What is Vehicular Manslaughter?
If a person operates a motor vehicle in a reckless or negligent manner and causes the death of another person, they may be guilty of vehicular manslaughter. To be negligent or reckless a person can be exhibiting a variety of different behaviors while driving. They include, but are not limited to:
- Sudden turns
- Drunk driving
In a vehicular manslaughter case, intent does not play a large role. The prosecutor only has to prove that the driver did not have control of the vehicle at the time of the accident. Intent is rarely considered in this type of case. All that is needed, is for the prosecutor to prove that the driver of the vehicle was being overly reckless or negligent in how they were driving. With this type of charge, a person convicted of vehicular manslaughter will be sentenced to a considerable amount of time behind bars.

Our team will investigate every aspect of your accident. We have several resources at our disposal, including accident reconstruction specialists.
