DUI with Injury Cases in California

A DUI with injury case may be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident and your past criminal history, if any, as it relates to previous DUI convictions. The prosecutor must prove that you drove while under the influence or with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent or higher, that while doing so you broke a law or were otherwise negligent in your driving, and that this resulted in the injury of another person. If you were driving under the influence of drugs, these may be illegal drugs, prescription drugs, and even over-the-counter drugs. Any drug that impairs your driving ability may apply.

The penalties that apply to a DUI with injury will depend on how the offense is charged, the facts of the case, such as the extent of the injuries and your impairment, and if you have previous DUI offenses.

Because of the serious consequences that may ensue from this offense, it is in your best interests to retain the services of a qualified criminal defense attorney. We urge you to contact The McGuire Law Office for a consultation about your DUI with injury charges without delay.
