DUI with Injury

Proven Counsel from Our Pasadena DUI Defense Attorney

Drunk drivers cause accidents that injure and kill people throughout the state of California and lawmakers have enacted serious penalties for those who are accused of this crime. It is against the law to operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and the penalties for doing so are harsh. An alcohol-related accident that injures others can cause charges as a misdemeanor or felony and that determination depends on specific evidence and other factors.

An individual arrested for a DUI with injury charge should immediately contact a Pasadena DUI defense lawyer for legal assistance before speaking with authorities. At The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller, Mr. Geller is a former Los Angeles prosecutor who has received rigorous, nationally-renowned training in the DUI practice area. If you have been accused of drunk driving following a dangerous accident, we're ready to assess your case and ensure that the most favorable outcome is diligently pursued on your behalf.

Injuries & DUI Offenses

A driver involved in a DUI related traffic collision and causes injuries is subject to severe penalties. The penalties increase if there are prior offenses, the drunk driver leaves the scene, and the seriousness of the injuries from a DUI related accident.

A DUI conviction can include:

  • Misdemeanor DUI -5 days to 1-year county jail, up to $5,000 in fines, 3-5 years’ probation, court mandated alcohol education programs, 1-3 years driver’s license suspension, restitution to injured parties
  • Felony DUI – 2-5 years state prison, $5,000 maximum fines, court mandated drug education programs, 5-year revocation of driver’s license

When faced with a DUI charge that also includes injuries to others it is essential to have support and aggressive defense from experienced DUI defense attorneys. An officer must positively believe that a driver was drunk, was lawfully arrested and the driver’s blood alcohol level was above .08%.

A good defense can examine and dispute those areas when presented as evidence by the prosecution. The Law Offices of Paul G. Geller uses the experience as a former deputy district attorney for Los Angeles County and can offer uncommon insight into how to combat and mitigate these charges. Make an appointment today for a consultation with one of our DUI defense attorneys when charged with a DUI with injuries crime.
