Representing Victims of Drugged Driving in Miami
Drunk driving gets most of the attention in Florida. But under our laws, it is also illegal to drive under the influence of an intoxicating substance, including marijuana. With many Florida cities decriminalizing weed, or at least lowering the punishment for those convicted, we expect more motorists to get behind the wheel after lighting up a joint.
If you’ve been seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a high or intoxicated driver, please contact one of our Miami personal injury attorneys for more information. We can sue to ensure you obtain compensation to cover your financial and non-financial losses.

Victims Can Receive Compensation
When a high driver slams into someone, they likely face criminal punishment. However, there is also a civil side to these cases. Injured motorists or pedestrians can sue the driver for negligence and receive compensation for their injuries.
Marijuana has well-known side effects that impair drivers. The chemicals in marijuana can induce sleepiness or slow reflexes. A person can also suffer from foggy thinking or impaired judgment after lighting up.
To prevail, you need to show the driver did not operate their vehicle carefully. Technically, you don’t have to prove they were high. But we can often introduce evidence of any chemical tests to bolster our argument that they were a danger to others on the road.
At base, the law of negligence forces careless people to suffer the financial fallout from their actions. This means you can seek compensation for medical bills and lost wages, as well as for pain and suffering. With a marijuana DUI, we might also seek punitive damages to punish the defendant.
