Penalties for Causing Serious Injury While OWI

In the state of Michigan, persons accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated face serious criminal penalties, especially if that impairment causes serious injury to another person in the vehicle. Police and prosecutors will attempt to prove that alcohol consumption led to a car accident and injury of a passenger, and your quick action to secure the best criminal defense lawyer is imperative to fighting these accusations. At Grabel & Associates, we work to aggressively defend every client facing charges of OUIL Causing Serious Bodily Injury, and will protect your rights throughout the criminal process.

Prosecutor's Burden of Proof in a OUIL Causing Injury Case

When facing OUIL charges in Michigan, it is important to work with a skilled attorney who understands the intricate details of your case and can build a thorough defense. If you operate a motor vehicle after consuming alcohol, police and prosecutors do not need to prove that your blood alcohol content was above the legal limit of 0.08. Rather, they must prove that your ability to operate a vehicle was impaired by liquor consumption. If this impairment leads to serious impairment of a body function of another person, you could be found guilty of a felony, according to the Michigan Vehicle Code, Section 257.625.

An OUIL Causing Serious Bodily Injury conviction will bring lasting restrictions on your freedom. You need a DUI defense attorney to help you fight damaging penalties and uphold your rights throughout the pre-file, trial, and post-conviction stages of your Michigan OUIL Causing Injury case. The sooner you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer, the better your results will be, so don’t hesitate. An attorney will immediately begin working on your OUIL case, and will continue to aggressively defend you until you obtain a great case outcome.

Imprisonment Time and Fine for OUIL Causing Serious Bodily Injury in Michigan

If police and prosecutors can prove that you operated a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcoholic liquor causing the serious impairment of a body function of another person, you could face imprisonment for up to 5 years and a fine of between $1,000 and $5,000. Additional restrictions such as forfeiting your vehicle and driving privileges could also apply.
