How a DUI could affect your reputation

| Jul 8, 2020 | Uncategorized |

We all have reputations to uphold. Whether you work as a teacher, a doctor, a manager or a mechanic, the people we work with have certain expectations about our character. They expect that we are responsible and trustworthy. However, when a person is convicted of a crime, all of these presumptions may be dismissed, and their reputation could become irreparably damaged.

If you have recently been accused of drunk driving, one of the primary concerns you may have is how it will affect your reputation in both your professional and private life. The following is an overview of the potential ways a DUI could affect your reputation, and what you can do about it.

DUIs and your career

The way in which your career will be affected will likely depend on your profession. If you are a qualified professional such as a doctor or a nurse, you may have your medical license suspended as a result of a DUI, meaning that you will no longer be able to continue in your profession. Alternatively, if you have a job that involves driving, you will almost certainly be fired from this job as a result of your license suspension.

DUIs and your friendship circle

Your personal relationships may also be affected by a DUI conviction. Friends who believed that you were responsible and sensible may decide to distance themselves from you. If you have children, other parents may be wary of letting their child have a play date, because they may be concerned about intoxication.

Protecting your reputation in relation to a drunk driving accusation

It’s a sad fact that a DUI can affect every aspect of a person’s life. This is why it is important that you defend yourself aggressively in response to a drunk driving accusation. Even if the Breathalyzer test results suggested that you were driving over the legal limit, you may still be able to dispute this claim by arguing that the test was faulty or that you suffer from a health condition that possibly influenced the results.

By taking swift action to defend yourself against a DUI accusation, you’ll be taking positive steps in defending your reputation and your character, and you may be able to clear your name as a result.
