Question: What happens if I get in a car accident in Encino after drinking but below .08 BAC? If there is a DUI conviction from Van Nuys Court, will that affect my liability?

Answer: Generally when rear-ended, the person who hit you would be liable for the accident. Depending on the circumstances, it is possible that they would try to bring a DUI conviction into consideration in order to try to shift some or all of the liability, but that depends on some other variables. I recommend hiring a DUI attorney to handle your case to try to avoid the DUI conviction if possible. I would be happy to speak to you about your case in more detail, and can be reached at 818-336-1DUI or 1duilawyer.com. Whatever you decide, good luck with your case.
