Emergency Response Expenses

Emergency Response Expenses:

  • Arizona may seek from a person who is under the influence of intoxicating liquor, any drug, a vapor releasing substance containing a toxic substance or any combination of liquor, drugs or vapor releasing substances, who causes an accident that results in an emergency response and who is convicted of any DUI/DWI is liable for the expenses of that emergency response.
  • The expenses of an emergency response are a charge against the person liable for those expenses. The charge is a debt of that person.
  • The public agency, for-profit entity or not-for-profit entity that incurred the expenses may collect the debt proportionally. The person's liability for the expenses of an emergency response shall not exceed one thousand dollars for a single accident.
  • The liability imposed under this section is in addition to and not in limitation of any other liability that may be imposed.

Drunk driving is known by a variety of names such as:

  • driving under the influence (DUI)
  • driving while impaired (DWI)
  • operating under the influence (OUI)
  • operating while impaired (OWI)
  • driving under the influence of intoxicants (DUII)
  • driving while under the influence (DWUI)

The mere fact that driving intoxicated or under the influence may be called by different phrases, the consequences of such a conviction can be devastating.  So no matter what you call it, one should seriously consider hiring a competent, experienced lawyer to represent them.
