The many consequences of drunk driving cases

Many different consequences can come from driving while you are drunk that may have far-reaching implications for your future. Before you make the decision to drive after drinking, think about all the trouble you could be bringing on yourself.

For example, one thing that you are going to have to deal with if you are caught driving drunk is the financial repercussions. You are naturally going to have legal fees, but your financial liability doesn't end there. You may also have to pay fines and the cost to repair or replace damaged property. There is a chance that you will pay for damages in a civil case.

There is also the possibility that you will lose your job, which can also have a negative impact on your finances. Your insurance payments might increase because of the drunk driving, and you might end up dinging your credit -- which can cost you thousands in extra interest.

On top of the financial consequences of drunk driving, you also have to think about how your mental and emotional health. There is a chance that you will feel anxiety and injuries if you are in a crash. If someone is hurt in the crash, you may feel upset about that when you know that you were the cause of the wreck.

The legal matters that you will face can add to the stress. You may have to answer a criminal case, an administrative matter and a civil claim. These can't be handled together, so you have quite a bit of work to do. Getting started quickly gives you as much time as possible to figure everything out so you can move forward with your chosen strategies.
