RCW 46.61.522 Vehicular Assault
This Washington State statute provides that a driver can be charged with vehicular assault if he or she seriously injures someone (causes substantial bodily harm) while:
- Driving recklessly
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (In the State of Washington, a driver is under the influence of alcohol if the alcohol concentration in their blood is 0.08 or higher.)
- Driving without the regard for the safety of others
When a driver is charged with Vehicular Assault, he or she is tried by the State of Washington. In addition, a personal injury law firm who is experienced in representing clients with serious personal injuries can represent the injured and file a claim for damages, for loss of wages, damage to the vehicle and for pain and suffering.
