Sacramento DUI Lawyer
When someone driving under the influence is involved in an auto accident causing injury to another individual, serious felony charges can result. These charges include DUI causing injury, an offense which carries punishments up to three years in state prison, and additional years added for each successive person injured. In addition, three years may be added in the event of serious bodily injury to the victim(s). Even though most California DUI offenses are considered misdemeanors, the charges usually escalate to felony when DUI accidents result in death or injury.

What is DUI Causing Injury?
DUI causing injury, also known as DUI with injury, is an offense involving a driver possessing a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher, or whose normal driving abilities have been impaired due to drugs and/or alcohol consumption, who is also involved in an auto accident causing bodily injury to another person. Whether the injury is minor, major or even life threatening may in part determine whether the accused could be charged with misdemeanor, or felony DUI with injury.
