Dedicated and Experienced Vehicular Manslaughter Defense Counsel
Injuring someone with your car or truck can lead to criminal charges such as vehicular assault. If the person who is struck passes away due to the injuries that were suffered in the accident, you may then be charged with vehicular manslaughter. There are other aggravating factors involved with these crimes, including driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, that can make the consequences you face even greater.
