DUI with Injury
Serious Bodily Injury in DUI Accidents
Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is extremely reckless and dangerous. Every year, more than 10,000 victims suffer injury in a DUI-related traffic accident in the state of Florida. Because of these high numbers, state law provides severe penalties for individuals who cause property damage and / or bodily injury in an accident. Drunk drivers who cause injury to another in a DUI accident will be charged with a misdemeanor offense and face a maximum fine of $1,000 and a possible jail sentence of up to one year.
These penalties only increase with the severity of the injury. If a victim suffers serious bodily injury (impairing, disabling, disfiguring, or life-threatening), the offense is charged as a felony DUI with penalties including a maximum fine of $5,000 and a state prison sentence of up to five years. Conviction of any of the above will also result in driver's license suspension, which will require you to request a DMV hearing within 10 days if you wish to keep your driving privileges until your court case is complete.
