DUI Causing Injury Attorney in Orange County, CA
What are the Penalties for DUI Causing Injury?
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 serious injury or death are most often felonies.

Your Future Is on the Line
When you are arrested for DUI, the arresting officer will confiscate your driver’s license and give you a “notice of suspension” that will serve as a temporary license. California law requires you to choose between a breath or blood test if lawfully arrested.
If you failed to complete or declined/refused a breath test or blood test, the DMV will begin suspension proceedings starting on the 31st day after your arrest.
You must contact the DMV within 10 days of your arrest in order to challenge the suspension of your driver’s license, or it will be suspended regardless of the outcome of your case.
We handle making these arrangements for our clients.
The DMV hearing and your criminal case are two entirely separate parts to your DUI charges. Even if you are not found guilty of DUI, you could still lose your license depending upon how the DMV hearing goes.

If keeping your license is important to you, you should speak immediately with an experienced Orange County DUI lawyer to discuss your options and to learn how your right to drive can be protected.
