Drunk Driving Causing An Accident

Drunk Driving Causing An Accident

Drunk driving causing an accident is a crime that does not have a separate or “special” designation under Michigan law. However, almost every judge asks “was there an accident” when he or she learns that a person before the court has drunk driving charges. It is this development that charges emotions and usually causes a judge to give consideration to jail time for a DUI. Drunk driving causing an accident requires serious representation. Two of our DUI lawyers, Mike Nichols and Karen Phillips, are certified by the manufacturer of the breath test device used in Michigan as competent in the theory and operation of the Datamaster. If you need a Michigan law firm that is committed to results and will unturn each and every stone, call the Nichols Law Firm in East Lansing at 517.432.9000 or mnichols@nicholslaw.net today!
