Building a Defense in Your Favor

When these cases go to trial, prosecutors are relentless in their pursuit of a conviction when fatal accidents are the cause of alcohol consumption. They will look to all of the available evidence to lay blame on a possibly intoxicated driver, as there is often bias in the justice system. Therefore, the investigation may resort to hurried and swift accusations.

Prosecutors must prove the following:

  • If the driver was aged 21 or older, and had a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or above
  • If the driver was under the age of 21, and had a BAC of 0.05% or higher
  • The driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident and committed a misdemeanor or another
  • The driver committed an illegal act that may have led to negligence, and subsequently caused the death of another person
