How Much a Suffolk County DWI Can Cost

These are good reasons to remember that you can choose not to drink and drive!

The bustling area of Suffolk County may be busy but the people here are not too busy not to take certain things like a DWI seriously.  New York DWI penalties can be severe and can include: having your license suspended, expensive fees and fines, alcohol rehabilitation classes, probation, DWI school, having an ignition interlock device installed on your automobile, jail time and more.  Do not put yourself in this situation.  If you realize you have had too much to drink, make the wise choice and call a cab or have a sober friend take you home. 

If you are found guilty of a Suffolk County DWI, you can expect to be punished.  This is why it is very necessary to find a talented Suffolk County DWI attorney to represent you.  They can help to have the charges against you reduced or even dismissed altogether.  If you think you can fight your DWI charges on your own, you may want to think again. 

Below are some estimates of what a guilty verdict will cost you for a Suffolk County DWI:   

  • DWI fines can range from $300-$5000.  The average is $500

  • The cost for alcohol evaluation and treatment averages around $500

  • Attorney fees for a typical Suffolk County DWI with no accident involved is $2500

  • The average cost for your insurance pool surcharge is $4500.  This is an amount that will be added to the cost of your insurance.  In addition, remember that insurance carriers who have lower costs will not write policies for DWI offenders so you will likely have to switch insurance companies and you can expect to be charged higher rates.

It is necessary to be aware that none of these expenses include any of the jail time you will have to serve, the loss of wages because you will not be working, the cost of DWI school, the amount you will be charged to have your license reinstated, civil penalties if you end up being sued by someone you injured or killed as a result of your DWI or the lost opportunities due to the stigma you will incur.  If you have been arrested for a Suffolk County DWI, you cannot afford not to fight the charges against you.
