DUI Causing Injury Penalties in California

According to California legal statutes, a “DUI causing injury” charge can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The charges will be escalated depending on your tested blood alcohol content (BAC) level at the time of your arrest, your driving record, how extensive the reported injuries were, and other factors unique to your case.

A misdemeanor DUI causing injury can be penalized with:

  • 5 days to 364 days in jail
  • Up to $5,000 in fines
  • Up to 30 months in California “DUI school”
  • 1 to 3 year license suspension

Felony DUI causing injury convictions might include:

  • 2 to 4 years in prison; 5 to 10 if someone suffered serious injury
  • Up to 3 additional years if multiple people are harmed
  • One “Strike” under California’s Three Strike Law
  • Up to $5,000 in fines but no less than $1,000
  • 18 or 30 month DUI schooling
  • 5 year revocation – not suspension – of driver’s license

In both misdemeanors and felonies, the decision of the criminal court can be to order the offender to pay for the victim’s recovery. For serious injuries, this could mean paying tens of thousands of dollars or more in medical bills in addition to other penalties.
