Mobile County Car Accident Caused by A Driver Under the Influence of Drugs

An Irvington, Alabama (Mobile County) car wreck has sent a pregnant woman and her 2 small children to the hospital. Initial reports indicate the at fault driver of the other vehicle was under the influence of drugs (DUI). The Mobile County car accident caused the young mother to go into labor and the baby had to be delivered by c-section at the hospital, because the mother fractured her pelvis in the accident. The decision on whether to criminally charge the at fault driver will likely be made once blood work is returned. Most often when people think of someone driving under the influence (DUI) they think of someone driving under the influence of alcohol; however, many drivers on Alabama's state highways and interstates are endangering the lives of others by driving under the influence of legal and illegal narcotics.

Agent Orange and VA Benefits

Almost four decades after stopping the wartime spraying of Agent Orange during the Vietnam War, the deadly effects of the chemical can still be felt both in Vietnam, and here in America. During the course of the War in Vietnam, Agent Orange was sprayed on jungles to deprive Vietnamese troops of ground cover. Recently, the U.S. and Vietnam have launched a health panel to look into the lasting effects of Agent Orange. Since the 1990s, the Department of Veterans Affairs has been linking the deadly herbicide to diseases and disabilities sustained by Vietnam Veterans. The VA now recognizes the following diseases and disorders as being linked to Agent Orange exposure:

  • Cancer of the Bronchus, Larynx, Lungs, Prostate, Trachea, Hodgkins Disease, Multiple Myeloma, Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
  • Soft Tissue Sarcoma
  • Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Type 2 Diabetes and many more.
