DUI Related Accidents

dui accident

Due to an increase in DUI related accidents in recent years, the California legislature has passed increasingly strict DUI laws. Regardless of whether or not the individual is a first time DUI offender, he or she is subject to a variety of harsh legal consequences if convicted. In cases where an individual caused an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, that person may be arraigned on a heightened charge or may face penalty enhancements upon sentencing.

The legal penalties associated with DUI accidents are severe. If an individual is convicted of causing an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he or she may be subject to a variety of penalties including imprisonment, probation, monetary fines, community services, DUI School, vehicle impoundment, and driver’s license suspension. In addition, individuals convicted of causing an accident while driving under the influence will receive a negative mark on their criminal record which can affect an individual’s future housing, employment, and educational opportunities.

If you have been involved in an accident while driving and the police claim you were under the influence, it is in your best interest to consult with a knowledgeable California DUI defense lawyer who specializes in DUI accidents at once.

"Derek is a competent professional lawyer who knows how to get things done without the bureaucratic process found at most firms. I was in need of help quickly and Derek stepped up right away with the know how and tenacity to tackle any problem. I felt completely comfortable being out of town and having Derek take care of my issue and he solved it with ease. I recommend him greatly and would absolutely work with him in the future." Dan F


"After being cited for a Misdemeanor DUI, I was influenced by many to just face the consequences because "hiring a lawyer never works out in your benefit". I was terrified and confused until I met Mr. Devermont so I decided to take my chances. He assured me that I didn't have to worry anymore, and even at times where I wanted to give up he fought harder. My BAC was .11 but Derek managed to get my citation reduced to a dry reckless. I would highly recommend him to anyone!" Kelly B


"Derek Devermont is the best DUI lawyer anyone can ever ask for. Not only is he competent and industrious, Derek would go the extra mile for his clients to ensure the best possible outcome. I was unfortunately charged with DUI when I was 20 years old. Without me doing anything (appear in court, speak to the judge, etc), Derek won the case for me. Derek's favorite saying goes like this "don't worry, leave the worrying to me. I'm your lawyer." Thanks to Derek, I was able to keep my driving privileges, and preserve my life. He secured a not guilty verdict and erased any license suspension. " Jennifer F
