Understanding Vehicular Homicide Charges

In order to convict you of vehicular homicide, the state must prove that your reckless actions led to the death of another in a motor vehicle accident. Examples of this conduct may include:

  • Drunk driving
  • Reckless driving (excessive speeding or distracted driving)
  • Driving on a suspended driver's license

A few years ago, I handled a case on behalf of someone who was charged with vehicular homicide. My involvement in this case triggered a change in Tennessee state law. When you choose me to handle your case, you will be working with an attorney who is at the forefront of criminal law.

What Constitutes Felony Vehicular Assault?

Felony vehicular assault charges may arise if someone is seriously injured (but not killed) by a driver. These charges are also very serious, and may lead to penalties such as imprisonment, fines, driver's license suspension and more. Contact me to find out how I can be of assistance in your case.
