The Affects of Prescription Drugs

Typically, when someone mentions a DUI accident, your first thought is drunk drivers. It is true that when someone drinks and drives, serious accidents and injuries can occur. Some of the serious personal injuries include brain injuries, spinal cord damage, and other life-changing injuries. However, a driver can be under the influence of numerous things, not only alcohol.

As Lake Forest personal injury lawyers, we want you to know that there are other substances that can affect your ability to drive properly. Many people do not understand the impact that prescription drugs and over the counter drugs have on their driving ability.

Even if we do not read the labels on our medicine, they will all have some kind of side effect. Some medications have more serious side effects than others, and those side effects can seriously impair a driver. If you take painkillers, they can make you feel weak, which will cause you to respond slower than normal. Other medications will also affect your vision, and this can cause serious problems when you are on the road.

If someone drives after taking a prescription drug or an over the counter drug, the consequences can be tragic. If you cannot see the road clearly, you may not be able to respond in time to avoid hitting another vehicle or a person.
