How Serious Is A DWI?

A DWI can have more impact on you than you may realize. North Carolina has six different levels of DWI, which affect how severe the penalties are. Even at the lowest level, you could face fines, license suspension, and possible jail time. On top of that, your insurance rates will probably rise. The best course of action is to seek a criminal defense attorney as soon as you have been charged.

Ordinarily, the legal limit for blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08. However, DWI charges do not always involve alcohol, as a person may be charged with being appreciably impaired by any impairing substance, be it prescribed medication, over the counter medication, or illegal drugs. Penalties increase on a second or third DWI and it may be harder to get your license back, so it is crucial to have a skilled attorney on your side.
