DUI with Injury Charges in Los Angeles

Accused of Causing a DUI Accident Resulting in Injury?

When a drunk driver causes an accident which results in bodily injury to another person, this is referred to as a DUI with injury or a DUI causing injury. This is a felony offense in our state and may result in the driver's imprisonment for up to 6 years, depending upon the severity of the injuries suffered by the victims of the crash.

In any DUI with injury case, the prosecution must prove that you, the driver, were in fact under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the crash and that this impairment caused the accident. Los Angeles DUI attorney David D. Diamond understands how to use this to your advantage. By recreating the accident and interviewing witnesses, our law firm may be able to prove that you did not cause the accident or that you were not at fault.

Penalties for DUI with Injury Charges

If you are convicted of DUI with injury, you will face the following penalties and enhancements:

  • Felony charges
  • Up to 3 years in state prison
  • Additional 1 year of imprisonment for each additional person injured
  • Additional 3 years of imprisonment if someone is gravely or permanently injured
  • A possible "strike" on your criminal record (for a DUI with great bodily injury)

DUI with injury is a serious offense in California. If convicted, you could spend the next several years of your life in prison. However, by working with a skilled DUI defense lawyer, you have a chance of avoiding a conviction.
