Causing an accident while driving drunk is heavily punished in our state. Property damage, injuries and loss of life in an accident are serious legal problems, and should be managed by a Portland DUI accident attorney from my firm, Neal Weingart, Attorney at Law, LLC.
I have the following qualifications:
In these cases it is of extreme importance, as you will be charged with a felony offense.
Felony charges can be filed if an accident is believed to have been caused by a DUI driver. Such instances involve serious physical injury, or a hit-and-run (failure to perform the duties of a driver) when there is physical injury. The penalties imposed in a conviction can be very high, ranging from penalties ranging from probation for assault to penalties exceeding ten years in prison for manslaughter in the first degree. These penalties also include license suspension or permanent revocation. You may also be forced to pay any restitution to any victims involved or for any damage to property that is alleged to be the result of DUI driving.
As a Portland DUI accident lawyer, I should review the situation immediately. The consequences of a conviction are extensive, and there could be significant errors in the case against you. Were you tested for BAC correctly? Was another driver actually responsible for causing the accident? All of the details must be analyzed to advise you of the defense case I can present for you.
I am a skilled negotiator, and if working with the prosecutor to reduce charges will be beneficial to you, I can proceed to move ahead. Many cases have compelling evidence that could be presented to the court, allowing for an acquittal, and the ability to avoid the serious consequences of a conviction. Having a DUI accident conviction on your record will affect you for a lifetime.
Don't take chances with your case, contact me as soon as possible.
