Vehicular Manslaughter in Los Angeles
Negligent Driving That Results in Loss of Life
Vehicular manslaughter is a form of involuntary manslaughter which occurs when a driver who is driving negligently and / or recklessly, or is driving under the influence (DUI), or disobeys a traffic law and causes an accident which results in the death of another person. While this is a crime of negligence and does not require the intent to cause injury or death to another, a
vehicular manslaughter charge may still result in a prison sentence of up to 10 years in certain circumstances. The level of the manslaughter charge is based on whether the facts indicate the defendant was acting with gross negligence in operating the vehicle or simple negligence.
