Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

What if I Injured Someone While Driving Drunk in Texas? 

It’s not unusual for people to say that a DWI conviction isn’t that serious. They believe that it will only be a misdemeanor and that the charge on their record won’t affect them in the long-term. However, this isn’t always true. A misdemeanor DWI can affect your life in many negative ways.

In addition, not all DWI crimes are misdemeanors. For instance, if you were drinking and driving and injured someone in an accident, you could face felony charges. If that’s what happened to you, you might be wondering, “What if I injured someone while driving drunk in Texas?”

Penalties You Could Face if Convicted of Intoxication Assault

Intoxication assault is defined as a DWI in which a person sustained serious bodily injury because of an accident caused by your actions. This crime is a felony of the third degree in the state of Texas. If you are convicted of a felony of the third degree, you will likely serve time in prison, receive large fines, and you could be placed on probation.

In addition, your crime will go on your permanent record and affect your future. You might have difficulty securing employment, and you might not qualify for many government programs.
