Vehicular Assault / DUI Causing Injury
Our Nashville DUI Attorney Will Fight for You
If you think being charged with a
DUI is bad enough, seriously injuring another individual in association with
a DUI offense results in a vehicular assault charge. Also, if you injure
another individual while drunk driving in combination with two other concurrent
or past DUI violations (including vehicular assault or vehicular homicide
convictions), or if your BAC was at .20 or more when arrested for vehicular
homicide and you have one previous DUI or vehicular assault conviction,
you may be charged with aggravated vehicular assault.

freedom. As a former prosecutor, our Nashville DUI attorney possesses
the in-depth knowledge of Tennessee DUI laws and proceedings from both
sides of the courtroom in order to help you navigate through the complexities
of your case.
Penalties for Vehicular Assault
Causing serious injury to another individual due to drunk driving is considered
a Class D felony, which is punishable by a prison sentence between two
to 12 years and a fine of up to $5,000. However, an aggravated vehicular
assault charge is a Class A felony, punishable by a prison sentence between
15 and 50 years and a fine of up to $50,000.
