Were You Involved in a DUI Accident?
Our Santa Clarita Attorneys Fight to Defend Your Rights
When an arrest is made at the scene of an accident for driving under the
influence (DUI), devastating consequences could result, especially if
there were injuries or fatalities. If you or someone you care about has
recently been in an accident and arrested for DUI, you will need to obtain
the services of our seasoned
Santa Clarita DUI lawyers.
If convicted, you will likely face
penalties for a DUI
- Loss of your driving privileges
- Mandatory substance abuse program or classes
- Community service
- Adverse impact on your legal record
The impact on your criminal record can have long-lasting implications.
It can make it very difficult to find and maintain employment, as well
as limit your housing options, as anyone who conducts a simple background
check will be able to see past arrests, charges, and convictions.
It is vitally important that you do not wait to speak with an attorney.
After a DUI arrest is made,
you will have only 10 days (after the date of your arrest) to request a
DMV hearing. If you do not make this request, your right to this hearing will be waived
and your driver's license will be automatically suspended. You also
speak with your lawyer before answering questions that law enforcement
or prosecutors may have for you. You have the right to remain silent and
you should exercise this right.
