Serious Injury by Vehicle in Georgia

Serious Injury by Vehicle in Georgia

If a DUI results in an injury that can be categorized as “serious,” you could not only face the penalties of a DUI, but you could be charged with Serious Injury by Vehicle.

Under Georgia law, a serious injury includes:

  • Loss of a body part
  • A member of the body becoming useless
  • Disfigurement
  • Organic brain damage

Serious Injury by Vehicle is considered a felony offense.

A conviction can result in a minimum of one year to a maximum of 15 years in prison. Penalties or jail time could increase if you have a prior DUI conviction or have a high blood alcohol content at the time of the accident.

It is important to note that before you are convicted of serious injury by vehicle, the state must first prove that you are guilty of DUI or reckless driving.
