Serious Injury by Vehicle
Normally, a car accident resulting in death or injury is treated as a civil matter. But an accident caused by an alleged drunk driver, road rage or reckless driving can be treated as a felony crime. Needless to say, the penalties upon conviction are potentially severe, including possible prison time.
If you have been charged with vehicular homicide or serious injury by vehicle in Georgia, you need more than your everyday DUI defense lawyer. You need effective representation by an experienced, aggressive and determined felony defense attorney.
