What you don’t know about a DUI could RUIN your weekend and more…

What you didn’t know about a DUI could ruin your weekend!

Graduations, weddings, Memorial Day weekend — there’s a lot of
reasons to party just around the corner. You work hard to be free
to enjoy your weekends, right?

There’s a lot to celebrate, too, with winter behind us.

So don’t let one too many celebratory beers ruin your weekend
plans, especially if you already have a DUI on your record.

Here’s what could happen. Say you’re on your way home from
that great barbecue. You see the flashing lights behind you. You
weren’t even speeding! What!? Maybe a tail light was out?

Suddenly you remember you had more than one drink at that
barbecue. You’re not drunk. But that won’t matter if your BAC
(blood alcohol content) is above .08!

Not only do you stand to have your license suspended, you may end up paying $400 hard-earned dollars to lose your weekend! Yes. You will most likely be required to attend a Weekend Intervention Program, described as a “marathon weekend of structured activities.”


And yes, you will have to pay for it out of your pocket. There are
surely fifty other ways you would love to spend $400!
The program is 48 consecutive hours long, designed to make you
“feel the heat”.

Now that’s not a wonderful summer’s heat. While
your friends are out enjoying the next celebration, you will be in
the hot seat.

There’s more bad news. This weekend intervention program is
just the beginning, depending on your record. You will be evaluated for your ongoing need for counseling. Try to fit that in while working a 9 to 5 job!

Without legal help for a second DUI you are also very likely to lose
your driver’s license in the state of Missouri.


How are you going to get to work? Pay the bills?
Even worse, you will have to jump through some serious hoops to
get your driver’s license reinstated. Not fun explaining that to
your boss.

Imagine having to bum a daily ride off of friends and family for an
entire year. I helped a friend one summer who lost her license for
three months. It was so humiliating for her, just trying to get to work or get her children to where they needed to be.

With this heap of trouble, no one’s going to be celebrating!

Help for your uninsured auto accident nightmare!

Facing an uninsured motorist car accident claim? Here’s why you need legal help.

You know Missouri law requires every driver to have liability insurance. In case of an accident, you take care of your neighbor, right? You also do your best to protect yourself and those you love from harm.

Just because you have proper coverage doesn’t mean your fellow Missouri drivers do.

Sad but true – many people have purchased no coverage at all! Uninsured and underinsured drivers are a real problem.

If you’ve ever been in an auto accident with an uninsured motorist at fault, you know it’s a major headache. Your bad day just got a whole lot worse when you learn that the at-fault driver is not properly insured.

Spending hours on the phone with insurance companies is not fun. Sorry to say, that may be just the beginning of your nightmare if injuries and medical bills are involved.

If one little detail gets messed up in the system, it can days or even weeks to get coverage detangled! When you need ongoing medical care, that’s an added stress you don’t want to deal with.

So how does uninsured motorist coverage actually help you in the event of a car crash?

Uninsured motorist coverage steps in to fill the gap left by the negligent uninsured/underinsured driver. It’s designed to provide coverage to the injured driver up to the uninsured motorists’ limits.

Hit and run accidents are covered by uninsured motorist coverage in the state of Missouri.

Some states unhappily require the uninsured motorist vehicle to have contact with the insured vehicle. Have you ever been run off the road by a speedy driver swerving in and out of traffic?

Thankfully for Missouri residents, if another uninsured driver’s negligence caused your auto accident, you are likely to be eligible for uninsured motorist coverage.

Did debris or equipment left in the road by another vehicle cause your car accident? Even if the negligent vehicle is no longer on the scene, you could still be eligible for uninsured motorist coverage.

This coverage sometimes even applies in situations where an unknown driver “waves out” another vehicle into traffic causing a crash.

How do you claim uninsured motorist coverage if you or your vehicle is damaged by an uninsured driver?

You actually have to bring a claim against your own insurance! That’s what you’ve paid for, right? Whether following a hit and run, a “wave out” crash, or any crash or accident with an uninsured driver, it’s the injured driver’s responsibility to pursue a claim.

Guess what? Your insurance company isn’t going to like this.

Not surprisingly, the insurance will begin looking for ways to blame the insured for comparative fault. Equally unfair and alarming, your insurance company may begin seeking ways to reduce or minimize damages from the time the claim is initially reported.

This is exactly why you need an expert uninsured motorist attorney to represent you!

Our St. Charles and St. Louis car accident lawyers will fight for you to insure the crash investigation is fair.

We will contact witnesses. We will review the police reports.

Most importantly, we will advise you of your rights and communicate with the insurance company on your behalf. Yes! We will handle those frustrating, time-consuming phone calls.

The best news is NO fees unless we recover for your injuries!

We will maximize your claim recovery money for your benefit, not just to line our pockets. We think your rights matter,  not just the big insurance companies’ rights.

So, don’t face your uninsured auto accident nightmare alone!
