DUI charge follows fatal accident in Fresno

California drivers who are booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol may find that there are immediate consequences to such charges. Even before an accused person has had the opportunity to defend him or herself, employers, friends and even family members can pass judgment and proceed with punishment. Having an experienced attorney to defend a DUI charge in the court can limit the consequences.

A fatal accident in Fresno recently led to the arrest of a driver suspected of being impaired. According to a California Highway Patrol report, this driver was southbound on a local roadway when he allegedly disregarded a red traffic light. As he entered the intersection, he reportedly smashed into the passenger side of a westbound vehicle.

The impact reportedly caused the death of a 23-year-old passenger in the westbound car. The driver of that car was rushed to a medical center with serious injuries. The alleged drunk driver's injuries were described as minor. He will now be facing DUI charges.

When an individual in California retains the services of an experienced attorney to defend a DUI charge, his or her legal rights will be protected throughout the proceedings. A lawyer will advocate on behalf of the client during any interviews or plea negotiations that may be offered. The attorney will scrutinize the charges and the evidence held by the prosecution, and he or she will determine which aspects can be challenged in court if the case goes to trial. Whichever route is determined most appropriate to proceed, the attorney will endeavor to achieve the best possible outcome.
