What Should You Do If Charged With Vehicular Homicide?
In Georgia, vehicular homicide/manslaughter is a charge against an individual who is accused of unintentionally and unlawfully causing a death while operating a motor vehicle. However, whether one is accused of negligence, reckless driving or drunk driving, successful defense is possible. Our Atlanta vehicular manslaughter defense attorneys are committed to winning. We prepare each case for trial, whether it is necessary for success or not.
DO NOT speak with law enforcement officers or detectives until you have retained a lawyer, and DO NOT admit to any wrongdoing. Breath test results can be challenged, and there is no way that law enforcement officials or prosecutors can prove you were at fault for the accident without a full review of all the facts. The quicker you contact our firm, the quicker we can get to work on your best possible defense.
