Increasingly, Colorado police are beginning to arrest more drivers for driving under the influence of drugs. People driving under the influence of drugs — referred to as DUID — cause a significant number of motor vehicle accidents in Colorado every year.
If you were injured in an accident caused by a driver under the influence of drugs or alcohol anywhere in the Colorado Front Range region and the Denver area, call attorney James L. Finegan. With more than 40 years of personal injury litigation experience, Mr. Finegan will work zealously to help you recover full and fair money damages for financial damages resulting from your injuries, including:
Because of the high demands placed on truck drivers, the commercial trucking industry, in particular, is seeing an increased number of DUID truck drivers involved in serious truck accidents. Professional drivers often turn to stimulants to avoid fatigue after many hours behind the wheel.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates truck drivers’ use of alcohol and prescription medications. Truck companies are liable to be sued for damages if one of their truckers is found guilty of violating FMCSA regulations. If you were injured or lost a loved one in a trucking accident involving a DUI or DUID truck driver in the Colorado Front Range region, call attorney James L. Finegan for a free case evaluation.
It is not unusual to discover that a DUID or DUI driver was not carrying insurance at the time of the accident or was driving on a suspended license.
Attorney James L. Finegan will help you find every available means of recovering compensation, including filing against your own UM policy, if necessary. He will also investigate to determine whether another party or social host may be held liable for serving the driver excessive alcohol or selling illegal narcotics that led to the intoxication.
