California DUI Causing Injury

Have Our Ventura DUI Attorneys Protect Your Rights, Reputation & Freedom

If you were arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol/drugs and caused an injury to another party at the same time, you would face more severe charges compared to an ordinary DUI conviction. Not only can you potentially face a lengthy prison sentence and expensive fines, but your reputation can suffer permanent damage.

At Wilfert Law, PC, our legal team is capable of reducing your charges or getting your case dismissed altogether. As a former prosecutor, our Ventura DUI lawyer knows how the prosecution will approach your case and develop an aggressive and customized defense strategy to properly counter them.

DUI Causing Injury Penalties

In order to convict a person of DUI causing injury, the prosecution must prove an offender violated California DUI laws, broke an additional law or acted in a negligent manner while driving, and that unlawful act or negligence injured another individual.

A first DUI causing injury can be either a misdemeanor or felony offense, depending on the circumstances of the arrest. A misdemeanor charge is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year. A felony charge is punishable by a state prison sentence of two, three, or four years. You may also face costly fines, years of probation, and years of license suspension.
