In the aftermath of your DUI charge, you want to understand how your life changes after your encounter with Florida law enforcement. How should you prepare yourself?
Absolute Advocacy provides potential outcomes for those with a drunk driving charge. Get ahead of the legal, financial and mental fallout.
Did you harm another person while intoxicated behind the wheel? If so, you may face a civil lawsuit. Spending so much time in court for your criminal charge and the legal action may wear on you psychologically.
Opportunities for employment
While having a DUI does not disqualify you from every position, you may struggle to slide and glide your way through the hiring process. Understand your rights as a job candidate with a criminal record and learn how to explain your charge to employers while demonstrating a willingness to learn from your actions.
The next time you renew your car insurance, expect your provider to notice your DUI and deem you a risky driver. Prepare for higher premiums, but your current insurance agent may drop you entirely. In case that happens, research alternative car insurance companies willing to cover drivers with a DUI.
Emotional and mental health
Do not neglect to take care of your mental and emotional health while navigating life with a drunk driving charge. Depending on how things go, you may benefit from seeing a therapist for any anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder or panic you experience.
Your DUI charge may alter your life in ways you cannot anticipate. Throughout everything, do the right thing for yourself and your future.
