Auto Accidents & Drug Charges in Denver
|Denver Vehicular Assault
A Colorado vehicular assault charge can result when a defendant is charged with causing an accident while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. The criminal charges carry a substantial threat of serious jail time and a defendant faces serious financial liability in the event that a personal injury lawsuit is filed by the victim.
The Law Firm of Jeremy Rosenthal offers comprehensive defense against vehicular assault charges in Colorado. Our criminal defense lawyers will immediately begin building your defense against the assault charge, as well as any related drug charges. In consultation with our DUI defense and personal injury departments, we will fight the criminal charges against you while working to limit your civil liability as a result of the accident.
Before you can be found guilty of a Colorado vehicular assault charge, the state must prove that you were driving recklessly or under the influence of alcohol or drugs and that your actions were the “proximate cause” of the accident.
Our Denver vehicular assault attorneys and DUI lawyers believe that the best defense to both allegations is an aggressive offense. Our team will assemble a group of investigators, attorneys and outside experts who have the knowledge and experience to challenge the DUI/Drugs charge as well as the claim that you were responsible for the accident.
- Challenging a Denver DUI/Drug Charge: After a through review of your case, our team will challenge the DUI charge against you. This may include independent testing of blood results; calling into question the conduct of officers involved; challenging items seized during a search of your person, home or automobile; filing motions to suppress evidence in court; and working with the state’s attorneys to seek a reduction or dismissal of the charges against you.
- Accident Investigation: While preparing a thorough defense of the DUI/Drugs charge, we will conduct a complete review of the accident, which may include hiring outside experts or conducting an independent accident reconstruction on your behalf. If it can be proven that you were not substantially at fault in the accident, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed.
When a defendant is facing a charge of DUI/Drugs, he or she is usually found at-fault in the accident by law enforcement at the scene – regardless of what really caused the accident. In such cases, the focus of law enforcement shifts to gathering evidence of your guilt. An independent investigation may reveal other causes that result in the injury accident. The actions of other drivers at the scene, overgrown vegetation, road conditions, missing or inoperable street signs or traffic control devices, and even a vehicle defect may have been the true cause of the accident.
By attacking the case on both fronts – the allegation that you were under the influence and the assertion that you caused the accident – our firm will send a clear message to the state that we are fully prepared to fight for your rights. In the event that we are not able to use this position of strength to negotiate an outcome that is acceptable to you and your defense team, we will be ready to take your defense into the courtroom.
