About Palm City DUI Charges

Contacting a DUI attorney is one of the most important things you can do in the face of drunk driving charges in the Palm City area. You may be in danger of losing your driver’s license and may also be at risk of facing imprisonment. If you are convicted, you may face life with a criminal record, something that will forever influence employment, financial and housing opportunities and may therefore not only have a negative impact on you but on your family as well.

DUI is a highly specific area of criminal law. These charges occur when a driver is arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance. Under Florida law, this means that the driver was operating a vehicle on a public roadway while he or she had a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater or while his or her normal abilities were impaired by alcohol or drugs. At times, even prescription or over-the-counter medication may result in DUI charges, if the driver’s abilities were impaired by one of these.

To prove that a driver is “under the influence” Palm City law enforcement will rely upon breath or blood test results or a driver’s performance on field sobriety tests. If you work with an experienced DUI lawyer, he or she may be able to successfully challenge this evidence against you. Although your case may seem difficult to win or even entirely helpless, with the proper approach your attorney may be able to prove:

  • Your breath test results should be inadmissible;
  • Your blood test was inaccurate and should not be used against you;
  • Field sobriety testing was improperly administered;
  • You were unlawfully arrested; or
  • The circumstances of the initial police stop that then led to your arrest were improper (i.e. probable cause was not established).
