Charged with a DUI Causing Injury? Our Team 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 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
DUI defense attorney possesses the in-depth knowledge of Tennessee laws and proceedings

years and a fine of up to $50,000.
