The penalties for DUI increase if someone has been injured. If someone has been seriously injured, it counts as a third-degree felony and is punishable by up to five years of prison time. This means that if anyone was injured while you were allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, it is important that you talk to a lawyer right away.
Even if you are the only one hurt, you can still be charged with DUI bodily injury or DUI with serious bodily injury. For instance, if you wrap your car around a telephone pole and suffer whiplash or broken bones, you can be charged with a crime!
If someone was killed in the accident, you will be facing an incredibly serious felony charge. In Florida, DUI manslaughter carries up to $10,000 in fines and up to 15 years in prison. Plus, you will lose your driver's license for the rest of your life. Please use our DUI Calculator to estimate your BAC before even considering getting behind the wheel.
If you are facing this felony charge, turn to a lawyer at our firm who has the experience and skill you need to present a strong defense.
In every case, the attorneys of Delgado & Romanik will explore every option to mitigate the charges against you. Depending on your case, we may use the accident report privilege, question the credibility of any witness statements and utilize other defenses.
