Because of public interest, DWI cases are often showcased in the media. Usually, the news is quick to point out accidents caused by drunk drivers. However, they don’t highlight other cases.
News and DWI Arrests
While drunk drivers are a public safety threat, many people arrested for drunk driving are caught because someone ran into them. Strangely, this type of case does not get much coverage, it shows bias. In addition, many of our clients are the ones who call the police to get an accident report. For example, they are sitting in traffic and get rear-ended. Because they want an accident report, they call 911. Although they felt fine to drive, they still get arrested and put in a police car.
People charged with DWI are not all monsters like the news shows them. Rather, many are just ordinary, hardworking people just like you. However, being charged with DWI is not the end of the world. Instead, having an experienced lawyer can help you make good decisions about your case. When a person’s case is dismissed or they are found not guilty, the weight of the DWI is lifted. But even if they don’t have their case go away, they will still be okay. After all, every one makes mistakes in life and should be forgiven if they learn from it. Either way, we will help get you through this ordeal.
So the next time you hear about an accident caused by a drunk driver, don’t jump to conclusions. Just remember that all people accused of drunk driving are bad people. In fact, most are folks who have a drink with dinner or a beer at the game. Furthermore, they are responsible people who would never take a chance if they felt unsafe to drive. In addition, the news need viewers, so they tend to make mountains out of mole hills. Don’t be fooled. And don’t be so quick to judge others as you could find yourself in the same situation one day.
