An affirmative defense can work for a DUI

Getting charged with a DUI is a shock, and you probably want to immediately do everything you can to get out of the risk of a conviction. Don't let your fear of getting into trouble make you admit to wrongdoing or say something that incriminates you. The best thing to do after an arrest is simply to stay quiet and seek the help of your attorney.

How can you get hurt by an airbag?

In a car accident, one of the injuries you might suffer from comes from the impact against the airbag. Airbag injuries can cause serious injuries, which is why you should always sit as far back from the airbag as possible when you drive. If an airbag doesn't work as intended, you could end up with serious injuries or be killed.

What should you do if you're hurt in a hit-and-run crash?

After a hit-and-run crash takes place, there are a few things you can do as a victim to help protect yourself and your rights. The most important thing to do is to remember the make, model and color of the vehicle. If you can obtain the license plate number, do so. If you're injured and unable to collect that information, witnesses nearby may have the information and give it to police. If you talk to others around you, it's a good idea to ask them to stay at the scene until the police arrive.

Drug addiction treatment versus prison: An examination

As someone who has been accused of using drugs, you're in a difficult position. You know that without a strong defense, you'll be at the mercy of the court and prosecutor. Even with a defense, there's a chance you'll still end up facing penalties.

Fighting legal malpractice means trusting a new attorney

As someone who has already faced a traumatic incident, the fact that you don't think your attorney paid enough attention to your case or did his or her best to represent you could make you furious. There are situations in which attorneys don't do their best for their clients, and in those cases, the clients may have a right to file a legal malpractice lawsuit.

The importance of a defense attorney can't be understated

A defense attorney has an important job. He or she is on your side, knows the law and knows what it takes to win your case. In the event that the case isn't able to be won, your attorney knows other alternatives to facing serious penalties, which makes it easier for you to get a plea deal or to fight for a lesser penalty.
