What is a DUI with Injury?

DUI with injury, or a DUI causing an injury, is a very serious offense where a driver who has a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08% or higher or whose normal abilities are impaired because of taking alcohol and/or drugs causes an accident resulting in injury to another person. The injury may be minor, or may be serious or even life-threatening. The severity of the injuries determine whether the defendant faces a misdemeanor or felony charge.
