DWI Case Types

It’s an unfortunate reality that many people don’t realize that “DWI” does not mean just one thing. It actually covers wide variety of different charges, which range depending on the situation at hand. For example, someone who gets a DWI after hitting another car is not going to face the same situation and someone who gets a DWI due to suspicious driving.

This misunderstanding is something that causes a lot of people to think that there is only one consequence for one charge. There are actually a lot of different consequences that vary in severity based on the exact charges that are attached to the DWI. Extenuating circumstances can change everything, which is why each case is unique and different.

Types of DWIs

When someone is charged with a DWI, there are generally other charges that are included with that to make it unique for that specific situation. Each of these come with their own consequences, which means that no two people are treated the same when they are charged for a DWI.

The different charges that can be attached to a DWI include:

  • Drugs and DWI
  • Aggravated DWI
  • DWI accident
  • DWI causing an injury
  • DWI causing vehicular manslaughter

Although each of these charges are different, they all result in extremely serious consequences in any state. These are serious, severe and can change your future within minutes. This is why it’s so important to hire professional legal assistance to help with the defense. Without the help of a trained professional you could end up in a worse position than you anticipated.

It’s important to secure a lawyer as soon as you get charged for anything related to a DWI. The sooner you do this, the better off you will be. Legal defense is the one thing you are allowed, so take advantage of the professionals out there who can help you throughout the entire process.
