Redwood City DUI Injury Attorney
Facing DUI Causing Injury Charges in the Bay Area
Drinking and driving is a risk. Few of us have a way to test our blood alcohol content after a couple of drinks, so it is hard to know the level of risk. The risk of course, includes having an accident, being injured, or injuring someone else and being prosecuted.
If someone has been injured in an accident in which you are accused of driving under the influence, we understand what you are going through. While you may not have been impaired or even been at fault, if you had a certain level of alcohol or drugs in your system, all parties may blame you and charges will still be filed against you. You may feel you have already been judged guilty without your day in court. Only an experienced DUI attorney in the Bay Area will know how to turn your case around for you.
How We Can Help You
The emotional and vigorous prosecution in drunk driving injury cases mean you must have someone skilled on your side. When you hire attorney Dwyer, you will have an experienced and capable Bay Area DUI attorney totally and completely on your side. Not judging you, but working for you at every step. Backed by more than 30 years of experience, she can help you resolve your legal problems today.
Aside from the societal animosity, you may be facing a felony charge and even a personal injury lawsuit for drunk driving injuries in civil court. Auto accident injuries can be serious, such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and broken bones. In the case of a fatal accident, you could even face murder charges. Felonies are cases in which a penalty of a year or more in prison is possible, as well as a permanent record as a felon.
Rather than try to work with the police and prosecutors, let us inform you of:
- How your charges and penalties can be minimized
- The lifelong consequences of a felony DUI plea or conviction
Injury to a pedestrian, bicyclist, or someone in another car or your own car is a tragedy. But you owe it to yourself to demand fair treatment by the justice system. It is not uncommon for someone to pretend to be injured when they are not. Our office has uncovered alleged victims faking their injuries and we have therefore been able to substantially mitigate our client’s culpability.
