If you were driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs (DUI) and you caused an accident that resulted in the death of another person, you could face charges for DUI involuntary manslaughter. Sometimes referred to as vehicular manslaughter, this is a felony offense that could result in the loss of your driver’s license, fines and prison time if you are convicted. Such a conviction could also impact your livelihood if driving is a requirement of your job.

Providing Customized Solutions In Complex Criminal Defense Matters
In any case that involves the death of an individual and an allegedly intoxicated driver, prosecutors frequently default to an accusation of DUI manslaughter. In many cases, however, our clients were not at fault for the accident and should never have been implicated in the victim’s death. If we find evidence that another party may have been at fault for the victim’s death, we will use it to dismantle the prosecutor’s case against you.
If you were at fault for an accident that resulted in another person’s death, we can still present a defense that minimizes the impact of any charges against you. We can challenge the DUI evidence and work to suppress any evidence that was obtained illegally. In every case, our only concern is to resolve the matter in a way that provides the most benefit to you and your family.
