Charged With Vehicular Homicide Or Manslaughter? Contact Us.

When you are involved in a traffic accident that takes another person's life, it may not be considered "just an accident" by police investigators. They may determine you committed the crime of vehicular manslaughter if:

  • You were violating a traffic law at the time of the crash.
  • You were driving negligently such as by not keeping a careful eye on the cars in front of you.
  • You were driving recklessly.
  • You deliberately caused the crash with the purpose of committing insurance fraud and someone died as a result.

The person who died in a vehicular manslaughter case may have been:

  • Another motorist
  • A passenger in your car
  • A pedestrian or bicyclist

Criminal charges may come even if the person was your own family member and it was very obviously an accident. As long as there is any element of negligence attributed to you, you may be charged with this offense. If you were also drunk or under the influence of drugs, your charges may be more serious, but any vehicular manslaughter charges are serious and may result in a jail time, costly penalties and a criminal record.
