DUI with Bodily Injury

DUI with Bodily Injury | Melbourne DUI Attorney

If you have been arrested for DUI with injury in Brevard County, Florida, the Melbourne Criminal Defense Attorneys at The Canina Law Firm can help navigate you through the legal system and vigorously defend your legal rights and freedoms.

In Florida, a person may face enhanced DUI penalties if, while committing the crime of DUI, damages the property of another or causes bodily injury to another. DUI with personal injury or property damage may be prosecuted as a first degree misdemeanor, and is punishable by up to 1 year in Brevard County Jail. If convicted, the person may also face a maximum fine of $1,000 and probation for up to 1 year. A DUI involving a collision that results in serious bodily injury to another may be charged as a third degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and/or a $5000 fine.

Because of the harsh penalties associated with this type of charge, your best protection is to retain an experienced Brevard County DUI lawyer at the earliest possible stage of your case. If you are facing these serious charges, then do not hesitate to speak with a Melbourne DUI attorney at our firm today. Contact us.

Injury vs. Serious Injury

What is the difference between "injury" and "serious injury" when it comes to a DUI arrest? Typically, regular personal injury will involve an injury that heals quickly and does not cause lasting or permanent damage. A serious injury usually involves injuries, both psychological and physical, that are permanently debilitating. Your accident may have wrongfully been classified as a "serious injury" case, in which case our firm can step in and argue against the enhancement in your charge. When an injury occurs during a DUI, the driver’s license revocation imposed may be longer than a DUI without Injuries.
