Is a DUI accident a felony?
To be charged with a felony DUI in Nevada when an accident occurs, 1 of 2 aggravating factors must be present. Either a death occurred because of the DUI, or substantial bodily harm occurred. Many accidents involving DUIs are typically misdemeanor offenses, even if an accident occurred.
You may also be charged with a felony DUI if you have already been convicted of a felony DUI or this is a 3rd DUI offense within 7 years.
