Coraopolis DUI Attorney

If you have been charged with a DUI or Driving Under the Influence, you’re likely worried and stressed. Securing the services of a capable Coraopolis DUI attorney can not only help you fight the charges but give you the clarity you need to limit the impact of these charges on your life.

What If I Was in an Accident While Driving Under the Influence?

For everyone involved, getting into an alcohol-related accident is distressing. No one intends to hurt someone when they get behind the wheel.  Even if you caused the accident, you deserve to be treated with respect and to have peace of mind.

At Wyland Law Group, we will mount a strong defense for you and ensure that you are fully informed about what you should expect at every step of the process. One of the initial things you’ll want to know is what the penalties are for the DUI charges you’re facing.

What Are the Penalties for Causing an Accident While DUI?

If you had a blood alcohol level between 0.08 and 0.159% and caused an accident, you’ll be charged with tier two DUI. If this is your first offense, then the penalties are:

  • 2 days to 6 months of prison time
  • Additional 12-month license suspension
  • Fine of $500 to $5,000
  • M grade charge

If your blood alcohol level was higher, or you have previous DUI convictions in the last ten years, you’ll face more severe penalties.

For a third offense, the penalties are:
