DUI Car Accidents | Victims of DUI
The St. Petersburg Car Accident Attorneys at Whittel & Melton are all former DUI prosecutors and Assistant State Attorneys. This perspective gives us a distinct advantage in handling car accident cases our client has been hit or killed by an impaired driver.
DUI cases are extremely unique under Florida law because they may involve scientific evidence, which is heavily regulated by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE). If the proper procedures aren’t followed by law enforcement when they obtain a breath sample or a blood sample, the evidence may be inadmissible at court--which essentially eviscerates a criminal DUI charge and will unfavorably impact a civil action taken by a victim of a St. Petersburg DUI crash.
You need an attorney who understands DUI so that your rights are protected as you seek justice for the negligence of a DUI driver.
