Every California DUI charge is serious, but trying to cope with a charge of DUI causing injury on your own is a tremendous risk. Your freedom and future are clearly on the line in this situation. You need a caring, dynamic defense lawyer who will value your personal priorities, look at every angle and present clear choices for the handling of your case.
Whether You Face a Felony or Misdemeanor Could Depend on Your Lawyer
When facing DUI accident charges, you need a lawyer who will investigate every aspect of the accident and your arrest. It is critical to recognize that a DUI involving an accident or injury can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor — and that your attorney may be able to impact that decision by the district attorney. Your case may call for challenging not only the circumstances of the DUI arrest itself, but the causes and outcomes of the crash, including:
- Whether you broke a traffic law or were otherwise negligent in addition to driving under the influence
- The number of people injured in your auto accident and the severity of their injuries
