Akron Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney
Our Attorneys Defend Individuals Accused of Vehicular Homicide
Vehicular Manslaughter is the killing of an individual caused by a vehicle. Vehicular Homicide is sometimes referred to as vehicular manslaughter interchangeably. Depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident, there could be many years of jail time and large fines. The prosecutor may attempt to charge you with negligent or reckless driving. If you were impaired or under the influence, the penalties are increased.
We Understand It was an Unintentional & Tragic Mistake
It is an overwhelming and tragic process to be facing a vehicular manslaughter charge. You may have been driving home after drinking a few drinks and wrecked into another vehicle causing a death. You may have been distracted while driving and failed to follow a basic traffic law, causing the accident. It was certainly unintentional and you never meant to hurt anyone.
Don’t Give a Police Statement Until Contacting an Attorney
When facing a vehicular homicide or manslaughter charge, it’s important not to make a statement to law enforcement once a criminal investigation has occurred until you contact an experienced attorney. You may be inadvertently admitting guilt or providing information that will be used against you. If a law enforcement agency approaches you, provide necessary information but don’t discuss details of accident without legal counsel.
