    How Does Drug testing Work?

    Drug testing involves the analysis of bodily samples to detect the presence of drugs or their metabolites. Various methods are utilized, including urine testing, hair testing, blood testing, and saliva testing. Urine testing is the most common method due to its convenience and ability to detect a wide range of substances. Hair testing provides a longer detection window, offering insights into past drug use. Blood testing is highly accurate but is usually reserved for immediate testing, such as in cases involving severe injuries. Saliva testing is non-invasive and can detect recent drug use within a shorter time frame


    Is Testing for Narcotics Necessary After an Auto accident?

    In the event of an auto accident, drug testing is crucial for several reasons. Testing helps determine whether drug impairment contributed to the occurrence of the accident. This information is vital in establishing liability and ensuring accountability for responsible parties. Secondly, drug testing protects the rights of all parties involved by providing an objective assessment of any drug-related factors that may have influenced the incident. Drug testing also serves as a deterrent, promoting safer driving practices and discouraging individuals from operating vehicles under the influence of drugs.


    How Can Drug-testing Help My Car accident Claim?

    A positive drug test result can have significant implications in the legal process following an auto accident. It can serve as compelling evidence of negligence on the part of the driver who tested positive for drugs. This evidence may impact the allocation of fault and liability, potentially influencing the compensation awarded to the injured party. Additionally, a positive drug test result can strengthen the case for punitive damages, as it demonstrates a willful disregard for the safety of others on the road.


    Can An Attorney Use Test Results as Evidence?

    After an auto accident with another motorist who you believe may have been operating their vehicle under the influence of drugs, you must contact a car accident lawyer as soon as possible.

    A car accident lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys can obtain the other driver’s test results to build your case and prove the other driver was negligent. They will use these findings when negotiating a settlement with the other driver’s insurance company and fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
