Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle when you aren’t in your right mind is a bad idea, no matter the cause of why you aren’t in your right mind. Our previous blog post discussed how you can face criminal charges because of drugged driving. This is a similar charge to drunk driving.
When you know that you are impaired in any manner, seeing the cruiser behind you might make your heart drop into your stomach. It is important that you don’t do anything at this point that will harm your defense. We need to be able to work through your defense options with you, so make sure that you are thinking about this when you are pulled over.
Drunk driving or drugged driving charges are very serious and come with harsh penalties. They can get even more serious if you are involved in an accident. An accident that caused serious injuries could lead to enhanced charges. A fatal accident could even mean that you have to face homicide charges. All of this might be on top of the drunk driving charges.
We know that you might not have realized the severity of the situation when you decided to drive. We can help you to come up with a defense strategy so that you might be able to move on with your life with minimal impacts. Of course, we can’t make any promises here, but we can work with you to make sure that you know the options you have and are making decisions based on the facts at each junction of the case.
