Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney in Los Angeles
Defend Yourself Against Reckless Driving Charges
If you have been charged with vehicular manslaughter – the involuntary
killing of another due to reckless or negligent driving – you could
be facing serious penalties if you are convicted. In certain circumstances,
a vehicular manslaughter crime can be considered a felony, carrying with
it up to 10 years behind bars. Even if it was clear that your intent was
never to hurt anyone, the charges will not be lessened if you aren’t
prepared to protect yourself in a court of law.
A professional criminal defense attorney from the Law Offices of Robert
M. Bernstein can provide you with a proper defense that analyzes all available
evidence. You will need to prove that the accident that resulted in another’s
death was not due to your negligence or recklessness, and that no illegal
activity, such as drinking and driving, was involved.

Accidents happen all the time and may result in death, but not all are
considered criminal vehicular manslaughter cases. In order for you and
your attorney to dismiss vehicular manslaughter charges, you will have
to prove that several factors did not lead to the collision, including:
Negligence: Talking on the cell phone or eating while driving can be seen as a dangerous
form of negligent driving.
Recklessness: Operating your vehicle in a way that is meant to impress or be flashy,
ignoring known driving laws, may be seen as criminal recklessness.
DUI: You will have to prove that your BAC level was not at an illegal level.
Otherwise, you could be facing even harsher punishments if convicted.
