My son had a car accident in July 2012. The hospital reported it to the DMV as him losing consciousness while driving and are threatening to suspend/revoke his driving privileges. He has never had a ticket or an accident or any medical issues. Ever. Therefore, he doesn't have an existing physician to complete their required medical form. What do I do? I need a referral to a 1) doctor to complete the form; and 2) an attorney to help handle this. I have the medical records from the hospital regarding the accident in question. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
You need a criminal atty who will also handle the administrative matter with the dmv. What county did the accident...
I was arrested for DUI. But there was some problems with the initial stop. Following is the report of the officer for the initial stop, I observed the defendant operating a Nissan armada at Some state road and some street. At this point I was behind the vehicle west bound on state road, when the driver abruptly applied his brakes and after slowing to a stop began a three point turn in the middle of the state road. After turning around the vehicle abruptly sped on the state road, at which time I attempted to stop the vehicle. Can anyone give their views on my chances of winning this motion to suppress?
A lot more information would be needed to give a fair estimation as too your chances. Consult with an experienced DUI...
I had been caught for first time DUI few months back in Pasco county, FL. I hired a DUI lawyer for that. My BAC came as .069 and urine test also clean. I did not do very good in the FST s as per the report but I am from a non English speaking country had some problems understanding the directions. No accidents no injury. Prosecution has offered to reduce it to reckless driving but following is the deal they have offered, 1. 12 months probation 2. 6 months DL suspension 3. 50 hours community service 4. 10 days vehicle immobilization 5. DUI school 6. Victim panel Should I accept this or is this too much?
I would highly suggest you follow your attorney's advice on this one. First blush is some of it is a little steep but...
The first time, he was arrested on site, and spent one week in jail waiting for court. He had fines to pay and time served. This time since he only received a ticket, he doesnt believe he is looking at jail time at all. I thought if you never got your license back from dui, and got a ticket for driving on suspended license there is mandatory jail time. Side note, his probation has terminated(he completed it before this event). I was wondering is he looking at jail, or more probation, or is he right that a ticket is just a ticket? Thank you for the help.
Very difficult to answer. He is not facing mandatory jail time. Whatever he is facing will be based on the attitude...
He had already received a ticket, for driving on suspended license, following his dui. Instead of jail time, he was told he was facing week in jail, they put him on probation. He told his officer on his next visit and was told he will violate him at the end of the month and issue a warrant for his arrest. I was wondering how much jail time is typical for violating probation, and also is jail time necessary for getting 2 tickets for driving on suspended license after a dui. Thank you in advance.
He can get up to 6 months county jail on the DUI charge, up to 60 days on the 1st Suspended License Charge (assuming it...
I want to hire new counsel due to the fact that I believe he hasn't done his job to his best abilities. So many stones were unturned during this whole process which has been ongoing for four years now and I'm now losing confidence. If I do I fact hire a new attorney would the judge rehear the motion to suppress the blood since there were no signs of impairment from the paramedics, doctors, or officers? When the blood was drawn there was no notification a death had occurred and no warrant. I need help and I need it fast with someone who has tried Dui manslaughter cases (which my current attorney has but hasn't been really successful) I believe he is going through personal issues and is not devoting his time towards something that can ruin my entire life.
You have the absolute right to hire new counsel and fire your current attorney for any reason. You should, however,...
At the suppression hearing my attorney was good enough to make the Judge rule against us not based on based on me giving consent to draw blood at the hospital. But she didn't want to rule whether cops had probable cause which they didn't ( no blood shot eyes, odor of alcohol from the paramedics police or doctors). She ruled that I gave a nod to the officer who was requesting the blood draw (I was in a neck brace didn't say a word and there was no signature from me stating I agreed to the draw). Now I came across a picture after the accident of my face which was unrecognizable with trauma to my head and face. My attorney told me the judge will not review the suppression (no motion was even filed) but I wanted to know what if anything I could possibly do. I am considering releasing counsel
i am not sure why you think this late discovered photograph changes anything. if you were conscious at the time the...
