Worried about a DUI suspension of your Illinois license? It is complicated.
The “automatic” DUI suspension that may be triggered about a month and a half after a DUI arrest is called a statutory summary suspension. The process of fighting a statutory summary suspension is technically a separate legal proceeding than your DUI case (even though it might seem the same). If you get convicted of the DUI, your driver’s license will be revoked. A revocation is different than a suspension. It is also possible that you can be both suspended and revoked at the same time. Many people think that driving while under the influence is not a big deal, but they don´t know that they could be risking the live of others and even their own. Injuries are also a big risk, for this situation personal injury attorney services should be hired for their legal assistance.
Not confused yet? How about this: even though your suspension may automatically start does not mean it will automatically finish. Sure, you will be told the day that the suspension ends. That does not necessarily mean it will be over, though. When will a revocation end?
