Assault is the intent to cause serious physical injury to another person, often by means of a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument. Assaults can vary in degree from an A misdemeanor to a B felony and include:

 

AGGRAVATED ASSAULT


 

VEHICULAR ASSAULT & AGGRAVATED VEHICULAR ASSAULT

Vehicular assault is the same as vehicular manslaughter except that the other motorist or passenger receives a serious physical injury, instead of death. These charges generally result from reckless driving or driving while intoxicated, which result in injury to another driver or a passenger in the vehicle. Vehicle assault convictions can receive a sentence up to 15 years in state prison. 

If you are charged with vehicular assault in Rochester or Monroe County, it is important that you contact a lawyer who is experienced in automobile accidents, accident reconstruction, DWI law, and who has extensive trial experience. These are complicated and high-stakes cases where you have a lot to lose.
