What "Implied Consent" Can Mean For You
Both Kansas and Missouri are "implied consent" states. Implied consent means that, if you get pulled over on suspicion of DUI, OUI, or DWI, you have the right to refuse to take a breathalyzer test. The truth is, the absence of these test results can help your case tremendously.
However, if you refuse the test, there are consequences to consider: you are subject to a fine and a driver's license suspension that may last anywhere from six to 12 months. This kind of suspension may also result in your insurance company cancelling the policy you have on your vehicle.
Unique DUI/DWI/OUI Defense Tailored to Your Case
We may approach the case from a technical standpoint if there has been an issue with the breath or blood alcohol test. We may focus on the initial basis for the traffic stop or the officer’s subsequent investigation. The important element to remember is that every individual’s case is unique and must be thoroughly reviewed to develop and apply the specific defenses for that particular case. Focusing on the unique nature of every case, we will closely review all video and audio records because we know that the smallest detail can often result in a favorable outcome.
The decision is yours to make, but it's best to have a plan ready in event that you get pulled over. If you've already been charged, however, you need to find the right attorney to handle the case.
