Parkinson’s Disease

May 21, 2009

Parkinson’s Disease is not curable.  It affects the nervous system, causes tremors and patients have difficulty moving.  Parkinson’s Disease may also mimic other conditions, such as a person who is under the influence in the form of alcohol and or drugs. What happens if a person is accused of causing injury due to a motor vehicle accident?  The initial assumption would be, the accused was under the influence.  The accused would exhibit signs of disrupted movements, instability, slow movements, slurred speech, nausea and vomiting (as a side effect of medications been taken for Parkinson’s Disease). One can then dispute the premise that a person causes the accident due to being chemically altered (i.e. alcohol or illegal drugs) as suppose to exhibiting signs of Parkinson’s Disease.
