Felony DUI-DWI & Car Accidents
Car accidents resulting from drunk driving can have serious results. Depending on where you live, this charge may be called Felony DUI or Felony DWI. It is a more serious drunk driving charge resulting when a passenger was injury as a result of the accused's drunk driving. It is often passenger in other vehicles, but this could refer to passenger in the same vehicle. Did you know that from 6 p.m. on Friday until 6 a.m. on Monday, that 1 in 5 of the drivers that you are on the road with are legally intoxicated? That is too say, they are beyond the legal blood alcohol concentration (BAC) and could be charge with DWI. Holidays like Christmas and Easter and unofficial ones too like Super Bowl Sunday - that number of impaired drivers drops to 1 in 4? While this criminal charge may result in jail time, it does nothing to help the victims with the financial hardships that follow. There are medical bills from treatment needs as a result of car accidents. There is loss wages resulting in the case of wrongful death.
