Drunk Driving Attorney Schererville

Drunk driving incidents can have serious consequences. Drunk driving can result in death, serious injury, or, at best, difficult legal and financial trouble. If you are involved in a drunk driving incident, you’ll need an attorney who understands the issue well and has the experience to handle your case. Whether it is your first drunk driving incident or you have previous violations, our experienced lawyers can help you through it. 

Drunk Driving Injuries and Fatalities

Statistics show Indiana drunk drivers are slightly above the national average for BAC of .15 or higher. Indiana drivers account for approximately one percent of all drunk driving arrests, a relatively small number. However, Indiana accounts for a disproportionate number of fatality accidents. This number is even more significant when considering the number of fatality accidents involving an exceedingly high BAC. 

Legal and Financial Consequences

According to American Addiction Centers, the financial impacts of drunk driving can be catastrophic. In most states, if arrested for drunk driving, you can expect to be jailed and required to post bond. This cost can range from $100-$2,500 and is only the first step in the process. Likely, you will also have your vehicle towed and impounded. The cost for this can range from $100-$1200. Next, you’ll need an attorney. First-time offenses typically range from $1,500-$5,000 and can double for subsequent offenses. Additionally, court costs and fines are likely to bring the price up another $400-$2,000 for a first offense. Depending on the state, additional “driver responsibility fees” may be assessed, which can be as much as $2,500. In total, a first-time D.U.I. may cost as much as $15,000. 

The financial cost is one factor, but equally detrimental is a criminal record that will follow you for years. Many employers and other organizations take drunk driving very seriously. In addition to the direct costs of a D.U.I., you may also lose access to certain employment opportunities, lose current employment, and be overlooked for volunteer or other positions you may seek in the future. This is especially true where the job or opportunity you seek requires a driver’s license. In most cases, drunk drivers will lose their license for a period of time. However, our lawyers can help with these issues to ensure your drunk driving charge has the least possible impact on your future. Don’t let a drunk driving charge have a greater impact on your future than is necessary.
