What is Vehicular Assault?
Vehicular Assault is where somebody is injured as a result of reckless driving or driving under the influence. The injured party suffers serious bodily injury. Often times the person is seated in the same car as the driver. The injury must be proximately caused by the driving.
The dynamics in vehicular assault and vehicular homicide cases are like no other cases. There are victims and victim’s families that create a charged environment that must be navigated with respect and dignity. Even though the evidence may seem insurmountable, it is very important to test the conclusions made by the police, investigators, the crime lab, and the Ohio Department of Health. Mistakes are made and before you proceed to trial or enter a plea, you want to be sure every stone has been turned.
