Fighting Accident DUIs

José Fanego can help you fight the charges of accident DUIs in Oakland County, MI. Accident DUIs happen when a person is driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol and causes a vehicular wreck. Accident DUIs differ from regular DUIs because the person facing the accident DUI charge was not pulled over by a police officer. Instead, the police were called because an accident occurred. Accident DUIs can result in catastrophic injury or death. When facing charges, it is imperative that you have an experienced lawyer that is well-versed in the accident DUI protocol to defending you.

The Penalties of Accident DUIs

In Michigan, prosecutors take accident DUIs very seriously. When fighting accident DUI charges, it is important to consider the extent to which damage occurred. If someone else involved in the accident was severely injured or killed, the penalties for accident DUIs go up. You may be facing time in prison and additional fines that must be paid off.

Hit and Run Accident DUIs

In some cases, the person facing an accident DUI charge may have fled the scene of the accident due to fear, shock, injury, or wanting to avoid being caught. Regardless, if you have fled the scene of an accident where you are facing charges of a DUI or OWI (Operating While Intoxicated), it is vital that you seek José Fanego’s help immediately.

Accident DUIs: Defenses

There are several ways to defend against an accident DUI. Just because there was an accident associated with a DUI does not necessarily mean that a conviction will occur. In some cases, we can contest the cause of the accident, meaning we will determine who was at fault. The cause of the accident can be effectively challenged even if serious injury or death has occurred. We will also challenge whether the police had probable cause for arrest. This will include evaluating whether the chemical test administered was valid and reliable. Don’t lose hope. We will get through this together.
