Driving under the influence of drugs, whether they are illicit or legal, can be one of the most dangerous things you do on the road. Many drugs, including those sold over the counter (OTC) or prescribed by a medical professional, come with warnings about operating heavy machinery (including vehicles) while under their influence. Driving under the influence of legal drugs may come with different legal consequences than illicit drugs, but there are serious risks associated with both.

If you or a loved one were involved in an accident with someone driving under the influence of drugs, a Kent accident lawyer can protect your rights. You should not be held responsible for damages done to you or your property because of another driver’s carelessness. When you are ready to work with a personal injury attorney who will stand up for your rights and fight for you, a car accident lawyer from Herschensohn Law is ready to help.

Recovering Damages After an Accident With a Driver Under the Influence in Kent

Driving under the influence of drugs is a serious matter and one that should be met with equally serious legal representation. In Washington state, sobriety checkpoints are not allowed, which means that a driver under the influence will either get home safely, get pulled over, or cause physical harm or property damage to someone on their way to their destination.

When a driver does not reach their destination safely, it is often innocent people who suffer the consequences. If you were injured by someone driving under the influence of drugs in Kent, you have the right to seek compensation for your losses. Potential damages that you can recover include medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and lost earning potential, if you have long-term injuries.

If a driver under the influence of drugs damages your vehicle or other property, an accident attorney can help you seek compensation for property damage as well.

How Herschensohn Law Can Help

Driving under the influence of illicit drugs is a crime, and it should be treated as such. However, while the accident may result in heavy fines for the at-fault driver or even send them to jail, that will not resolve the injuries, financial losses, and other pain and suffering you experienced. When further action is necessary, Herschensohn Law can help you file a claim or lawsuit and fight for compensation.

Our car accident attorneys will review the toxicology reports, consult with medical experts, and review Washington state law to determine what should be included in your claim or lawsuit after your accident in Kent. In addition, we will review your medical records and other important information that can help us properly express the damage done to you.

Our team will review all the factors that led to your accident and look at the situation from every angle. We will also keep you up-to-date on all progress as you take much-needed time to recover from your accident.

National Efforts to Prevent Driving Under the Influence of Drugs


While there may be comfort in knowing that you can recover financial compensation for damages, keeping drivers under the influence of drugs off the roads is the best way to ensure the safety of our communities.

When it comes to illicit drugs, there is no doubt that the person under the influence is committing law-breaking behavior. However, as for prescription and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, the results are not as obvious.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is working to raise awareness of how legal drugs can negatively affect driving. If you are taking prescription or OTC drugs of any kind, be sure to educate yourself about their potential side effects and use caution while driving.


“Zach will always take time and give you quality advice that you can trust. Highly recommended!”

- P.R., Katy, WA
