DUI with Injury

Punta Gorda DUI Defense Attorney

In the state of Florida, penalties for a basic driving under the influence offense are harsh enough. They can become even more severe, however, when an accident is caused by the drunk driver and a victim is seriously injured. In § 316.193(3)2, Fla. Stat. (2012), it states that operating a vehicle while intoxicated in a manner that causes bodily damage to another is guilty of a first degree misdemeanor, which is punishable by a jail term of up to one year and a fine of up to $1,000.

If serious bodily injury is caused to another, it is a third degree felony. "Serious bodily injury" is defined in § 316.1933 as a physical condition involving a high risk of death, disfigurement, or long-term loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ. As a third degree felony, this offense is punishable by a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to $5,000. The offense could also escalate to a second degree felony as DUI manslaughter if the crash resulted in the death of a victim. The penalty for such a felony would be a prison sentence of up to 15 years and a fine of up to $10,000. If you have been arrested for DUI with injury, get aggressive representation from a Punta Gorda criminal defense attorney immediately to ensure that you do not have to suffer the severe consequences of a conviction.
