DUI with Injury
Accused of causing an injury while driving under the influence? We will fight for you as your DUI defense attorney.
Any time you are caught driving with a BAC over the legal limit of .08 or while impaired by drugs, you can face charges for DUI. But if you allegedly caused a car accident while intoxicated, and someone suffered an injury, your case could get a whole lot more complicated. You could end up facing felony charges for a DUI causing injury.
It is essential to have an aggressive DUI defense attorney on your side in this situation. At Perlmutter & Pourshalimi, we can intervene early in your case and work hard to protect you from any undeserved or unduly harsh penalties.
Possible DUI with Injury Defenses
There are two main ways to defend against a charge of DUI causing injury: disproving the DUI and disproving fault for the accident.
As an experienced DUI defense attorney, we know all the most productive strategies for securing dismissals and acquittals. For example, we can challenge the results of any field sobriety tests, blood tests, or breath tests you may have taken, cross-examine the arresting officer, and look for other witnesses in your case. If we can show you were not over the legal limit for alcohol or impaired by drugs, then you will not have criminal liability for the car accident.
We will also carefully investigate the circumstances of the accident, with the help of an expert accident reconstructionist if needed. If we can disprove the prosecution’s allegation that your violation of a traffic law and your negligence caused the accident, you cannot be convicted of DUI causing injury. However, you may still face a lesser DUI charge.
