Our client was involved in an accident when one of his tires “blew out” and his vehicle left the road and struck a tree. Client did not remember anything else as his head went through a window. e was transported to a hospital by helicopter due to severe bleeding. Troopers responded and had a blood sample drawn which indicated a BAC of .13. Client has a prior AI from 2004. He had a previous attorney who secured a DWI offer but due to lack of communication the case was pending for close to two years. Our attorneys took over the case and submitted proof that the BAC result was likely inadmissible. Our client was able to enter a plea to one count of Reckless Driving, a non-alcohol related charge, in full satisfaction. Despite the new tough New York DWI laws, our client was able to keep his license.
