Dallas Vehicular Manslaughter Defense Attorneys

There are few actions regarded as severely by our society and the criminal justice system as the taking of a human life. While news media and dramatic representations pay a great deal of attention to murder, which is perceived to involve intent and malice, vehicular manslaughter is less frequently brought to mind. Vehicular manslaughter charges may be sought against an individual who accidentally kills another person by the negligent or reckless operation of a motor vehicle.

If you or your loved one has been arrested and charged in connection with the vehicle-related accidental death of another person, it is critically important to retain the services of a skilled and experienced criminal defense attorney. Contact the Dallas vehicular manslaughter defense attorneys at Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter by calling 214-845-7007 today.

Potential Consequences of Conviction

Vehicular manslaughter is defined as the unintentional killing of an individual through reckless driving. The act was not due to aggression or any kind of intent. Though the severity of penalties associated with a conviction may be less than that for murder, the following may all be possible potential consequences of conviction:

  • Jail time
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Loss of license

One way to successfully fight this charge is to prove that you were not at fault for the accident. If this is the case, one of our Dallas criminal defense attorneys can help investigate the accident and fight to overturn your charges. Otherwise, we will work tirelessly to provide you with the vigorous defense to which you are entitled.
