Los Angeles DUI Accident Attorney

What Happens If I Had An Accident Involving DUI?

If you have been involved in an accident and arrested for DUI you could face serious charges, particularly if anyone was injured or killed in the accident. If convicted, you could be charged with a felony and sentenced up to 6 years imprisonment for injuring someone and up to 10 years in prison if a person loses their life in the accident. There have been cases where even further imprisonment was imposed when an individual lost their life due to a DUI involved accident. Your license would also be suspended for some time. It is crucial that you contact an experienced DUI lawyer if you have been arrested for a DUI and it involved an accident.

These types of cases require a very thorough investigation by a DUI defense lawyer that is well versed in both the criminal side of the DUI charge as well as the accident side of the investigation. An independent investigator may be retained to fully investigate the scene of the accident. Possibly you were not at fault in the accident despite the charges. Accidents occur in Southern California regularly. If someone had been drinking, they might be accused even though they were not at fault and their alcohol level was not above the legal limit.

Contact Cron, Israels & Stark to get competent advice regarding the direction the investigation surrounding your accident should take in order to obtain the most favorable results possible. Our legal team will investigate all aspects of your case with the goal in mind of reducing or eradicating the charges if at all possible.
