Defense from Our DUI with Injury Lawyer

If you are charged with causing an accident that resulted in another person's injuries as the result of driving under the influence, you could be charged with the increased offense of DUI with injury. Depending on the circumstances of the accident and your criminal record, you could be charged with either a misdemeanor or felony. The consequences of conviction are very severe, so it is imperative that you retain knowledgeable and effective legal counsel from a Riverside criminal defense attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and interests.

Understanding the Criminal Process

The prosecutor needs to prove that:

  1. You were driving under the influence
  2. You were otherwise breaking the law or driving negligently
  3. Your negligence caused the injuries to the other person

We examine all three points to mount our challenge. In the breath test or field sobriety test you were given the police may have violated procedures invalidating the results. As far as you being negligent, the police most likely arrived after the accident and did not see it. They could well have based their decision on false reports or mere speculation. Finally you may not have caused the accident. Perhaps the other driver was responsible by speeding, failing to yield or being inattentive.
