DUI & Drugs

DUI & Drugs Lawyer in Fort Lauderdale

Even prescription drugs can result in a DUI arrest!

In Florida, like in many states, you can be arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. If you were charged with driving under the influence of drugs you are likely facing serious penalties. It is often difficult to prove that a person was driving under the influence of drugs because a simple breath test cannot accurately inform an officer of this. Problems often arise when officers make false assumptions about people that they believe are driving under the influence of drugs. Many times people are simply taking prescription medication that can warrant a search by police officers of the person and vehicle.

It does not matter whether or not the drugs you were on at the time of the accident were illegal or prescribed. If an officer believed that the drugs you were on impaired your ability to drive, then he or she will likely charge you with driving under the influence of drugs. In Florida, drivers operate under implied consent. This means that when any driver signs up for a driver's license, they are agreeing to subject themselves to a blood, breath or urine test if an officer makes an arrest on suspicion of drugs. Refusal to take any of these tests can result in an automatic license suspension. You have every right to appeal these charges and your suspension, but you only have 10 days and need the help of a skilled attorney who can prove that drugs did not impair your ability to drive in the situation.
