Can taking precribed medicine lead to an automobile accident?
People are prescribed medicine for a variety of medical conditions. While many of these medications help treat the illness, they can also have a number of side effects that make driving dangerous.
For instance, some medications make people drowsy. The resulting tiredness behind the wheel can impair a person's ability to drive or cause them to fall asleep.
In most cases, the doctor who prescribes the medication will inform the patient of any side effects. However, the driver could be held responsible for any auto accidents caused by the drug's side effects.
