Accused of DUI with Injury?

Gold & Witham Can Help Protect Your Legal Rights

DUI with injury, also referred to as DUI causing injury, occurs when a drunk driver causes an auto accident which results in injury to any of the others involved in the accident. Unfortunately, DUI with injury charges may come about even when the driver charged with this crime did not cause the accident. The reason for this is that law enforcement, and even witnesses on the scene, may be predisposed to believe that the driver who had been drinking was the cause of the accident.

Penalties for DUI with Injury

California law is not lenient in the least when it comes to drivers who have been accused of driving under the influence, particularly when these charges involve injury to others. This is why it is so important to work with a competent Long Beach DUI lawyer.

Some penalties for a DUI with injury conviction include the following:

  • Up to 3 years in state prison
  • Additional 3 years if "great bodily injury" is sustained (per person injured)
  • One "strike" under California's Three Strike Law
  • Monetary fines and restitution
  • Counseling / rehabilitation
