Consequences of a DUI Involving an Accident
When you are driving under the influence (DUI) and arrested, you can face serious penalties. However, if you are involved in an accident while DUI, the penalties increase markedly. Causing any injuries while DUI could lead to criminal charges, especially if the person injured is seriously hurt, or even killed. If convicted, you could face three to six years in prison for injuring someone and four to ten years in prison if a person loses their life in the accident. If you find yourself charged with this crime, it is imperative you contact a Los Angeles DUI lawyer to help you avoid conviction.
Not all individuals that are arrested for DUI are guilty. There are always extenuating circumstances, and the attorneys at the Kraut Law Group will do their utmost to uncover them and use them in your defense. By using effective defense strategies, our legal team will do all they can to fight your charges.
A thorough investigation into the accident can possibly determine that you were not the negligent party that caused the accident, even if you were drinking. Your attorney will work to prove that your blood alcohol level was below the legal limit, if at all possible. By removing some of the factors that can cause this to be charged as a DUI with injury or a vehicular manslaughter, your chances of a reduced charge are greatly enhanced.
