It’s a Friday night and you’re driving home after a rough week and a couple of hours spending time with friends at the bar. After a few beers, you hit the road. It’s dark, you’ve had too much to drink and all of a sudden you drive through a stop sign and hit another vehicle.
Before you know it, a police officer arrives and you find yourself staring down the law.
You need the help that DWI/DUI lawyer Michael Anzalone can offer.How Serious is a DWI Crash?
A traffic crash involving a drunk driver is a serious offense in New Hampshire. If a police officer suspects you of driving drunk, he or she will probably ask you to step out of your vehicle and undergo one or more field sobriety tests.
In New Hampshire, anyone is considered over the legal limit to drive if their blood alcohol content is 0.08 or higher (that’s 0.02 or higher for anyone under the age of 21).
If you are drunk and caused the crash, you may face multiple charges. You also may have a personal injury lawsuit brought against you by the other crash victims. If you are found to have caused the accident due to your negligence, you may be on the hook for money damages.
Again, you’ll need to seek the advice of attorney Michael Anzalone, who is well-versed in DWI-related offenses. He will make your case a priority and will seek to get you the help you need.
You may wonder if you’ll ever be allowed to drive again if you have a DWI-related accident, especially if you injure someone in the crash.
Drunk driving offenses are considered serious in New Hampshire. And you can rest assured you will lose driving privileges for some time if you are convicted. But at some point, you’ll be allowed to get your driver’s license back. But you’ll have to stay out of trouble and complete any conditions the judge imposes. For example, someone who has been involved in a drunk driving accident will probably be required to attend an impaired drivers class and may even be ordered into some kind of drug or alcohol rehab. Of course, much of this depends on factors such as your previous driving record, whether you’ve been arrested on similar charges before and anything else the judge considers relevant, such as any points on your license.
If you cause an accident in New Hampshire while on either drugs or alcohol, you will spend at least a little bit of time in jail. But even a first offense can result in the loss of your driving rights for anywhere between 90 days and two years.
