Fewer states in the nation have harsher criminal penalties than the state of Texas. Many outsiders question Texas law that prohibits, for instance, drug use and marijuana possession when several other states and communities are beginning to legalize marijuana for medical and recreational use.
But no matter which side of the debate you're on when it comes to drug use, it's easy to agree that drugged driving can be just as dangerous as drunk driving when it comes to negligent behavior. And, this is the type of behavior that gets other people seriously injured or killed in Texas car wrecks.
We do not rush to settle cases in our personal injury practice, which works to your benefit. But that doesn't mean we sit on our heels, either, in the crucial days and weeks immediately following a drugged driving accident.
If you were hit by a drugged driver, call our San Antonio drugged driving accident attorneys at (210) 774-6445 for a free consultation.
Sidelined by Drugged Driving in Texas?
Drunk driving has gotten plenty of attention over the last couple of decades. But, with the growing movement to legalize marijuana for medical purposes, more people are recognizing the problem of drugged driving.
But drugged driving cases go beyond marijuana. At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we handle all types of drugged driving cases, including those involving:
- Marijuana, with or without a prescription (Texas does not recognize medical cannabis use)
- Synthetic marijuana (also known as "spice")
- Bath salts
- Opioids and heroin
- Painkillers and other drugs prescribed by a doctor
We also handle cases involving any other drug that can impact safe driving. Just because a person has a prescription doesn't mean he or she should be driving. Anyone who has been injured because a motorist was driving while high will understand how important it is to seek justice for negligent (some would add "purposeful") behavior.
