    If you had filed a police report against him for unlawfull use of a motor vehicle he could have faced criminal charges and would have been ordered by the court to pay restitution. Now your best chance of any recovery would be to bring a case against in the Justice of the Peace Court. Sincerely, Erick Platten

    In cases where there has been an accident or serious bodily injury the State can get a warrant for your blood. If they didn't get a warrant they would need to get an grand jury subpoena to obtain this information. You may be charged with an intoxication crime. You need to speak with someone in your area that specializes in DWI's. Sincerely, Erick Platten

    Average cost is very hard to put a number on. The trial transcript alone is going to cost anywhere from six to seven dollars a page. But you have thirty days from the date of sentencing to file your notice of appeal. A motion for new trial is usually filed before the notice of appeal to see if the judge will entertain the argument of what went wrong in trial. You need a good attorney that handles appeals.

    Even though you have a high BAC that doesn't necessarily mean the state can prove you were intoxicated. There are lots of things that can be done to help you. Talk with you attorney about this and watch the video. Determine if there was a good enough reason for the stop and determine if there are any problems with the BAC testing.
