VEHICULAR ASSAULT

Vehicular assault is a very serious charge requiring the services of an experienced and accomplished Denver criminal attorney.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, a person can be charged with vehicular assault if the individual drives a motor vehicle in a reckless manner, and the individual’s conduct is the proximate cause of serious bodily injury to another. A person can also be charged with vehicular assault if the individual drives a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs and the individual’s conduct is the proximate cause of a serious bodily injury to another. Vehicular assault is a strict liability crime.

Even if a person charged with vehicular assault is or has been entitled to use one or more drugs under Colorado law, such circumstance will not constitute a defense against a vehicular assault charge.

Depending upon the circumstances of the case, vehicular assault can be a class 4 felony or a class 5 felony.
