Drunk driving claim after Missouri crash with serious injuries

It may be difficult to accurately estimate the number people who been saved from serious injuries or from losing their lives due to the use of safety belts. Though many people in Missouri benefit from these safety devices, they are only effective if a driver or passenger chooses to utilize them. Unfortunately, a man in Missouri now faces accusations of drunk driving and other related charges following a crash that left a passenger in his vehicle -- who was not wearing a safety belt -- suffering serious injuries.

The incident is said to have happened on a Saturday morning in mid-July. According to reports, a 44-year-old man was driving on a Missouri road. Unfortunately, he was allegedly unable to negotiate a turn, causing his vehicle to exit the roadway.

The vehicle went over an embankment before flipping multiple times. While the driver only suffered minor injuries, his 52-year-old female passenger is listed in serious condition. The man now faces criminal accusations, including felony DWI causing serious physical injury.

The man now faces several significant decisions as a result of the drunk driving allegations against him. Unfortunately, people without legal training may not fully understand the implications of the case against them or their legal options. However, there are professionals with experience responding to criminal allegations who can help defendants as they navigate the justice system. Often, having such a professional on their side can help reduce some of the stress often associated with making decisions that will ultimately impact the rest of someone's life.
