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.

Contact us today if you would like to learn how our team can help you manage a DUI with injury charge!

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.
