DUI Causing Injury

Orange County DUI Lawyer

When a drunk driver is involved in an auto accident that causes injury to another person, this may result in serious felony charges. In California, DUI causing injury is an offense which may be punishable by up to 3 years in state prison, with an additional 1 year for each additional person injured or an additional 3 years if the victim sustains serious bodily injury. Although most DUI offenses are charged as misdemeanors in California, DUI accidents resulting in injury or death are most often felonies.

Contacting an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer is one of the most important steps to take in the wake of an arrest for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, particularly one involving an auto accident and injuries. At the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry, our highly experienced legal team represents drivers throughout all of Orange County in the face of their DUI with injury charges. We understand that you are in a precarious position that may result in a criminal conviction and serious penalties if not properly and immediately addressed.

What is DUI with Injury?

DUI with injury, or DUI causing injury, is an offense wherein a driver who has a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater or whose normal abilities are impaired due to alcohol and/or drugs causes an auto accident that results in injury to another person. This injury may be relatively minor or may be life-threatening; the extent of injuries may determine whether a defendant faces misdemeanor or felony charges.

To represent a client who is facing DUI with injury charges, Orange County DUI attorney Virginia Landry will conduct an extensive investigation into all aspects of the client's charges, working with accident reconstruction experts and professionals in forensics and blood and breath tests as necessary to weaken the prosecution's case.
