lialpinsamy : I just got letters from a Bunche of attorney's saying that I'm being charged for a DUI and fleeing an accident... All I remember was takin an ambien and maybe had a drink then when to bed.. When I woke up in bed the police were there sayin they found my car in a fence with the keys in the passenger seat (its a habit to leave them in my ignition). They took a blood test, haven't heard the results..
What my question is, is that without any sort of proof that I was driving the car can they still give me a dui and fleeing

Etepsips : You've been charged. You're still "innocent." But you need to get a good defense attorney right away. This is something that can mess you up forever.

Can they "give" you a dui and fleeing? The did. But until you're convicted, it doesn't count for much.

Wouldn't hurt to ease up on the alcohol and drugs, either. But that's your call. Being woken up in bed is ... well, it's a literal and figurative wake-up call, isn't it? ... Good luck!!

jaggu : I think you were driving on Oblivion Highway & forgot to pay the toll.
The toll is very very steep as you shall soon see.
Hope you learn this lesson in life.

FuhAccoughNor : Welcome to ambien hell. That is what ambien does to you - you take it like you are supposed to, you go to bed, you wake up in your car, in the gutter, in the ER, in jail, and you have no memory of how you got there.

You need to keep your mouth shut until you talk to an attorney. Don't tell the police ANYTHING because they WILL use anything you say against you in a court of law. You have the right to remain silent, and you need to see a good lawyer ASAP.

How do you know that someone did not steal your car, wreck it, and leave it there? Are there any witnesses? While it is very possible you did this under the influence of ambien, it is also possible that someone else did it. Say nothing to the police until you see an attorney.

reitlelaway : If you want to discuss DUI problem with lawyer can contact with Orlando DUI Lawyers.If convicted of DUI, you may face other complications as well. You may be placed on probation, which limits your ability to travel, makes you subject to monitoring and random drug testing, etc. You may also be ordered to have an ignition interlock device installed. This device requires that you blow into it before your car will start. It analyzes your breath in the same manner a breathalyzer does, and if there is alcohol on your breath, the car will not start. Additionally, a DUI can have a significant impact on your insurance rates and coverage. Some companies will not be inclined to provide automobile insurance if you have multiple DUIs on your record, and others will provide it at drastically increased rates.

Vorsanaffow : I work in this field of law. What state are you/was your accident in and how long ago was it?

Unless your attorney is a total retard, you will get a settlement. To get a rough number of how much your case is worth, you can reasonably just double your total cost of medical treatment. If the driver was drunk and there is a police report, liability is clear and the defense will likely pay very quickly. You were smart to get an attorney though.

Be careful when settling as you want to make sure you collect future damages if your body does not recover to 100% from this accident. Also, your attorneys fees and medical liens will be deducted from your settlement, so depending on your case, you may only get a third or so of your total settlement...

.... I'm wondering why your attorney didn't explain any of this to you? Who is this guy?
