Tallahassee DUI with Injury Defense
Maintaining Possibly Severe Penalties
When a person operates a motor vehicle while intoxicated, they face an increased risk of causing an accident. Because alcohol greatly depresses the nervous system, an inebriated person will experience slowed reaction times when behind the wheel, making it easier to become involved in an accident.
Common DUI defense strategies include:
- Improper stop by police
- Officer failed to follow proper field sobriety test procedure
- Medical conditions
- Violation in Miranda Rights
Any time a person drives under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and causes an accident that results in another person’s injuries or death, the driver will face increased penalties. DUI with injury is a serious criminal offense, and if you have been charged with this crime you will need immediate representation from a DUI attorney at our law firm.

Tallahassee DUI With Injury Attorneys
At the law offices of Jansen & Davis, P.A., our lawyers represent people in Tallahassee who have been charged with DUI causing injury. If you were driving, then became involved in an accident, and then were charged with DUI, you could be facing some very harsh penalties if convicted.
Law enforcement, judges, and prosecutors take DUI offenses very seriously, especially when an innocent victim is injured or killed because of an intoxicated driver. You will need an experienced DUI attorney who can make them see the case objectively, and will fight to prove your innocence.
Challenging the Prosecution
Police and investigators often make the assumption that if two or more drivers are involved in an accident, and one of the drivers is drunk, the drunk driver is responsible. As our lawyers have seen this is not always the case, and the drunk driver is not necessarily the one always responsible for causing an accident and a person’s resulting injuries.
In cases such as these, your Tallahassee DUI lawyer will work hard to prove that even though you may have been legally intoxicated, you did not cause the accident, and this could mean having your DUI with injury charges reduced to a simple DUI, which will entail less severe penalties.
