Mesa DUI Lawyer - DUI With Injury Lawyer or Death - Board Certified DUI Specialist

DUI Accidents Causing Injury or Death

If you are involved in an accident which results in injury or death to another person while you are driving under the influence, you can be charged with aggravated DUI, Aggravated Assault or even DUI Homicide. This is a felony offense and carries harsh penalties so it is important that you retain the services of an experienced Mesa DUI lawyer to launch an aggressive defense on your behalf. The exact penalties imposed after conviction will depend upon several factors, including the specific nature of your charges, whether they are labeled as dangerous or non-dangerous and your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) as measured by blood, breath or urine. If convicted, you may face the following for a first time aggravated DUI offense:

  • Mandatory prison for crimes designated as "dangerous" offenses
  • Maximum fines of $150,000.00
  • Driver’s license revocation for up to 3 years or more
  • Possible vehicle impoundment
  • Driving record points
  • Having to reapply for your license and pay reinstatement fees
  • Mandatory traffic school
  • Higher assessment fees
  • Required use of an ignition interlock device
  • Mandatory drug/alcohol screening and counseling
  • Community work service
  • Probation of up to 5 years
  • A permanent mark on your criminal record

Penalties for Injuries Caused by DUI

If you are facing DUI charges resulting in injury, it is important that you retain experienced legal counsel, as the consequences of a conviction are significant, and may include mandatory prison. Mr. Buckallew has extensive experience in handling the defense of DUI cases and a strong understanding of our often-complicated criminal justice system, and will vigorously defend your case in court. Mr. Buckallew has significant experience resolving difficult criminal cases utilizing pre-trial negotiations, settlement conferences and, where appropriate, contested trials - including both bench trials and jury trials. After obtaining his law degree, and later, his master's degree, Mr. Buckallew continues to further his knowledge and skills through continuing legal education (CLE) and other criminal defense related courses on an ongoing basis. He has studied at the Institute for Criminal Defense Advocacy - Trial Skills Academy, the National College of DUI Defense (NCDD) and is also a member of the American Academy of Forensic Science (AAFS).
