Get a San Diego DUI Defense Attorney on Your Side
Vehicular manslaughter is associated with DUI when a person unintentionally
causes the death of another person while driving under the influence.
When a person is under the influence of drugs or alcohol, it is presumed
that they are acting negligent or reckless when behind the wheel. If an
accident does occur, this individual will likely be blamed, regardless
of who was actually at fault.
In most cases, vehicular manslaughter will be charged as a felony, which
can carry up to four years in prison. There can also be enhanced penalties
related to DUI.
Crafting a Strong Defense Against Your Charges
With any DUI vehicular manslaughter charge, only a skilled
San Diego DUI defense attorney can help you avoid the harsh consequences. Because an experienced legal
professional will have a good understanding of DUI court procedure and
what is needed to prove your side of the story, your chances of a favorable
outcome are greatly increased.
A skilled attorney may be able to argue that:
- You were not under the influence at the time of the accident
- You're breath or blood test results were mishandled
- You were not treated fairly in the arrest process or your rights were violated
in some way
