Drunk Driving Causing Serious Injury

Drunk Driving Causing Serious Injury

Drunk driving causing serious injury is a crime under Michigan law, specifically at MCL 257.625. In the state of Michigan, a drunk driving accident that results in serious injury carries a 5 year penalty. These types of cases are the most difficult to respond to as a lawyer and as an accused because the victim is hurt and usually will have outward signs of injury when you go to court. You will need a DUI lawyer who can help neutralize the jury’s emotions as well as those of the other people involved in the case. Drunk driving causing serious injury is a serious charge and it requires serious representation. Two of our East Lansing lawyers, Mike Nichols and Karen Phillips, are certified by the manufacturer of the breath test device used in Michigan as competent in the theory and operation of the Datamaster. If you need an East Lansing law firm that is committed to results and will overturn every stone for you, call the Nichols Law Firm at 517.432.9000 or mnichols@nicholslaw.net now!
