Collin County DWID Lawyer

DWI Cases Involving Drug Use

It is a well-known fact that driving under the influence of alcohol can lead to a conviction of DWI. However, alcohol is not the only thing which can impair driving. Some prescription drugs as well as illegal substances such as marijuana, cocaine, and heroin, can also cause a person to be unfit to get behind the wheel of the car.

If you were pulled over for suspected drunk driving and then place under arrest for driving while under the influence of drugs, your first step should be to contact a skilled Collin County DWI attorney from my team at The Law Office of Troy P. Burleson. I have handled over 400 trials and represented hundreds of clients throughout the area.

Detecting Substance Abuse

You can be arrested for DWI if you were found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.08%. However, how does law enforcement test for drug consumption before driving? There are specially trained Drug Recognition Experts who understand how to notice the signs of drug use and there are field sobriety tests which can also be used to determine whether they are under the influence of any substance. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has found that approximately 10 million people in the U.S. drive under the influence of drugs every year. It was also found that one out of every car accident fatality was found with drugs in their systems.

Obtaining Proper Legal Representation

Are you looking for a DWI attorney in Collin County? Whether you were accused of DWI, felony DWI, or vehicular manslaughter, please do not hesitate to get in touch with my firm. My team will fight tirelessly for your rights and seek to get your charges reduced or even dropped. I understand that not everyone who is accused of this crime is guilty and I also understand that not everyone is treated fairly by the justice department.
