In a recent blog post, we discussed the case of the man who is being returned to Florida from Ireland to face criminal charges for an accident that claimed the life of a passenger in his Maserati. Authorities noted that the man was intoxicated when the accident occurred. His case brings up an important point – you can’t just ignore drunk driving charges and think that they will go away. We are here to help you address these charges.
This weekend is one that is going to be filled with parties, thanks to the big game on Sunday. If you are planning on heading out to one and enjoying alcohol this weekend, make sure that you think about this man’s situation as you make your plans. You need to find a designated driver or make other plans to get home after the party.
One of the biggest mistakes that you can make this weekend is thinking that you can make it home safely even if you’ve had a few drinks. This is what might lead to you facing a drunk driving charge. You may not realize just how much your driving abilities have been impacted by the alcohol, so you might end up making mistakes that call attention to your vehicle while you are driving.
If you are pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving, make sure that you are keeping your rights at the front of your mind. One of these is that you have the right to remain silent until you have a chance to speak to your attorney. It is a good idea to invoke this one so that you don’t say anything that can be held against you in your case. We can work with you throughout your case.
