Any time a serious accident or injury occurs, the people involved will often have their blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tested. If a breath or blood test shows a driver's BAC was .08% or higher at the time of the accident, not only will he or she face DUI charges, but they will also likely face enhanced penalties for causing an accident and injuring another person. If you are facing these types of DUI charges, an attorney at the Law Offices of Richard S. Lawson can investigate the circumstances of the accident in an attempt to uncover helpful evidence. You can trust an attorney at the firm to assess the unique facts of your case and decide how to best defend your case. By consulting an attorney at the office quickly, you will have a much better chance of avoiding a conviction and a number of severe penalties, such as jail, large fines, probation, and a suspended license for up to three years without the option of obtaining a restricted license.
