Personal Injury

Was the accident, injury or death caused or contributed to by alcohol or drugs?

Accidents on the roads, in the workplace or in a public or private space; IFC can help with correlating circumstances with evidence, interpreting test results and recommending additional tests if required.

  • Determine if alcohol or other drugs contributed to the circumstances leading to the personal injury: Did the consumption of alcohol lead to some risk-taking behaviour that then caused an accident? 
  • Evaluate medical and prescription records to assess likely toxicity of drug(s): Is it possible that an employee’s depression medication will increase the risk of an accident?
  • Determine if drugs or drug combinations contribute to the incident precipitating the insurance claim: Was the incident caused by a decreased sense of care and caution, a result of a lunch time glass of wine?
  • Critique the report or claims of another Expert.

IFC are happy to address any of these questions or any others you may have and routinely provide advice and reports addressing all issues relating to Insurance and CTP claims.

A quick phone call or brief consultation can help you determine the role of drugs in your matter.
