Defending You Against Charges of Reckless or Intentional Conduct
Normally, if you injure someone in an auto or boating accident, you do not get charged with a crime. However, if you are accused of behaving recklessly and someone has gotten hurt, you could be charged with vehicular assault. The following are examples of reckless conduct:
- Driving while intoxicated (alcohol or drugs)
- Road rage incidents
- Drag racing accidents
- Boating accidents
You can also be charged with vehicular assault if the police believe you intentionally hit someone else with your car, boat, motorcycle or other vehicles. Either way, these are serious charges that could leave you with a permanent blot on your criminal record.
If you hire me to represent you, I will carefully investigate the facts of your accident to build and advance a strong defense. Don’t hesitate to call me at 609-390-4600 to discuss what I can do to aggressively defend you against your vehicular assault charges.
