DUI Causing Injury or Death

TRANSCRIPT

Driving Under the Influence is charged under 23152 of the vehicle code however 23153 is driving under the influence while causing injury or death and these can be as little as a misdemeanor with 10 days if the injuries are very slight perhaps the passenger has a little bruise from the seat belt and that’s it and doesn’t want anything bad to happen you and asks the court for that. That can be one end of the spectrum. DUI causing great bodily injury tend to be on the high end of what DUI’s are, but not quite as bad as DUI’s causing death. Which can lead to long prison terms, potential murder sentences, and are really what you have to watch out for in terms of getting the best possible lawyer you can have. Someone that not only knows DUI law but someone that knows murder law and I know both.
