Facing a vehicular homicide charge is devastating, especially after a traumatic and fatal accident. If you are under investigation or are currently facing vehicular homicide charges, it is important to know your rights. At The Law Offices of Basil D. Beck III, I offer experienced and strategic support focused on defending your rights and minimizing consequences in vehicular homicide cases.
Accidents will happen. Unfortunately, if you are involved in an accident where you are also accused of drunk driving, you will likely need to prepare a strong defense against both criminal charges and civil, personal injury claims. If you are under investigation, it is important to refrain from making statements or talking to the police without your attorney present. I am experienced in handling vehicular homicide and manslaughter cases in which defendants are also facing DAI/DUI charges or allegations of drinking and driving. Do not hesitate to contact me as soon as possible following your accident.
In vehicular homicide cases, the prosecution must demonstrate that the driver was impaired and that the driver’s impairment was the cause of the accident. I will aggressively challenge the assumption that the impairment caused the accident and work to disprove the prosecution’s allegations of impairment. I will handle your case like a DUI defense, assessing the validity and/or legality of all evidence offered to prove impairment, including blood and alcohol tests, police records, witness statements and video surveillance footage.
