San Diego DUI Accidents
Information from Top Defense Attorneys in San Diego, CA
Our team at The Law Offices of Kerry L. Armstrong, APLC has handled many
DUI cases involving motor vehicle accidents. Our experience has taught us
that in some situations, sober drivers are falsely accused of DUI because
of their reactions after the collision.
When a person is involved in an accident, they may immediately become disoriented
and confused as a result of injuries or the accident itself. If a person
has never been involved in an accident before, they may react in a way
that could possibly lead an officer on the scene to believe that they
are intoxicated. When asked to complete a
field sobriety test, the individual may be so nervous and shaken up from the accident that
they are unable to comply.
While common suggests that these behaviors are a normal reaction to a car
accident, a police officer may blame it on alcohol or
drugs. After being arrested and taken back to the station, you may be asked
to take a
breath or chemical test. Again, being disoriented and unsure of what is truly going on, you may
refuse the test. Again, an officer will take this as a sign of intoxication
and you could be charged with driving under the influence.
As a result of an accident that is allegedly caused by DUI, a person may face
license suspension, imprisonment and fines. If you have been accused of a similar situation,
immediately talk to a
