DUI with Injury
Hire the Heavy-Hitters at Campbell Whitten to Protect You
If you had allegedly been
driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and caused a
car accident that led to someone being injured, you could be facing life-changing consequences.
DUI with injury charges do not need to involve members of another vehicle.
These cases are often the result of minor wounds, such as scrapes and
bruises, from an accompanying passenger. Due to the criminal accusations
surrounding such cases, you can be arrested without any injured parties
actually filing a charge against you.
Even if the injured passenger testifies that they knew you had consumed
alcohol earlier in the night, you can still be found at fault. Your best
chance at defending your rights might be to stand in court with the Bakersfield
DUI lawyers from Campbell Whitten.

You Can Be Charged with a Misdemeanor or Felony
DUI with injury can be charged as a misdemeanor or felony depending on
the circumstances involved. Your charge can be considered
a felony even when you have no prior convictions or marks on your driving record.
Penalties for a felony DUI with injury conviction include:
- Mandatory ignition interlock device – with monthly taxes
- Minimum one year license suspension – no possibility of restricted license
- Up to three years in jail
As a DUI with injury charge is considered an aggravated criminal offense,
a conviction will go on your lifetime criminal record. Furthermore, it
cannot be expunged or cleared. To protect your name and your future, you
need to take the initiative and start developing your case as soon as you can.
