What if the driver who injured me was high on drugs or a prescription medication?

Any substance that affects the ability to drive can lead to a DUI charge. This includes illegal drugs, cough syrups, allergy medications and many prescription drugs. Driving under the influence of drugs of many types can lead to serious car accidents, just as drinking and driving can. And you as the injured party have the right to sue the other driver for your injuries.
