What Are the Elements of a DUI with Injury?
A DUI in which a person was injured is a wobbler which could be charged
as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the details of the case.
Details that could affect the outcome of your DUI with injury case include
your prior criminal history, the severity and type injuries sustained
by the victim, your
BAC at the time of arrest, and other circumstances.
The prosecution will need to prove three things to obtain a conviction:
- You were driving under the influence of alcohol
- Your actions while impaired were illegal or negligent
- These actions resulted in another person's injury
Because your case hinges on these three elements of proof, it is essential
that you retain a legal team that has experience handling charges of DUI.
If any critical pieces of your arrest are proven unlawful or improper,
your case could be thrown out. Find a DUI attorney immediately if you
have been accused of injuring another person while driving under the influence.
