Arizona DUI Law: How Arizona Handles DUI

Guide to Arizona DUI LAW

Being involved in an accident that was caused by a drunk driver is incredibly traumatic and made worse often by the feeling of unfairness, as your accident was caused solely by a driver who made the reckless decision to drive while intoxicated. That’s why it is essential to be informed about Arizona DUI Law.

If your accident happened in the state of Arizona, the Arizona DUI law would be on your side as the state takes a famously ‘zero-tolerance’ approach, meaning if you were the victim of an accident, the courts will likely be in your favor. It can feel very overwhelming to start legal proceedings after an accident- particularly when it could have been avoided so it’s important to understand your rights and the legal journey you will embark on.

Our blog explores why the Arizona DUI law side with DUI accident victims and the difference in court settings that can be chosen to represent each individual case, depending on the details of the accident.

The DUI Law in Arizona Concerning DUI Drivers

Civil cases look to compensate victims of individuals who break the law for damages that they incurred because of illegal behavior. A civil court will defend the victim or person impacted directly by a DUI driver who has already pleaded guilty and acknowledged the illegal behavior and subsequent damages that have happened as a direct result of their actions.

Civil Court- DUI Law Trials

Civil courts are the issue of damages and the plea; a DUI driver will likely either initially plead guilty or not guilty only to be found guilty of a DUI. Depending on several other factors surrounding the case, such as how drunk the driver was when breathalyzed, the damage to the cars, and the injuries sustained, your legal representative will decide which legal path will best suit your individual case.

This process was very well advised by an aggressive and determined lawyer. All I can say is now I’m left a very happy man. Thank you karissa for working quick to bring my tragic story to a much warmer end. Just call them! You won’t regret it!

I was in an accident that resulted in getting whiplash and a concussion. I contacted Phoenix Accident and Injury Law Firm that day. Everyone was helpful (Rhea, Karissa, and Jeff) from the very beginning to the very end. They sent me to a physical therapy location that was pretty far away but the doctor and physical therapist were very kind so I did make the trek. They handled all aspects of my case in a timely manner and answered all my questions. They got the max amount possible, and from that, paid the medical bills and took their fair cut. I would not hesitate to recommend them to family or friends.

I would give ten stars if I could. This law firm is about as professional and friendly as it gets!! They stayed in constant contact with me and answered every question I had. I got a settlement that was higher than I expected and will definitely use this law firm again. I highly recommend hiring them to handle your legal issues!!

What can I say about the Thompson Law Firm? They are AMAZING!! It’s never fun when you need an accident lawyer because you are pretty much in a bad place. Shane and the staff have been wonderful, kept me informed at every step of this process. I would recommend Thompson Law Firm to anyone, in fact, I have referred several friends already!! Thank you Thompson Law Firm for everything you did for me!!!

These guys were absolutely amazing. They were very clear with me about what I needed to do on my end and I saw fast results. I just recommended them to a friend a week ago and he also dealt with my mother's case. I wouldn't see anyone else.
