What are additional consequences of drunk driving charges?

If you are charged with drunk driving, you may be worried about losing your driver’s license, being ordered to pay steep financial penalties and even being sentenced to prison. However, drunk driving charges could affect your life in other ways as well. At Baker Billick, our North Carolina law firm knows all too well how these charges can shatter the lives of people in Mecklenburg, and all across the state.

While time behind bars and fines can be devastating, you could lose your job because of these charges, which may be especially difficult due to the competitive job market. Worse yet, you could have difficulty finding work in your field years later, depending on your occupation. Even if you are able to keep your job, you may have a hard time getting to work if you lose your ability to drive, which could affect your performance. Unfortunately, drunk driving charges can create a snowball effect of stress, financial challenges and other problems.

Outside of your career, drunk driving charges could also result in problems with your friends and family members. After all, these allegations carry a harsh stigma and can virtually destroy one’s reputation, even if they were innocent or details were exaggerated. Because of the wide range of ways that drunk driving accusations can upend your life, you should take these charges very seriously and carefully analyze any legal options that may be available.
