Different factors can impact a drunk driving defense

In our previous blog post, we discussed how drunk driving laws in Kentucky are strict. The fact is that all states are taking a tough stance against drunk driving simply because the effects of this crime are so horrendous. Whether you are facing drunk driving charges in Kentucky or Tennessee, we are here to help you learn how you can fight against these charges.

When you are pulled over for the suspicion of drunk driving, you need to be as aware as possible about what is going on. We need to discuss the reason you were stopped and other factors with you, so try to remember important points as you move through the stop and the arrest.

There are some drunk driving cases that can be fought by calling civil rights violations out. This isn’t always the case, but this possibility is why you need to remain aware so that we can determine if any of these occur.

Another point that we need to look into is how your blood alcohol concentration was obtained. How long it took to get the sample in question can also have an impact because of the way alcohol metabolizes in the body. We can look into these points as we work on your defense against charges stemming from impaired driving.

A drunk driving conviction can have serious impacts on your employability, as well as other aspects of your life. Understanding these points can help you to see why having a defense strategy in place as you fight the charges is so important. The last thing you need is to go into a court proceeding clueless about what is going on and how you can respond.
