DUI Accidents with Injury

When an individual is involved in an accident in which an injury occurred, they may be tested for driving well impaired. DUI accidents that involve injury can lead to very severe penalties for the person responsible. Whether one is charged with a misdemeanor or a felony depends on specific factors, including the extent of the victim's injuries, and the prior criminal history of the accused. The penalties can include:

Misdemeanor:

  • Probation lasting up to five years;
  • One year drivers' license suspension;
  • Attendance in a DUI education program;
  • Fines up to $5,000; and
  • Imprisonment for up to a year

Felony:

  • Up to $5,000 in fines;
  • Drivers' license revocation lasting up to five years;
  • Attendance in an 18 or 30-month DUI education program;
  • A strike under California's Three Strikes Law;
  • Three years of a Habitual Traffic Offender Status
  • Up to four years in prison for first injured party; and
  • Additional jail time up to six years for each victim

Prosecution will look to prove that it was the impairment from alcohol that was responsible for the accident occurring so it is necessary to dispute this in order to have a chance at avoiding conviction. Being convicted of a DUI accident with injury can prove ruinous to your life, in a personal and professional capacity. Following your punishment, you may experience additional adverse effects, such as the inability to find employment, or apply for a loan in order to purchase a home or car. It is in your best interest to seek out an experienced attorney who can fully investigate your charges, and fight to have your name cleared of any illegal activity. It is strongly advised that you contact an attorney at Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP right away if you have been charged with a DUI accident involving injury.
