DUI Property Damage Your Fight Is Our Fight

DUI Property Damage Lawyer in Miami

Award-Winning Representation & Trusted DUI Defense

DUI is a well-known offense in the United States, as it is the number-one cause of death on the nation’s roadways. Driving under the influence has taken countless lives as well as property, which is why many states impose enhanced penalties for DUI offenses that result in property damage. Although the penalties for damaging property are less severe than for harming people, the consequences of a conviction are detrimental, nonetheless.

DUI with property damage accusations are additional charges that carry additional penalties, such as increased fines and time in prison. Not to mention, they will appear on your criminal record as separate from your original DUI charge, meaning a potential employer or landlord will see multiple crimes appear on your record if convicted. To best overcome your accusations, retain a Miami DUI property damage attorney with over 30 years of experience and invaluable prosecutorial insights. These advantages have benefitted the thousands of cases I’ve handled for every single client, every single time.

Laws & Penalties for DUI with Property Damage in Florida

According to Florida Statute Section 316.193(3)(c)1, a person who operates a vehicle while under the influence and causes property damage is guilty of a first-degree misdemeanor punishable by one year in prison and/or $1,000 fines. This charge is not included within your initial DUI charge but rather a separate offense that enhances the penalties and seriousness of your alleged DUI crime altogether. If you were not accused of causing property damage during your reported offense, your DUI penalties would be $500 to $1,000 fines and/or 6 months in prison (for a first DUI conviction).

Examples of DUI with Property Damage

Many times, DUI results in damage to people or properties. Although people’s lives are more valuable than property, the government will treat your allegations as if your DUI caused injuries or death.

Property damage can occur to many things, including:

  • Mailboxes
  • Street signs
  • Streetlights
  • Traffic lights
  • Sidewalks
  • Vehicles
  • Buildings
  • Fences
  • Driveways
  • Landscape

Depending on the type of property that was allegedly struck, it can sustain various types of damage, such as:

  • Dents
  • Breaks
  • Tears
  • Burns
  • Scratches
