Drunken driving accident cases have various additional complications
Every state, including Missouri, has legislation against driving with more than a .08 or higher blood alcohol content. When a drunken driver causes an accident, the penalties that they face are even harsher than standard drunken driving penalties. When you suffer an injury in an accident due to a drunken driver, contact our Columbia auto accident attorneys. We serve you by:
- Proving drunken driving. A common defense tactic for people accused of drunken driving is to question the legitimacy of the tests the officer used, or to claim that the officer’s reasons to pull the driver over were invalid. We ensure that the defense does not get away with such slippery tactics.
- Investigating previous DUIs. We analyze the records of the driver. If he or she has previous DUIs, we ensure that the penalties they face are even more severe. These penalties include prison sentences, major fines and loss of driving privileges.
- Defending your rights as a victim. Defense lawyers for drunken drivers will do everything they can to ensure that their client avoids paying restitution. We speak on your behalf in court and during sentencing to ensure that your rights as a victim are not ignored.
