Massachusetts OUI WITH INJURY LAWYER
OUI ACCIDENTS WITH INJURY
If you caused serious injury or vehicular manslaughter due to operating under the influence, you will be prosecuted harshly. Massachusetts government and state law enforcement take OUI offenses very seriously, and if you caused an accident that led to injury, you will face strict penalties. Serious bodily injury as defined under Mass General Laws is a bodily injury which creates a substantial risk of death, or that involves either total disability or the loss or significant impairment of some bodily function for a substantial period of time.
PENALTIES FOR CAUSING AN INJURY WITH OUI
If you are charged with causing injury because you were driving under the influence, you need to retain the services of a Massachusetts OUI attorney. Under Massachusett's law, OUI- serious bodily injury can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Both charges possess a mandatory two (2) year loss of license. In addition, a felony charge carries a mandatory minimum jail sentence of six (6) months. Additional penalties could include:
- Mandatory alcohol treatment
- Community service
- Heavy fines
- Restitution to the victims
- Jail or prison sentence
Beyond these potential penalties, if found guilty, you will also be a convicted felon, which may affect your ability to gain employment and hurt your standing in the community.
