DUI & Serious Injury Defense

Being charged with drunk driving in Pittsburgh is serious. But when the allegations involve an accident that results in serious injury, felony charges and serious time behind bars may result. Pittsburgh DUI Defense Attorney Blaine Jones is a veteran Pittsburgh criminal defense attorney who has represented more than 10,000 clients. A former public defender, Mr. Jones has dedicated his career to fighting for the rights of those facing serious misdemeanor and felony charges. A felony DUI injury charge in Pittsburgh alleges that you were driving drunk when you caused an injury accident. Aggravated assault while under the influence is even more serious. If convicted, such a conviction can also be used against you in a civil case for property or personal injury damages.

Pittsburgh DUI Defense: Injury Accidents

Accident enhancements in Pennsylvania DUI injury cases include:

  • Felony DUI Injury: Can include any injury, regardless of how minor, to someone other than the defendant. A first-offense conviction for DUI with injury can result in a mandatory jail sentence.
  • Aggravated Assault while Under the Influence: Can result when a DUI case involves serious injury to someone other than the defendant.

Fighting such charges means fighting the underlying allegation that you were driving under the influence of alcohol. In cases where a DUI charge is dismissed, or it cannot be proven that a driver was operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, he or she will not be convicted of the more serious charges of felony DUI injury or aggravated assault while under the influence.
