A Serious Defense For Serious Charges Following An OWI Accident

Wisconsin law enforcement takes an aggressive stance toward alleged incidents of drugged or drunk driving. Prosecutors may bring heightened charges in certain situations where:

  • An impaired driver gets into an accident that kills or seriously injures someone
  • An impaired driver has a minor child (under age 16) in the car

These charges can lead to severe penalties if there is a conviction, including heavy fines, a suspended driver's license or time in prison. At the Law Office of Stephen M.

What Is An Affirmative Defense To OWI Accident Charges?

To obtain a conviction, prosecutors must establish a causal connection between the impairment and the accident. If the accident was not your fault, you may be able to pursue an affirmative defense. In other words, if you did not cause the accident, you can use these facts as a strong defense. This is true even if you were intoxicated at the time of the collision.

Attorney Govin has developed a close working relationship with accident reconstructionist and other experts throughout Wisconsin. He will leverage their knowledge to gather objective, independent advice to determine whether affirmative defense is a viable strategy for your case.
