Are you prepared for the financial fallout of a DUI?

One of the most punishing aspects to a drunk driving charge is the financial hit that the accused person takes in the wake of the charge. The jail time and the court penalties are important factors too -- but the financial hardship that people with a DUI often endure can cause far more stress and anxiety than any legal punishment.

Let's look at some of the many different financial penalties a person with a DUI has to deal with after a drunk driving arrest:

  • Your car will be towed and impounded after the arrest. Both of these things will cost a lot of money -- potentially thousands of dollars.
  • You will have some post-conviction processes to deal with. Alcohol therapy, ignition interlock, probation supervision, license renewal -- all of these things will cost you a pretty penny.
  • The legal costs will mount in the wake of a DUI. There will be fees for going to court, fees for any jail time, fees for going through sentencing, and also money for bail.
  • Your insurance premiums will go way up, and they will often stay inflated for many years after the DUI. You will also need to take alternate forms of transportation in the immediate aftermath of the DUI.

Ultimately this post is a warning. If you have been accused of a drunk driving offense, you stand to lose a lot. Stand up for your rights and consult with an attorney as soon as possible.
