Drunk driving leads to many accidents across the country. Some of these accidents are minor fender benders, but others can lead to serious injuries. We know that these matters are sensitive, both for the clients and the victims in these accidents and their loved ones. When you meet with a DUI attorney from our film about your injury accident case, we will be sure to provide counsel with seriousness and compassion given the nature of these kinds of accidents.
Auto accidents that result in injury can be very serious, changing the lives of victims as well as their loved ones. If you are charged with a DUI and caused an accident that results in the injury of other motorists, passengers, and/or pedestrians, you will be charged with an aggravated DUI.
Aggravated DUI is also known as felony DUI. It involves driving under the influence or while intoxicated while committing another crime. In addition to being charged with aggravated DUI for injury accidents, aggravated DUI charges can also apply to DUI without a valid license, multiple DUIs in a given period, and DUI while a person younger than age 15 is in the vehicle.
