DUI with Injury in Palm Beach
Accused of causing injury in a DUI accident?
It is often difficult to determine who is at fault for causing a car accident,
because it is frequently true that both drivers share some degree of liability
for the collision. Whether through speeding, unsafe lane changes or distracted
behaviors including cell phone use, more than one driver involved in an
accident could be partially responsible for the collision that resulted.
When it is discovered that one of the drivers has been drinking or has
taken drugs or medication, law enforcement officers frequently assume
that the intoxicated driver is the one who should be held responsible
for the crash. If you have found yourself in this situation, you can find
zealous legal representation to help you fight the charges by coming to
