You need a lawyer - badly. Do not discuss your case further in this public forum or with anyone other than your lawyer. You are fortunate that there are some excellent DUI defense attorneys in your area, including one of the top notch DUI lawyers in Illinois. You can locate many qualified attorneys by calling your local bar association or by clicking on the Find a Lawyer tab at the top of this page.
Yes, on third DUI with personal injury of that magnitude, the potential incarceration is measured in years, not days, weeks, or months. On the other hand, DUIs where there is an accident involved can be difficult for the prosecution to prove. I have won many of these over the years. You are going to need an experienced Criminal defense trial lawyer, not somebody's brother in law who does real estate closings, but will do your case for a discount.
