Charges for DUI With Injury

Chicago DUI Defense Lawyer

At the The Toney Law Firm, LLC, clients are treated as individuals deserving of respect. It is understood that being arrested for DUI can be a frightening and sometimes humiliating experience. This can be especially true if your arrest for DUI involved injury to another. Loss of driving privileges, mandatory community service, fines and possible jail time are commonly the penalties one faces for a DUI, even a first time offense.

Penalties for DUI With Injury

If convicted of an aggravated DUI involving an injury to another, you could be imprisoned for up to a year, have to perform 100 hours of community service, pay fines up to $2,500 and lose your driving privileges for at least 1 year. You may also be required to have a breath alcohol ignition interlock device (BAIID) installed in your vehicle.

Multiple DUI convictions involving injuries can result in fines up to $25,000, felony charges, and lifetime revocation of your driver's license and up to 30 years in prison. With all that is at stake in your life or that of a loved one, the firm recommends use of an experienced and knowledgeable Chicago DUI attorney to work towards the successful defense of the charges against you.

Effective Defenses in Illinois Drunk Driving Cases

Prosecutors can be pressed to prove that there was, in fact, a traffic violation and not just that a person was intoxicated. Key factors to a positive outcome in your case are thorough investigation of the accident site, police reports, statements from witnesses and any breath or blood tests that were performed. At times, these can illustrate a vastly different scene than prosecutors could try to portray. Sometimes other elements such as the condition of the road, poor weather conditions, mechanical failures and traffic violations by other drivers can be the actual cause of an accident.

Attorney Sarah Toney feels it is important that you have a lawyer you can trust and one that has a working knowledge of the DUI laws and evidence. An accident with resultant injuries and property damage can commonly be quite enough to have to face, let alone battling prosecutors by yourself. Competent legal help can make all the difference in a DUI case involving bodily harm.

If you or a loved one has been charged with a DUI involving injury to another, please contact a Chicago DUI Defense Lawyer immediately.
