The number one cause of most motor vehicle accidents is negligence. Negligence is legally defined as the failure to act with the same amount of caution and care a normal person would exercise in the same situation. To discuss your rights after a drunk driving accident arrest, and how to protect them, you can email Ms. Landry and her staff here.

Common negligent driving behaviors include:
- Disobeying traffic signs
- Disobeying traffic laws
- Talking to other passengers
- Talking on cell phones
- Driving under the influence
When people drive under the influence, they not only endanger themselves, but also the lives of others. People who drive under the influence cause numerous fatal accidents each year. For this reason, people who are facing DUI/DWI Accident charges may be susceptible to serious legal consequences if they are convicted.

You Only Have 10 Days!
If you do not act immediately, you could lose your right to drive.
When you are arrested for DUI, the arresting officer will confiscate your driver’s license and give you a “notice of suspension” that will serve as a temporary license. California law requires you to choose between a breath or blood test if lawfully arrested.
If you failed to complete or declined/refused a breath test or blood test, the DMV will begin suspension proceedings starting on the 31st day after your arrest.
You must contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest in order to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license, or it will be suspended regardless of the outcome of your case.
We handle making these arrangements for our clients.
The DMV hearing and your criminal case are two entirely separate parts to your DUI charges. Even if you are not found guilty of DUI, you could still lose your license depending upon how the DMV hearing goes.
Your Orange County lawyer will be able to represent your interests in your DMV hearing to help ensure that you have the best chance at keeping your driving privileges.
If keeping your license is important to you, you should speak immediately with an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer to discuss your options and to learn how your right to drive can be protected.
