The increased risk of an injured person driving

Posted on October 21st, 2009 No Comments

While a driver’s license permits an individual to operate certain types of vehicles, that does not mean a person can drive under any circumstances.

For instance, if a person has been injured and is handicapped in some way that will hamper that person’s driving ability, that person may not be allowed to operate a vehicle.

This could occur if a person breaks his or her right leg and wears a cast that restricts that person’s ability to push down on the pedal. In such a case, the doctor will typically advice the person against driving until the cast is removed.

However, if the person does not heed the doctor’s warning, drives anyway, and is involved in a wreck, that person may be charged with negligence or an intentional tort. If convicted, the person will likely receive a more severe punishment.

If you or anyone you know has been involved in a car accident with someone who should not have been driving, contact the San Antonio car accident lawyers of Chris Mayo Injury Lawyers at (210) 999-9999.
