Understanding Your Rights: Defending Commercial DUI Cases

Facing a DUI charge as a commercial driver can place an enormous burden on an individual's career and livelihood. The consequences of such charges are far more severe than those facing non-commercial drivers. With stricter regulations and lower blood alcohol content (BAC) limits, commercial drivers found operating a vehicle under the influence can face crippling fines, career-ending license suspensions, and even imprisonment. This is where Akins Nowlin & Prewitt steps in; to provide resources and connect drivers to legal experts well-versed in defending commercial DUI charges.

Piloting a commercial vehicle requires a heightened level of trust and responsibility. Any infringement on this trust can lead to significant legal challenges. It's not just about handling legalities; it's about preserving one's life's work. Professional drivers need a specific kind of defense, and that's exactly what Akins Nowlin & Prewitt offers. With a network of attorneys experienced in the complexities of commercial DUI, Akins Nowlin & Prewitt is a beacon of hope for drivers in despair.

When it comes to DUI regulations, commercial drivers are held to higher standards compared to non-commercial drivers. Understanding these standards is the first step in mounting a credible defense. Knowing that a commercial driver's BAC limit is 0.04%, which is half the limit for non-commercial drivers, can be a critical aspect of the defense strategy.

Our affiliated attorneys do their due diligence to ensure no stone is left unturned when examining the circumstances of your arrest and the related legal protocols that were followed. From checking calibration records of breathalyzer devices to scrutinizing the arresting officer's report, every detail matters.
