(DUI/DWI - Narcotics) - Petition - Personal Injury/Negligence Cause of Action


Drunk drivers cause accidents and injuries to other drivers far too often. It’s less common that an accident is the result of someone badly impaired from overdosing on prescription medications. This is one such case. The police investigation and witness statements revealed that the defendant driver in this case was trying to dispose of white pill bottles at the scene of the crash, had bloodshot eyes, and was impaired to the point of drooling and slurring his speech; he could not even answer basic questions. An experienced personal injury trial attorney knows that gathering all of the police investigation and report findings, through an open records request, is a crucial part of handling a case like this. The toxicology reports found that the defendant had high concentrations of two different narcotic pain relievers in his blood. This is an example of the type of petition that should be filed in order to commence a lawsuit in such a case.

Please see full Petition below for more information.
