Intoxication from Illegal Substances
A motorcyclist can become seriously injured because of another motorist’s use of illegal substances. These substances can greatly impact a person’s ability to drive or ride. This level of impairment can seriously threaten motorcyclists, who have little protection if struck by an intoxicated motorist.
If you have been injured on the road by an intoxicated driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation to help with your medical bills and other expenses.

Signs of Motorist Impairment
DUI laws generally define intoxicants as any type of substance that impairs a motorist’s abilities to operate their vehicle. However, illegal substances can prove among the most dangerous of the possible intoxicating substances. A driver or rider abusing illegal drugs while on the road may experience the following problems, leading to dangerous and erratic roadway behaviors:
- Wild mood swings, including extreme aggression
- Feelings of paranoia
- Lack of concentration
- Loss of consciousness
- Heart attack
- Diminished reaction time
These kinds of problems can lead a driver to swerve, weave, speed, and commit many different forms of hazardous driving behaviors. As motorcyclists are not very well protected on their bikes, collisions resulting from these dangerous behaviors can prove devastating and even deadly.
If you have been injured while on the road because of an intoxicated motorist, you may be entitled to pursue litigation. To learn more about your rights to compensation, contact the Wisconsin motorcycle accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today by calling 800-242-2874.
