Liberty County DWI Accident Attorney

Accidents Resulting from Driving While Intoxicated

If you have caused an accident when driving while intoxicated, this may result in aggravated charges being filed against you. Serious damage to property is something the court will consider and which may result in consequences additional to those of a simpler DWI case. If the accident has resulted in the injury or death of another person, incredibly severe penalties apply. A Liberty County DWI lawyer can advise you as to the potential consequences you are facing and, more importantly, go over your legal rights and options.

If your insurance does not cover the cost of the damage caused, the judge can order you personally responsible for restitution to those affected. If you left the scene of the accident, more serious charges and penalties will apply. In cases where injury is caused to another, this is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, $10,000 in fines and 600 hours of community service. If another was killed as a result of your driving while intoxicated, significant increases in prison time and community service hours can apply.

What are my legal options?

Attorney Atkinson has extensive experience in all manner of DWI cases. His method does not entail immediately settling on a plea bargain, but constitutes and thorough and competent defense. Even if you have been charged with an accident, the distinction of whether or not your blood alcohol content played a part can at times make a difference. His firm will defend you with a conscious strategy which takes these kinds of things into account. DWIs involving accidents are often charged as felonies but a first point of review will be for any detail which may be used to potentially downgrade, if not have dismissed, the charges or penalties.

Contact a Liberty County DWI accident attorney for legal assistance if you have been involved in an accident while allegedly driving while intoxicated.
