Texas Drugged Driving Accident Lawyer
There are many substances drivers may use that can impair their ability to operate a vehicle, whether legal, controlled or otherwise. Driving while intoxicated or under the influence doesn’t just pertain to substances like alcohol and marijuana. It is possible for drivers to be held criminally and civilly liable if they are taking any medication or substance that has altered their abilities to drive safely. We at the Pascoe Law Firm know how the law applies to these situations and can prove negligence in the event you are injured by a driver who used any substance in an irresponsible manner.

Types of Medications that Impact Driving Ability
- Prescription Pain Relievers and Medications for Anxiety -- Some medications like Vicodin, OxyContin, Valium or Xanax can impair your ability to drive by causing drowsiness or blurring your vision. If you need to take these drugs, you should consider alternate forms of transportation.
- Street Drugs -- It goes without saying that drugs such as cocaine, heroin, marijuana, morphine, and methamphetamines all have marked effects on our mental state. These drugs never mix well with the operation of machinery and motor vehicles.
- Over the Counter Medications- These drugs are most likely to surprise drivers who never suspect that a dose of cold or allergy medication can impair their ability to drive. Always make sure that you take the correct dosage and avoid driving if you feel drowsy or dizzy after taking an over the counter drug.
