Drunk driving convictions have long-lasting impacts

On Behalf of | Mar 3, 2017 | Drunk Driving

Drunk driving charges are very serious charges that can have very serious impacts that go far beyond the court-imposed penalties if you are found guilty. One of the ways that you might be impacted is through your insurance. When you have a DUI on your record, your insurance rates are likely going to increase. This might not happen right away, but when the insurance company sees the drunk driving hit on your driving record, it will likely happen.

We know that you might want to know exactly how the case might impact your future. There isn’t really any solid answer to that. We can help you to think about some of the ways that you might be affected by a conviction. As we just said, this can include changes to your auto insurance.

There are other ways that a conviction might impact your life. One of these is that you might find that it is harder to find a job. If a potential employer checks your driving record or if you have to be covered on the company’s car insurance, you might not be able to do what you need to do because of the drunk driving conviction.

We can help you to learn about ways to fight the charges. There isn’t any one-size-fits-all answer to drunk driving charges. Instead, we have to look at what happened leading up to the charge. We have to look at what the facts of the case against you say. From there, we can try to determine how to answer the points that are important to your case.
