Ventura County DUI Drugs Lawyer
DUI Involving Drugs or Medication Defense Attorney
A DUI involving drugs or medications can be a very complicated case. But there is hope in such a case since the evidence for a DUI involving drugs only (as opposed to drugs and alcohol) often involves arbitrary decisions and observations made by the arresting police officer or other law enforcement official. A Ventura County DUI drugs attorney at our Westlake Village firm may be able to help you get this evidence thrown out because of non-standard procedures, inaccurate or unfounded observations and even mistakes and errors made in blood test analysis. At the Law Offices of Robert F. Sommers, we know what is at stake for the client faced with DUI drug charges and we are dedicated to helping our clients prove their innocence. We work exclusively on DUI defense and have the requisite knowledge and experience to get results.
An individual can be arrested and charged for DUI involving drugs if a law enforcement officer feels that any kind of drug has impaired that person's ability to operate a vehicle safely. The officer must have just cause for pulling someone over such as observing the car to swerve, drift or make jerky, uncontrolled maneuvers. A variety of drugs can result in DUI drug arrests and do not only concern illicit street drugs or illegal drugs. While drugs such as marijuana, cocaine or heroin can result in a DUI drugs charge, even over the counter drugs like cough medicine may be argued to have impaired the driver. In fact, drugs legally prescribed by your doctor (prescription drugs) can be used by prosecutors to say that you were impaired. A skilled Ventura County DUI defense attorney at our firm can help get the evidence of such drug-impaired driving dismissed in your case. The prosecutors have the very difficult task of proving that blood or urine tests were correctly conducted and analyzed and that there is no doubt that any drug present did in fact impair the driver despite what the arresting officer may have observed.
