Potential Penalties for an Allen DWI with a Wreck or Accident & Injuries

For any DWI involving an accident or wreck and injuries, the prosecutor will likely pursue felony criminal charges. The severity of the charges will depend on the nature of the accident and the extent of the victim’s injuries.

For a DWI accident that causes a life-threatening injury, you could face intoxication assault charges. If someone died, however, you will likely face first-degree felony intoxication manslaughter charges.

Potential DWI accident or wreck penalties that you may face include:

Third-Degree Felony

This charge typically accompanies a DWI accident with injuries. You could face this charge, though, for a DWI wreck that caused property damage if you had any aggravating circumstances, a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.15 or higher, or if you have prior offenses.

A third-degree felony conviction is punishable by:

  • Two to 10 years in prison
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Up to two years driver’s license suspension

Second-Degree Felony

This charge typically accompanies an intoxication assault offense if you have prior convictions, if you had a BAC of 0.15 or more, if you had any aggravating circumstances, if the victim was a first responder, or if you are subject to an intoxication manslaughter offense with no aggravating circumstances.

A second-degree felony conviction is punishable by:

  • Two to 20 years in prison
  • Up to $10,000 in fines
  • Up to two years driver’s license suspension

First-Degree Felony

A DWI accident or wreck with fatality means you will face first-degree felony charges if you had aggravating circumstances, BAC of 0.15 or above, prior offenses, or if your victim was a first responder.

A first-degree felony is punishable by:

  • Up to 99 years in prison
  • Up $10,000 in fines
  • Up to two years driver’s license suspension

Aggravating circumstances may include:

  • Having a passenger younger than 15
  • Having an open container of alcohol
  • Having driven in a reckless manner

In addition to the above penalties, you must pay all fees and costs associated with your case and attend alcohol education courses. The court may also assess penalties that include:

  • Supervised probation
  • Community service
  • Substance abuse treatment or counseling

You must also pay a surcharge of up to $2,000 to restore your driver’s license. This charge is due annually for a total of three years.

Your DWI accident and injury conviction will also go on your permanent record, which can potentially interfere with multiple aspects of your life. Your record can make it difficult for you to obtain employment, rent a home, get accepted into college, or hold professional licenses in Texas.
