If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times: Driving while intoxicated is one thing, but causing an accident while impaired brings in a whole new set of complications when defending a charge of DWI or drug DUI. This makes complete sense, especially to those who have been arrested for causing a traffic accident while drunk behind the wheel.
As New Jersey drunken driving defense lawyers, I and my staff are prepared to see just about anything in terms of police arrests on Garden State roadways. As experienced drunk driving attorneys, we have represented many clients accused of drunk driving in Hudson, Ocean, Essex and Monmouth County, some of who have actually been accused of causing a DWI-related auto accident.
One thing we don’t usually see is a person involved in a traffic wreck going home and then getting arrested for being drunk later in the day. It sounds hard to believe, or maybe it’s not. But according to recent news reports, this actually happened to one man from Monmouth County.
