Criminal Law DUI Accidents
While a DUI charge carry serious penalties in Pennsylvania, additional charges can be added that enhance possible sentences when drunk driving results in a motor vehicle accident. District attorneys are aggressive in proving that serious and permanent injuries suffered in an accident are directly related to the actions of the drunk driver.
Additional charges include:
- Aggravated assault
- Reckless endangerment
- Vehicular homicide
