Oregon Criminal Defence Lawyer Representing Victims in Tigard
The city of Tigard in Oregon’s Washington County was incorporated in 1961 and is currently the 12th largest city in the state with a population of over 48,000. The area was originally settled by several families, with the most notable being the Tigard family.
The city lies south of Beaverton and is north of Tualatin. Both Oregon Route 217 and Interstate 5 run through Tigard, and Oregon Route 210 and Oregon Route 99W serve as additional major highways.
Oregon Statistics for Driving Under the Influence
Oregon has a lower than average rate of death by DUI when compared to the national average. Still, between the years of 2003 and 2012, 1,232 people were involved in crashes involving a drunk driver in our state.
- Males are more likely than females to be involved in a DUI crash resulting in a fatality
- 1.4% of Oregon adults report driving after drinking too much in the past 30 days
- Drivers who have been drinking prior to driving are 1.4x more likely to be involved in a fatal accident
Not Every DUI Arrest Is a Fair Arrest
With four major highways crossing through Tigard, the city is often closely monitored for drunk or impaired drivers. But not every DUI arrest is justified or fair. In fact, drivers are falsely accused of driving under the influence each and every day.
If you have been accused of or arrested for a DUI, it is imperative that you contact a DUI attorney to defend your case. Even if you are innocent, prosecutors will be quick to take action against you. If you are found guilty of a DUI, you may face penalties including:
- Costly fines
- Loss of your driver’s license
- Community service
- Substance abuse treatment
- Time in jail
A DUI arrest can also mean that you will have an arrest on your criminal record. An experienced DUI attorney will help have the criminal records expunged or sealed.
