Vehicular Manslaughter Defense Lawyer

When a driver’s actions contribute to the death of another, this is considered vehicular manslaughter. Although unintentional, because of the tragic consequences to the victim and their family, those convicted of vehicular manslaughter can face serious consequences. Georgia has some of the toughest laws regarding vehicular homicide, with felony convictions and prison terms of up to 15 years. If you or a loved one have been charged with this crime, you need an experienced criminal defense attorney who will fight for your freedom.

There are significant differences in the levels of vehicular manslaughter. Those charged in Georgia can be convicted of a lesser misdemeanor offense or may face a felony conviction. Both have possible imprisonment, but a misdemeanor may only result in little to no jail time, while felony vehicular manslaughter can be up to 15 years. Having a seasoned defense attorney like Dwayne L. Brown on your side is crucial to find the best legal options in handling your case.

Felony Vehicular Manslaughter Charges

When a death occurs during a car accident, there is always an investigation. Not all vehicular deaths result in manslaughter charges. However, when certain circumstances accompany a vehicular death, there are almost always charges filed against the at-fault driver. In Georgia these include:

  • Driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • Hit and run accidents
  • Reckless driving was involved
  • The driver was eluding a police officer
  • The driver was passing a school bus

The circumstances and history of the driver all can be important in defending a vehicular manslaughter case. Like any criminal case, having an experienced lawyer can make a significant difference in the outcome. If you have been charged with vehicular manslaughter, you can trust Dwayne L. Brown to give your case the time and attention it deserves. Contact our Atlanta office to schedule a consultation.
