Aggressive Defense Strategies with Your Future in Mind
A driver who causes an accident while operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol can be charged with multiple offenses. Not only can the driver be charged and held accountable for all vehicle and medical damages caused by the accident, he or she can be given tickets for any traffic violations and can be charged with DUI.
In recent years, laws have been and are being created to do everything possible to bring down the number of DUI accidents and to keep offenders off the roads. Our Maryland DUI accident lawyers at Alpert Schreyer Poe, LLC are keeping a close eye on new legislation so that we can best serve our clients who have been charged with these offenses.

What to Do after a DUI Accident
When you are involved in an accident because of driving while under the influence of alcohol, it is important to contact your insurance agent to figure out the specific details of your insurance policy in order to determine the severity of the rate hikes, what paperwork needs to be completed and submitted, and whether or not your insurance company will even continue to insure you.
Penalties for Drunk Driving Accidents
New stricter penalties for drunk driving are trying to send a message to drivers that getting behind the wheel after drinking is just not worth any of the risks. Taking the life of another or yourself, or being faced with thousands of dollars in fines and legal fees, and jail time is not worth it. Fines and punishments for first time offenders are becoming higher and stricter as well, with increased fees and even the possibility of jail time after just one DUI charge. A second or third offense can keep you off the roads for a long time and have you spending significant time behind bars. The penalties of a DUI charge on your driving and criminal record can follow you permanently. When applying for school or a new job, a DUI charge can be a major deterrent.
Consult with Our Professional Legal Team
The best way to avoid an accident caused by driving under the influence is to avoid driving under the influence completely. Plan ahead and have a designated driver or the telephone number for a cab ready. A cab ride home in the end will be a much cheaper option for you than a DUI charge. Be responsible and never allow yourself to be in a situation that could cause an accident that could seriously injure someone or even take the life of another human being because you were driving while under the influence of alcohol.
