If you are facing charges such as vehicular homicide, vehicular assault, or any other felony offense related to drunk driving or unlawful operation of a motor vehicle, an experienced attorney can help.
Under certain circumstances, such as unlawful blood alcohol concentration or fleeing a police officer, fatal or serious injury accidents that would otherwise be treated as noncriminal negligence can be charged as felony vehicular offenses, including homicide and assault. These distinctions can make all the difference in your exposure to punishment and the possibility of a suspended sentence as opposed to years in prison.
As former prosecutors, judges, and police officers, the attorneys at our firm have the experience needed to help you. We understand the other side’s position, and we understand how to craft a strong defense. This knowledge and experience benefits our clients.
Felony charges such as vehicular homicide, aggravated vehicular manslaughter, or vehicular assault can result from accidents involving any one or more of the following circumstances:
- Drunk driving charges such as OVI or DUI
- Reckless driving
- Eluding a law enforcement officer
- Unauthorized use of a motor vehicle
- Driving on a suspended license
- Operating an illegally modified vehicle
- Racing on the street or highway
