Missouri accident causes serious injuries, DWI accusations

When accused of a crime, there are multiple decisions that must be made that will likely have a significant impact on the rest of a person's life. While handling this situation alone is difficult enough, having injuries on top of such an already stressful situation can create even more difficulties. For example, a man in Missouri is now left to make major decisions after he was charged with DWI, all while recovering from serious injuries he suffered in a car accident.

That accident that led to the charges reportedly happened on a Monday afternoon in March. Police say that the 33-year-old man was driving too fast for road conditions, and his vehicle ran off the side of the road. Reports indicate that the vehicle then struck a vehicle and caught fire.

The man was reportedly briefly trapped in the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. He was transported to the hospital for treatment. Police say that he was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident and his vehicle was totaled.

The Missouri man has since been charged with possession of a controlled substance and DWI. Criminal charges can be difficult even under the best of circumstances. Because of the potential impact of the decisions the man must make in the next weeks and months, he may decide that he wants an experienced criminal defense attorney on his side who can help him as he assesses his options and chooses the path that is most appropriate for his individual circumstances.
