The significant devastation to victims and property arising from a DUI accident has resulted in serious penalties being handed down by the court system. Each year, hundreds of individuals in Colorado die as a result of DUI accidents, which have the court system to hand down harsher penalties for convicted offenders that may include prison incarceration and driver’s license revocation. Even in DUI accidents that do not involve injury to a person or persons, the criminal and civil penalties are substantial. It’s possible to face multiple charges from a DUI accident even if no one was injured. Property damage alone can incur serious charges that have the potential to destroy the defendant’s life, due to incarceration, parole, assessment of court fines and punitive damages paid directly to the victim. Anyone involved in a DUI accident needs needs qualified legal representation. Contact a Boulder CO DUI Attorney today for a free consultation.
