Miami, FL DUI with Injury Charges

Legal Protection from a Florida DUI Attorney

When a driver who has been drinking or who is thought to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs is involved in an auto accident, law enforcement and others are likely to lay the blame of the accident on his or her shoulders - even if there is a good chance that the "drunk" driver did not cause the accident.

If you were involved in an auto accident and have been blamed for causing the collision, you may be in danger of facing felony charges. Florida law is particularly harsh on criminal offenders accused of causing injury to others while driving under the influence (DUI).

Commonly referred to as "DUI with injury" or "DUI causing injury," this offense involves causing an auto accident while one has a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or greater or while one's normal abilities are impaired due to alcohol or drugs.

Penalties for DUI with Injury in Florida

Without a lawyer at your side to defend your rights and help you avoid a conviction, you may face the following penalties in Florida for a DUI with injury conviction:

  • DUI causing property damage or personal injury - first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
  • DUI causing serious bodily injury - third degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
  • DUI manslaughter - causing the death of another person while DUI is a second degree felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000 (enhanced charges and penalties may be imposed if the driver is also accused of leaving the scene of the accident.)

DUI Manslaughter Law in Miami, Florida

Perhaps the most serious DUI allegation one can face, DUI manslaughter involves a person causing death to another or to an "unborn quick child" while driving under the influence (DUI) of drugs or alcohol.

According to Title XXIII § 316.193, DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony offense and is punishable by severe and numerous criminal penalties. Although cases and punishments may vary, this charge carries a mandatory minimum term of imprisonment of four years.

Should there be any additional aggravating circumstances involved in your case, such as a prior DUI conviction, a high blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level, or the failure to request medical attention for an injured party, these criminal penalties can be significantly enhanced.
