On DUI Accidents with Injury

DUI Attorney in Pasadena serving Altadena, Glendale, Las Canada, Flintridge, San Marino & Sierra Madre

Section 23153 of the California Vehicle Code makes DUI with a bodily injury a felony charge.  It states that if an individual under the influence of alcohol or drugs violates a motor vehicle law and injures another, they are guilty of a felony.  Arrest for DUI commonly results in a misdemeanor charge.  With bodily injury, the enhanced charge will result in stiffer fines and harsher penalties.  This is where a competent and dedicated Pasadena DUI lawyer can be vital to a successful outcome in your case.

Conviction for a DUI with injury is punished by incarceration in a state prison.  Further consequences can be fines, suspension or revocation of your driver's license, mandatory alcohol awareness classes, restitution and impounding of your vehicle.  A conviction can change not only your life, but the lives of those around you that you care about.  We have recently created a criminal defense department within our firm, with the express purpose of providing high-quality representation to those accused of criminal acts.  At Floyd, Skeren & Kelly, LLP our decades of experience has proven that those accused of DUI need a hard-working, skilled defense on their behalf, if they are going to fight the criminal justice system.

Can a DUI charge be successfully resolved?

An essential element that the prosecution must prove is that the alleged traffic violation was the factual reason for the accident.  Mechanical problems, the conditions of the road, bad weather, traffic violations by others drivers and many additional reasons can all be the actual cause of the accident.  Prosecutors have to show that a traffic law was, in fact, broken.  They must prove that you were intoxicated and they must be able to illustrate the connection between intoxication and the accident that occurred.

Tests for blood concentration levels and field sobriety tests can be incorrectly administered and the tests themselves can be flawed.  Our independent investigation and questioning of police reports, witnesses and the accident site itself may show a different scene than prosecutors wish to portray.  Our work needs to start now, however, if we are to do justice to your case.
