Vehicle Impoundment

Seattle DUI Attorney

Having your vehicle impounded is extremely disruptive. Without a car, your mobility is extremely limited, complicating your ability to conduct critical daily tasks. Getting to work is a challenge, buying groceries and other everyday life essentials is difficult and even just going out to meet with friends can be frustrating as you're completely dependent on someone giving you a ride. Financially, the costs and fees of getting your car out of the impound lot quickly add up and can potentially cost you thousands of dollars.

If your car has been impounded, immediately call a Seattle DUI attorney at DUI Heroes in order to obtain critical legal advice. Our experienced attorney team has helped hundreds of people deal with the legal issues concerning having their vehicle impounded and will fight to help you get your vehicle back as soon as possible, as well as attempt to recover financial loss stemming from the impounding.

Reasons for Vehicle Impoundments

There are several reasons why your vehicle might get impounded, including:

  • You're arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol or drugs
  • The vehicle is illegally parked in a handicap or other restricted parking zone
  • The vehicle has been abandoned and is blocking the flow of traffic
  • The vehicle is deemed to pose a danger to the safety of the general public
  • A law enforcement officer believes that criminal evidence is inside the vehicle

If you've been arrested for a DUI, your vehicle may be impounded automatically. If your vehicle has been impounded, don't think that there is nothing you can do about it. There are multiple legal options available to you revolving around why the authorities impounded your vehicle, and depending on the circumstances, you may be able to obtain financial compensation.

Contact a Seattle DUI attorney to discuss the circumstances surrounding your vehicle being impounded.
