DUI Charges in Cases of Vehicle Accidents

When another person has been injured in a collision, the charge of “assault by auto,” or “death by auto” could be filed by the prosecutor, with very serious personal and legal consequences. It is advised that you exercise your right to remain silent and contact the Law Office of Steven Ellman at once if you are accused of DUI driving resulting in an accident – your future freedom may depend on the actions taken by your lawyer.

A DUI offense that involves an injury accident is a very serious legal matter. A driver who is convicted of this offense may face jail or prison time, license suspension for years, expensive fines, community service, a damaged reputation, and a felony criminal record.

You deserve to be represented by an attorney who is compassionate, has a record of positive jury verdicts, and can take on the opposition with total confidence. Call today at (609) 293-4556 or contact us online.
