Prescription drugs can greatly inhibit a person’s ability to drive, ending in a serious Rockville accident. Look at any list of side effects for a prescription medication, and you will invariably see at least one or two symptoms that could potentially affect a person’s driving habits. For example, possible side effects among many medications include:

  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Trouble concentrating
  • Lack of coordination
  • Restlessness
  • Hyperactivity
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Blurred vision
  • Joint pain
  • Seizures
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts

Any one of these side effects can contribute to a person losing control behind the wheel of a vehicle. Maybe the other driver involved in your Rockville car accident seemed a little disoriented when she exited the vehicle. Perhaps she acted so tired that you can’t help but wonder if she had taken a sleeping pill just before getting behind the wheel. Whatever the sign, proving your suspicion that the other driver’s medical issue somehow contributed to your Maryland car accident may be very difficult. Medical records are private, and simply gaining access to this information will require the aid of an experienced Southern Maryland accident attorney who can get the evidence necessary to prove that such information is relevant to your case.

When you’ve been involved in a Maryland car crash and are facing skyrocketing medical bills for your injuries, it pays to rely on an experienced attorney who can help you get the compensation you deserve to cover your expenses. If a medical issue was involved, proving it and that the other person is responsible may be more difficult than you realize.
