Driving under the influence and being involved in a serious car accident involving death or a physical injury can lead to significant punishment and consequences.
Arizona treats cars as deadly weapons or dangerous instruments, and so if you drive while impaired and seriously injure or kill someone you may face vehicular manslaughter charges or charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Convictions for either lead to long mandatory prison sentences among other penalties.
If you are arrested on suspicion of DUI in Carefree or Cave Creek and the DUI involved a car accident, then it is imperative that you contact an attorney as soon as possible.
