One of the primary considerations in vehicular homicide cases is gross negligence. Drunk driving, excessive speed, reckless driving can all be used as a basis for a finding of gross negligence. In other cases, there can be a serious auto accident that resulted in the tragic death of a person where no gross negligence was involved.
With every case we take, we look closely at every aspect of the accident. We hire accident reconstruction experts to understand exactly how the accident happened. We will determine if the other driver was at fault in any way or if an equipment malfunction on any of the vehicles contributed to the accident. We will create the strongest possible defense on your behalf and do everything we can to protect your freedom.
