Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney in Seattle

Vehicular Manslaughter Defense

If you have been charged with vehicular manslaughter (called vehicular homicide in Washington State), contact a Seattle criminal defense attorney at once for legal counsel and strong representation. You are facing extremely severe penalties, including imprisonment for many years. We also understand that it can be especially difficult to cope with the idea that your actions cost someone their life and we are here to help you through the entire process.

Vehicular manslaughter is the crime of causing an accident resulting in fatalities by driving a vehicle in a reckless manner, while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or with disregard to the safety of others. You can also be charged with vehicular manslaughter if a person was injured in the accident, and dies from their injuries within three years.

Vehicular manslaughter is a class A felony punishable by:

  • Imprisonment
  • Heavy fines
  • Driver's license revocation

Sentencing will be extremely harsh in cases involving drunk driving, prior DUI convictions, or related misdemeanor or felony offenses.

Jonathan is a criminal defense instructor, who specializes in DUI investigations and field sobriety testing.
