Vehicular Assault Dichter Law Office - Leaders in DUI Defense

Lynnwood Vehicular Assault Attorney

Representation You Can Trust

If you were the driver of a vehicle and your reckless actions caused an accident resulting in substantial bodily harm to another person, you can be charged with vehicular assault. This includes vehicle operators driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, regardless of their level of impairment. Vehicular assault is a Class B felony and punishable by:

  • Up to 5 years in prison
  • Fines of up to $10,0000
  • Alcohol evaluation and treatment (DUI)
  • Complete the Washington State Alcohol Safety Action Program (DUI)
  • Attendance at a DUI victim's panel (DUI)
  • Vehicle impoundment
  • Community service
  • Driver's license suspension
  • Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device

Penalties can be especially harsh if there is a prior history of DUI convictions. If the person that was injured dies within three years of the accident, you will be charged with vehicular homicide, a Class A felony with the potential for life imprisonment.

Vehicular assault is a serious criminal offense that can have life-long consequences if your case results in a conviction. Our founding attorney is a competent Lynnwood criminal defense lawyer who has years of experience in felony and DUI cases, including vehicular assault. Our firm will ensure your case is thoroughly investigated and all possible defense options are fully explored.
