DUI with Injuries

DUI Lawyer in Colorado Springs

The state of Colorado takes driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs very seriously. If the blood-alcohol content (BAC) in your system proves to be between 0.5% and 0.8%, you will be charged with a DWAI, driving while ability impaired. If the BAC is 0.8% or greater, you will be charged with a DUI, which means driving under the influence, a considerably more severe offense. Regardless of how high the percentage of alcohol is in a person's body while driving , if the offender injures an individual in the process, it is considered a DUI with injury, also known as vehicular assault. The consequences can be extreme. That is why if you were charged with such an offense, you must contact my office, The Samuelson Law Firm, to get immediate legal representation.
