In fact, we’ve gotten charges dismissed or reduced in 90% of our cases.
Consequences of DUI Accidents in Snohomish County
Getting into a DUI accident will not automatically and directly affect any sentencing requirements if you are convicted of the DUI later. However, the conviction penalties you face could be partly set under the court’s discretion. If you’ve been accused of causing a DUI accident and not just of driving while intoxicated, the court might be less willing to use lighter penalties, like shorter jail sentences or the option of probation. Instead, the judge presiding over your case may use the harshest penalties possible.
Furthermore, you are likely to face civil consequences if you are accused of causing a DUI accident. The other driver will try to hold you liable for their damages through an auto insurance claim and possibly a personal injury claim filed in civil court. Criminal and civil court systems are separate, but the outcome of a criminal case can affect the outcome of the civil case. By successfully challenging the DUI charge, you might also give yourself an advantage in the civil claims brought against you, too. That’s why it’s critical to call a skilled DUI accident defense attorney in Snohomish County from DUIHeroes to defend yourself.
