DUI and DWI – Operators Face Serious Penalties
Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) charges come with some hefty penalties. A first offense can carry a misdemeanor penalty of up to six months, often with a minimum of several days in jail. Felony DUI, where another person is killed, can result in several years in jail. Fines for DUI and DWI charges can range from $500 to $2,000, along with court costs. There can be a number of circumstances and other consequences surrounding a DUI/DWI case, so it is best to retain the services of a skilled attorney from Davis, Davis, & Davis to protect your rights.
Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) When You Least Expect It
It may seem strange to say, but DWI can happen when you least expect it. Intoxication does not always relate to drinking too much alcohol. Certain medications may also place drivers at risk. These substances can range from common cold medications, prescriptions for pain, and more. Operators may not know to anticipate intoxication or impairment as a side-effect until it is too late.
If you or a loved one are involved in an accident and face DWI charges related to some unexpected medication issue, our attorneys at Davis, Davis, & Davis can help. We serve many clients who drive on Interstate 81, Interstate 77, Route 460, and Route 11. Call for your consultation so we can review your options with you!
Leaving the Scene/Hit-and-Run Accidents
There can be criminal penalties (either felonies or misdemeanors) imposed for leaving the scene of an accident that involves another car, a pedestrian, animal, or a fixed object. For example, hitting an unoccupied vehicle in a parking lot, without leaving your contact information on the windshield, may be considered a hit-and-run. You may be sued in court for the damage suffered by the other person, the department of motor vehicles may impose administrative penalties, and a court may find you liable and impose “treble damages” on you, which means you pay triple the amount of damages as a punishment for bad behavior.
