A: A Washington criminal defense attorney could advise best, if you need to discuss any charges. Your question probably remained open because car accident attorneys (the chosen category) deal more with civil damages (money for injuries or vehicle damage). You could reach out to criminal defense attorneys to try to arrange a confidential consult. If your post DOES involve a PD claim, policies may contain exclusions there for alcohol. A local attorney should be able to advise more definitively. Good luck
