Being hit with a DWI charge can be shocking and frustrating. It’s a serious matter that has the potential to negatively affect your life if you are convicted. There are a few things you need to think about once you are charged to help you fight against it.
The first and most important of the elements is time. Taking into consideration how quickly you can be charged and expected in court, it is necessary to take action as soon as possible before you miss out on any potential way to fight it. There is a lot of work required in a short amount of time, which is why you need to seek out an experienced DWI attorney to assist you with your case.
The second most important thing to do is to get the details of your arrest. The papers describing your arrest, the procedures, and the tests done to determine you committed a DWI can contain pertinent information that could help your case. The common tests administered to determine your blood alcohol content are blood, urine, and breathalyzer. An experienced DWI attorney can go through the comprehensive details of your arrest and strategize with you to determine which arguments would be strongest.
Vital mistakes can be made by even the most experienced police officer when conducting a test to determine your blood alcohol content. These errors would likely be found within the report containing the details of your arrest. Even without a mistake made, the prosecution faces evidence hurdles when using those assessments, results make it difficult to even secure the data being admitted. No two cases are ever the same and the personal details of your arrest are important in creating strategies that are not generic, but rather specific to your individual situation.
These two tasks may seem easy, but it’s surprising to see how many people fail to seek the details of their arrest or don’t obtain adequate representation in time. It can be the little things that leave you with fees, fines, jail time, rehab, higher insurance rates, and a record. Do not delay, if you have been charged with a DWI.
