Need An Injury Attorney Colorado – DUI
Driving under the influence of alcohol, narcotics, strong medications, or even fatigue is negligent and irresponsible. Even if you feel like you can drive, be aware that Colorado has a DWAI (Driving While Ability Impaired) which means you can be under the legal limit for BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) and still receive charges if the officer citing you questions your ability to operate the vehicle. While a DWAI charge is not as severe as a DUI or DWI, it is still a matter best handled by a skilled defense attorney. Colorado has one of the harshest punishments for DUI charges including up to a $1,000 fine and up to a year in jail all for a first offender. Also, the 96 hours community service punishment is no easy task to complete for someone who works a full-time job. Many prosecutors are seeking the maximum punishments for first-time offenders to make them a warning to others in the community.
With Colorado’s new repeal of marijuana prohibition for recreational use, police are searching vehicles and suspecting drivers who may be the under the influence of marijuana as well. These charges hold up the same in the courtroom and police are using mouth strips to check for sobriety when they suspect the driver has been smoking or eating a marijuana product.
Fighting these charges on your own is not an easy task. There are several aspects you have to deal with including a DMV hearing to retain your license soon after the arrest. The court hearing will be another expensive and taxing issue. When you bring your case to the attorneys of Needaninjuryattorneycolorado.com, you will be greeted with a knowledgeable professional who will give you the chance to tell your side of the story. We know that speaking to the police is intimidating and you do have the right not to incriminate yourself if you are questioned or arrested.
We will handle the process of your charges from your arrest all the way up to sentencing. Many times we can help in lessening the charges. Other times we have a blatant disregard for our clients’ Constitutional rights during the arrest. We can help if you believe the breathalyzer used in your case was calibrated correctly or not as well as the truth behind any chemical test you were issued. The main chemical drugs of marijuana stay in the user’s body long after the effects have diminished and these chemical strip tests are not always accurate. We will help you come up with the right plan to have the punishments decreased or the case dismissed entirely. Walking into the courtroom without an attorney to represent you is almost like asking for the maximum punishment to be enforced.
