Experienced DuPage County Aggravated DUI Attorneys
Driving under the influence (DUI) is taken very seriously in the State of Illinois, and the consequences for a DUI conviction are severe. The consequences for a DUI resulting in serious bodily injury are even more severe. In Illinois, a DUI
offense that results in serious bodily injury is a special Class 4 felony. If you are convicted on this charge, you could face 1-12 years in prison, up to $25,000 in fines and driver’s license suspension of at least 2 years. At Ramsell & Associates, LLC, we have the knowledge and experience to effectively defend you against these charges. Our firm is nationally recognized as a top DUI defense firm because we know how to protect our clients and their freedom.
Aggravated DUI Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury
If you are accused of driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs and you are involved in an accident in which someone other than yourself was subjected to great bodily harm, permanent disability or disfigurement, you will be charged with an aggravated DUI. In these cases, it does not matter if you are at fault for the accident or not. Essentially, the prosecution only has to show that you were indeed under the influence while in control of a vehicle involved in the accident in order to prove this charge.
There are numerous ways to successfully defend against aggravated DUI charges including challenging the validity of breath, blood and urine test results. At Ramsell & Associates, LLC, our attorneys are well versed in DUI case law and experienced in contesting evidence based on improper procedures and other grounds. Our founding partner, Attorney Donald J. Ramsell, is one of the top DUI practitioners in the state.
