Los Angeles DUI Injury AttorneyInvolved in a DUI Causing Injuries?
If you are arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol (DUI) and caused a DUI accident resulting in an injury, rather than a simple misdemeanor for the DUI, you may be facing a felony DUI charge. DUI is considered whenever someone drives with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08% or higher and on its own is a serious charge. When coupled with an accident causing injury, the DUI penalties could include:
- Significant fines
- Suspended license
- Increased insurance costs
- Possible loss of a job
- Restitution to the injured victim
- Prison sentence
If you are facing this charge a DUI lawyer can assist you in planning a strategy for your defense. The Kraut Law Group is highly experienced in finding defenses to use to fight your DUI when someone is injured. Not only must the prosecution prove that you were driving under the influence, but also that you violated traffic laws that led to an accident which resulted in an injury. Failing to prove either one of these can exonerate you from part or all of the charges. It will be the task of your attorney to attempt to show that you were not at fault in the accident, which will greatly reduce any charges against you.
It is important to fight these charges, as the penalties are severe, with additional years of confinement given the more serious the injury is, or the more people that are injured. Prison sentences of up to 10 years could be faced with such a conviction.
