Vehicular homicide charges are serious, but do not let the courts intimidate you. Vehicular homicide charges are hardly “open and shut” cases, and you are innocent until proven guilty. Weather, road conditions, causation, other drivers and the vehicle involved are all important factors in determining guilt or innocence.

It’s important to hire a homicide defense attorney to represent your interests. Your freedom and rights can be impacted with a vehicular homicide conviction. Having a felony on your record could affect your education and restitution to the victim could have a negative impact on your financial future.
