Defense Against Vehicular Manslaughter Charges
A vehicular manslaughter charge holds a defendant liable for a death that results from his or her reckless disregard of traffic safety laws. The accident can happen on private land or a public street or highway. It is a serious crime that can result in a lengthy prison term and harm your career and reputation.
Vehicular manslaughter occurs when a person, unintentionally but acting in a culpable negligent manner, causes the death of another while driving a car. Often, these charges also include driving under the influence (DUI) charges. If a serious injury or death occurs, the criminal charge may include what is known as an enhanced DUI crime.
These cases are complicated and often require technical assistance from an accident reconstruction expert.
