If Your DUI Caused An Injury, You Need A Skilled Attorney
Being charged with a DUI is scary enough. Add injuries into the mix and you could be facing serious consequences. I am William Walraven, founder of the Law Offices of William Walraven. I fight tirelessly for clients throughout California who are at risk of being convicted. I examine all of the facts and create a strategy that aims to achieve the best possible outcome. I am communicative, professional and compassionate.
What Makes A DUI With Injuries Different?
In more and more states, when an accident happens, mandatory testing has now become the norm. This means all drivers, passengers and pedestrians who are injured in an accident have to take a blood alcohol content (BAC) test. If a death occurred, it has to be done within 24 hours of the accident. This is not applicable, however, if the deceased person is 15 years old or younger.
If you are found to be over the legal limit, which is 0.08, or 0.04 if you are driving a commercial vehicle, you could be charged with a DUI that caused injuries. You could be criminally charged, which could result in three years in jail and up to $5,000 in fines. You could also lose your license for up to three years. At the civil level, the injured party and family could sue you for damages.
Understandably, this is a lot to deal with on your own. Use my knowledge and experience to your advantage. As a DUI defense lawyer, I have built strong relationships with both judges and prosecutors. They know I come prepared and will fight tirelessly for my clients. This can make all the difference when facing serious accusations.
