Can I Be Charged with DUI If I Took Prescription Drugs?

Many people are completely unaware of the fact that they can be arrested and charged with DUI in our state, even if they only took prescription drugs or over-the-counter medications. Driving a vehicle or being in control of a motor vehicle while you are under the influence of any drug is illegal. If you have been arrested for driving under the influence of a prescription drug and it can be proven that the prescription drug is what made it unsafe for you to operate your vehicle, you will be charged with DUI.

There is a much greater chance that you will be able to successfully fight the charges you face if you have a Savannah DUI attorney on your side.

Our lead attorney is a former prosecutor, and esteemed member of The National Trial Lawyers: Top 100 Trial Lawyers, who has established such a strong reputation for defending our clients' rights that many people simply refer to him as the "DUI Daddy."

We understand the devastation that can be caused when an individual is charged with DUI, particularly in cases where the only drugs or alcohol the individual consumed were prescription drugs as dispensed at the direction of his or her physician. Our law firm represents clients regardless of whether they have multiple DUI arrests or it their first run-in with the law. If the officer who arrested you did not have probable cause to do so, your breath & blood test results were faulty due to improperly calibrated equipment or administrator errors, or there were any other extenuating circumstances that resulted in your arrest, we will stop at nothing to get the charges against you dismissed.
