CHARGED WITH A DUI WITH INJURY?
In one instant, your car was a twisted piece of metal and you heard the cries of another in the wreckage beside you. What just happened? You got in a crash and other parties have been injured. But worst of all, you had been drinking and now could have vehicular assault charges leveled against you.
When an injury results from another driver’s negligence, especially if the driver is under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, the driver will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. An intoxicated driver who causes an accident where another person is injured can be charged with vehicular assault.
Vehicular assault can entail any of the following:
- When a driver is driving recklessly and causes bodily harm
- When a driver is under the influence of alcohol/drugs and causes bodily harm
- When a driver has disregarded the safety of others and causes bodily harm
Prosecution will try very hard to level these charges against you, as frequently in a DUI accident with injury, it can be determined that the offender was drunk, and that driving recklessly with disregard towards others' safety occurred. Our Seattle DUI defense lawyers realize what clients are up against when facing vehicular assault charges. There are multiple aspects of a case which must be thoroughly examined by our law firm to determine if a person is responsible for another person’s injuries. Even if a driver is under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident, they are not necessarily responsible for the accident.
A vehicular assault is a class B felony which could result in a maximum sentence of years of imprisonment and thousands of dollars in fines- this criminal offense can be punishable by up to 5 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines. If you have a previous history of DUI, you are especially in trouble and should seek legal help immediately. For every injury caused, you can have one count of vehicular assault against you. Vehicular assault is one of the most severe criminal and traffic charges out there. Make sure you head into the courtroom with qualified legal defense by your side!
