Enlisting an Experienced DWI Lawyer
Steve Schanker has experience in every area of DUI defense law. If you
have been involved in a
DUI involving an accident, it is crucial that you contact a Kansas City DWI attorney as soon as
possible, as you could be facing a felony conviction. If your driving
was impaired by illegal drugs, prescription drugs or over the counter
drugs, you could be accused of
DUI involving drugs
. At the driver's license hearing, it will be determined whether or
not your license will be suspended. If you are arrested for
driving while suspended,
your suspension time could be increased and you could be subject to fines
and jail time. For all of these incidents, you will need experienced and prepared legal support.
One of the main types of evidence that can be held against you in a DUI
case is the results of your
field sobriety test . There are three main field sobriety tests used in the U.S. The first
is the walk and turn test. This divided attention test requires the driver
to walk along a straight line heel-to-toe while counting their steps out
loud. The second test is the one leg stand. This is also a divided attention
test and it requires them to balance while counting. Lastly, the horizontal
gaze nystagmus test is used to examine exaggerated jerking in the eye.
Although these tests are useful in determining whether or not a person
is under the influence of alcohol, they are not completely accurate.
If you believe the results of your test could be challenged, Attorney Schanker
is ready to help you prove your case .
