DUI with Injury
Jacksonville DUI Defense Lawyers
One of the reasons why
driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol and drugs is so highly penalized is because of the danger
that is involved. Intoxicated drivers have impaired vision, reflexes,
and judgment. They don't realize how fast they are going and have
the tendency to drift across lane lines, brake or speed up erratically,
and blow through stop signs and traffic lights as though they didn't
exist. The high penalties for DUI are meant to prevent drunk driving in
the first place, but in the event that someone does drive while intoxicated
and causes an accident with serious bodily injury, the consequences levied
against them can be extremely severe.
Penalties for DUI with Injury
Most cases of DUI with injury require the liable individual to compensate
the victim(s) for their injuries and damages and to pay an extra thousand
or more dollars in fines. They may also be charged with a
felony DUI instead of a misdemeanor, which means that they could be sentenced to
state prison instead of to county jail. Cases involving minors can also
result in compounded penalties. Speak with a
