintiffs’ level playing field and prevents them from being forced, by financial distress to settle valuable cases too early for too little. This type of cash advance does not need to be paid back until the case is settled. If the case is lost, repayment of the cash advance is waived. There are no credit checks, no employment verification, and no restrictions on the use of the money whatsoever.
