Contact a Kansas City DUI Attorney As Soon As You Are Arrested for Suspicion of DUI

Filed under: Legal — admin @ 8:53 am

This is probably one of the things you’re never prepared to have happen to you. You’re driving along, fully aware that you are sober and completely capable of driving – when you get pulled over. Now that you are suspected of drunk driving or driving under the influence (DUI), what do you do? You contact a Kansas City DUI attorney as soon as you have the opportunity to do so.

Drunk driving laws are tougher, and that means you can be targeted, too

Even good responsible drivers can be pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving. Groups like Mothers Against Drunk Driving, or MADD, has seen to that – and that’s actually a very good thing. Our roads are definitely safer because drunk driving laws are tighter. Unfortunately, that also means that on occasion, truly innocently drivers can be pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving. You may find yourself in that situation by surprise, and of course, you’re not prepared for it.

Fortunately, contacting a Kansas City DUI lawyer as soon as you can will greatly increase your chances of having your case dismissed, or at least charges greatly reduced.

Fully cooperate with police – but invoke your right to remain silent as soon as you can

When you are pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving, you must cooperate with police when they ask you to do things during the incident itself. Obey orders to get out of the car, perform field sobriety tests, take a breathalyzer test, and let yourself be handcuffed and placed into custody if that’s what ends up happening. You don’t want legitimate charges for related offenses like resisting arrest to be tendered against you along with your bogus DUI charge. That just makes your case that much more complicated, and you probably won’t get off completely free and clear.

So do cooperate when you’re asked to do so during your time prior to arrest; as soon as you’re read your Miranda rights, though, stay silent and contact a Kansas City DUI lawyer to take over your case. He or she can then review your case, chart the best course of action, and provide a buffer between you and law enforcement in the event you do have to be involved with them so that you don’t erroneously harm yourself further by saying things you shouldn’t. This also gives you the opportunity to rest easy at night, knowing that you have the best possible helping your side so that you walk away free and clear, innocent and able to get on with your life.

Some Highlights of Personal Injury Loans

Filed under: Finance / Financial,Legal — admin @ 9:27 am

Personal injury loans, like the name implies, are loans given to those who are involved in personal injury lawsuits and who qualify.  Actually a cash advance against the money you expect to win in your lawsuit, this funding makes it possible to avoid financial stress and pay creditors, medical costs, and other expenses while you wait for your claim to be settled.  Essentially, you can live comfortably and avoid “going broke” while waiting to get the settlement you deserve for the injuries you sustained because of someone else’s negligence.

Must personal injury loans be paid back on a monthly basis?  No.  Unlike conventional bank loans, you will not repay the money monthly with litigation funding.  In fact, you pay nothing at all until your lawsuit has been won and you have your money in hand.  At that time, you will repay the advance along with any fees and/or interest that apply.  Should your attorney fail to win your lawsuit, you will not repay any of the advance because settlement funding is a no-recourse process.

How can I apply?  The application process is a simple one that your attorney must be involved in.  With personal injury loans, if you have bad credit or no credit it makes no difference.  Nor does it make a difference if you are unemployed.  The litigation funding company only wants you and your lawyer to provide information directly related to the lawsuit, such as details of the accident or circumstances that resulted in your injuries, and the injuries themselves.  Your attorney can give you further details of the application process.

Personal injury loans give those who qualify the opportunity to obtain about 10% of their expected settlement.  This means that if your attorney has filed a lawsuit for $240,000, you will likely be advanced about $24,000.  Use the advance to buy groceries, pay household utility bills, or even have your vehicle repaired if it was damaged in the accident causing your injuries.

The process is quick and simple.  Unlike with most other forms of funding, litigation funding is quick and easy.  If you qualify, you will get the money you need almost immediately – usually within 24 hours.  No red tape or mountains of paperwork, no waiting for days or weeks to get the money you so badly need.

Personal injury loans have helped tens of thousands of injured victims avoid financial disaster, foreclosure, and even bankruptcy while waiting for their lawsuit to settle.  Is litigation funding the right solution for your particular situation?  Your attorney can help answer this question, and give you more insight into the process.  It is definitely worth your time and effort to learn more about this type of funding.
