Dallas DWID Attorney

Dallas DWID Attorney

If you have been accused of Driving While Intoxicated by Drugs, you will be facing the same penalties as those who are accused of drunk driving. Fortunately, this charge is often easier on your Dallas DWI attorney because there are less tests to accurately measure a person’s intoxication by drug use.

One of the biggest pieces of evidence that can be used against a person accused of DWID is the person’s attempts at explaining the drug use. Many people will tell the officer that the drug is a prescription, but this can only be used against you as the use of any substance that can affect your driving abilities is against the law, even if it was legally prescribed. If the police failed to read you your rights though, this evidence cannot be used against you. Additionally, if your Dallas DWI lawyer can show that the prescription you were taking is not known for affecting people’s driving habits, you may be able to have the case dropped.

While we urge all of our clients to decline to take a field sobriety test when arrested, it was not developed to be used to measure drug intoxication. If the police attempt to use this as evidence against you in court, your Dallas DWI attorney will be able to prove that it is not approved for use in drug-related driving offenses.

Our DWI Lawyer Will Fight Chemical Test Results

As for chemical tests, breathalyzers cannot measure a person’s intoxication level based on drug use and urine tests are highly inaccurate because they may register drugs that left your system long before you were arrested for driving under the influence. If the main evidence against you relies on a failed urine test, we will fight to prove how unreliable this test is.
