Alcohol and Drug Use | Denver Trucking Accident Lawyer

Truck Driver Substance Abuse Issues

Alcohol and drug use is one of the reasons automobile and truck accidents happen so often. Unfortunately, the problem is not limited to illegal drugs. People routinely use illegal or legally obtained prescription medications that can affect their ability to safely operate motor vehicles.

Colorado and Federal laws require that any time a commercial truck is involved in an accident that causes injury, a post-accident drug and alcohol test must be performed. The results of this test can be particularly incriminating to the trucking company and driver and can also lead to a claim for punitive damages.

The following is a list of commonly used intoxicating substances:

  • Alcohol
  • Marijuana
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamines
  • Ecstasy
  • Heroin
  • Prescription medications, including painkillers like Vicodin and Percocet as well as muscle relaxants like Valium and Xanax

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a commercial truck, please call or email us today. The highly skilled attorneys at Fuicelli & Lee, PC are experts in handling semi-truck cases and drug/alcohol related automobile accidents. Fuicelli & Lee, PC is here to help.

Testimonials

I wanted to take this time to thank Keith Fuicelli for his hard work and also share my story with others who are looking for help. In September of 2006, I was turning left on a green arrow when a man ran a red light and smashed into my car.

Jake D.

I cannot say enough good things about the representation I received from Mr. Keith Fuicelli. His knowledge and capabilities helped me win my case against a large corporation, but more than that, I found my experience with Mr. Fuicelli to be one of excellence, not disappointment.

Deb C.

Thank you Mr. Lee for all you did for me. You have the highest level of professionalism! Your ability to understand the costumer and focus only on that client gave me the feeling I was always the most important client at that moment!
