Drunk driving charges necessitate a strong defense

Whether it is your first DUI or your third, you know that you are facing a serious legal predicament. In California, drivers convicted of drunk driving could be facing penalties that will have a substantial, long-reaching impact, and it is important to act quickly to seek defense help. A strong defense can help a defendant mitigate potential consequences and seek a beneficial outcome.

Most drivers know that driving under the influence of alcohol isn’t just a bad idea. It’s also illegal.

3 injured -- 1 fatally -- in a recent drunk driving accident

Many car accidents involve more than one vehicle. However, single vehicle accidents also occur frequently and can be just as deadly as those with multiple drivers. In California, when an accident is the result of drunk driving, the driver is likely to face various charges associated with the crash. Unfortunately, charges involving DWI even those not involving injuries, can result in hefty fines and possible jail time when a conviction is ultimately obtained.

Drunk driving suspected in wrong-way collision

The use of alcohol and other substances can affect an individual’s ability to operate a motor vehicle, while also causing impairment to their judgment, perception and muscle control. With this in mind, it is evident why drinking and driving is potentially far more dangerous than other means of distraction that drivers may encounter. In a recent collision, the driver is suspected of drunk driving after he allegedly entered a California freeway traveling in the wrong direction.

Recent accident may have been the result of drunk driving

When drivers take to the road, they are aware of the risks involved. Even seasoned drivers are not impervious to being involved in an accident. In California, car accidents are an all too common occurrence. Though many car accidents are not life threatening, when the collision is the result of drunk driving, victims are less likely to walk away without injury.
