GREAT BODILY INJURY – PC § 12022.7


Great Bodily Injury is a sentencing enhancement that can be added on to your assault case that will guarantee you an extra 3 years in state prison.  It is defined loosely as a “significant or substantial injury.”  This, like many other allegations related to assault charges, is a matter of degree and takes an attorney like Pat Carey with an experienced trial practice background to defend.  Great bodily injury can be anything from a few stitches to a broken back or paralysis.
