Simply because a person was involved in an accident is not fatal to your Massachusetts OUI / DUI case. Certainly, however, prosecutors will attempt to use each and every factor to establish evidence that your ability to operate a motor vehicle safely was impaired by alcohol or drugs.
Other common factors that police and prosecutors rely upon in Massachusetts DUI Charges are the smell of alcohol on your breath; unsteadiness on your feet; slurred speech; presence of alcohol containers in the car; and certainly, evidence of Field Sobriety Tests or Alcohol Breath Tests.
