Lawyer For DUI Accident Offenses

If you were in a car accident in Missouri or Kansas and the police are investigating whether you were intoxicated at the scene, or if you have already been charged with DUI or DWI following an accident, you need legal help now.

I Don't Just Fight For The Best Deal. I Fight For Your Freedom.

I am criminal defense lawyer Craig Divine, founder of Divine Law Office, LLC, in Kansas City. Being charged with drinking and driving at the scene of a motor vehicle means you may be facing full civil and criminal liability for damages. In the event the other driver or any passengers (including your own) were injured or died as a result, you face felony vehicular assault or vehicular homicide charges. I will aggressively fight to protect your rights from unwarranted charges.

Charges And Penalties For A Drunk Driving Accident Offense

An intoxicated driver may be charged with vehicular assault if the other driver or any passenger in either vehicle suffers an injury. In both Kansas and Missouri, vehicular assault is charged as a class C felony and can result in a prison sentence up to seven years and a fine up to $5,000.

Vehicular Homicide

A DUI driver causing an accident resulting in the death of another person may face a charge of felony involuntary manslaughter in Kansas and Missouri. Maximum penalties can include up to 15 years in prison.

Civil Liability

If you are convicted of a criminal offense for causing a DUI accident, you will be held liable for serious civil damages, including possible personal injury lawsuits in excess of your auto insurance policy coverage. Keeping a criminal charge off your record is the best way to avoid certain civil liability.
