We Are Here To Serve You

An aggravated DUI causing death in Illinois occurs when the prosecution can establish all the elements of a DUI along with proving beyond a reasonable doubt that the proximate cause of the death of another person was the driving while under the influence of alcohol or under the influence of drugs. What this means is that it is simply not enough that the defendant was guilty of a DUI where someone died. Instead, the prosecution must establish that the person died as a result of the DUI. For example, if the deceased blew threw a red light and crashed into a car whose driver happened to be under the influence that is not enough to establish that the DUI driver guilty of aggravated DUI causing death because he or she was not the proximate cause of the death. In this scenario, the DUI driver could still be found guilty of a misdemeanor DUI or even an aggravated DUI if any of the aggravating factors were present.

In aggravated DUI causing death cases all the issues and defenses that are available in all DUI cases are also present. In addition, to all the regular defenses an additional defense is that the person was not the proximate cause of the death because the other driver or other factors were the proximate cause of the death and not the fact that the person was under the influence at the time of the fatal accident.

What Client’s Say

I can’t say enough great things about Omar Jaleel. I hired Omar to help a family member, who suffers from addition, ordered to a rehab facility for 15 months instead of being sentenced to jail. It took some time but he was dedicated and made it happen. A very difficult task in an overcrowded judicial system. Thank you for everything Omar.
