Tampa DUI lawyer helps client involved in car accident with .193 BAC.

Quick summary of the Tampa DUI case: Client was arrested for a DUI charge involving an accident after he was involved in a two car accident. No one was injured, but when they asked him to submit to a breath test, his breath level was .193 BAC, which is more than twice the legal limit, so he was charged with an enhanced DUI.

DUI defense: The accident was a major sticking point for the prosecutor, as were the high breath alcohol levels. However, through negotiations, we were able to get the charges reduced so that he avoided the ignition interlock device, avoided the maximum $2000 fine, and avoided the vehicle immobilization.

Results: Client’s case was reduced from an Enhanced DUI.

How this helps your Tampa DUI case: If you’ve been charged with a DUI and were involved in an accident, there are several unique issues that can help you.The most important issue is not whether or not they can prove you caused the accident, but whether or not they can prove you were actually driving or in “physical control” of the car. This is a serious charge and you need the best Tampa DUI lawyer you can find to help. More importantly, the faster you get a lawyer involved, it will help you make a better decision about how to preserve potential evidence that might help you avoid a DUI conviction. (This is not the first time that this particular defense has worked for me — we’ve used the same defense in almost every DUI-Drug case I’ve fought… but only if the client contacted me earlier enough to preserve the evidence!)

Every case has defenses. Some may be stronger than others, but every case has issues that can be attacked and may lead to a better resolution. Every case is different, so you should speak with an experienced Tampa DUI attorney who has the knowledge and is willing to invest the time preparing the case to see if there are any chances of avoiding jail or avoiding a DUI conviction.

NEXT STEP: Speak with a DUI Lawyer Today

If you’ve been arrested for DUI, no matter how bad the case looks, don’t ever plead guilty without first talking to a Tampa DUI lawyer. There may even be a way that can get your charges dismissed, but you’ll never know unless you fight your charges by talking to a Tampa DUI lawyer as soon as possible. Many of the issues in DUI cases are very time sensitive. DUI cases are serious, with harsher penalties than many felony cases, and the “hidden cost” of DUI insurance that can easily climb past $25,000! (Good news: You can avoid almost all of that if your DUI lawyer gets the DUI dropped or gets the charge reduced!)
