Vehicular Assault And Vehicular Manslaughter
Vehicular Assault is a criminal charge filed when a driver negligently or recklessly operates a motor vehicle and causes physical injury to another person.
Vehicular Manslaughter is a criminal charge filed when a driver operates a motor vehicle recklessly or in an intoxicated/drugged/impaired condition and causes the death of another person. Causing a traffic fatality in the commission of another felony (such as fleeing police) can raise the stakes to a Class A felony.
Fighting Back Against Serious Charges
There are many avenues to defend criminal charges of vehicular assault or vehicular manslaughter. The Fighter Lawyer would obtain the police body cams and in car videos from the responding law enforcement officers. Our firm would also obtain the black box out of the vehicles to retrieve the available crash data stored electronically. Our defense team interviews available on scene witnesses, hires expert witnesses and accident reconstruction experts. It is possible to exclude significant portions of the prosecutor’s case from evidence by arguing the evidence is not scientifically reliable or that police unlawfully or erroneously obtain the evidence.
These cases can be successfully defended with a lawyer who wants to fight for you. Our team fights for their clients. Call 816-246-8881 to speak with Tamara Putnam, The Fighter Lawyer.
