Vehicular Homicide

DUI Defense Lawyer in Pittsburgh

Vehicular Homicide

Vehicular homicide is the most serious charge a motorist can face and must always be handled by an experienced criminal defense firm. Defense attorney, Blaine Jones, is a veteran lawyer who has represented thousands of clients facing misdemeanor and felony charges. Since his time as a public defender, he has dedicated his career to fighting for the rights of clients facing serious charges. Many of those facing serious alcohol-related charges seek his representation. Vehicular homicide or vehicular manslaughter charges in Pittsburgh allege that you were operating a motor vehicle negligently, and that an accident resulted in death. The death was unintentional but resulted from an unlawful act, such as driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Vehicular Manslaughter Defense in Pittsburgh

In addition to DUI, you may also be charged with vehicular manslaughter for other circumstance behind the wheel:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless Driving
  • Careless Driving
  • Aggravated Assault by Vehicle/DUI

If a prosecutor shows you were under the influence of alcohol or drugs at the time of the accident, you can face a mandatory three-year prison sentence. And it's important to understand the death does not have to occur to someone in another vehicle – the death of someone in your own vehicle can also result in criminal charges. As a veteran vehicular homicide defense lawyer in Pittsburgh, Blaine Jones uses a multipronged approach in building a defense. If the prosecutor fails to prove either that you were driving drunk or that you were responsible for the accident, a reduction or dismissal of the charges is possible. These can be tough cases. And an aggressive defense is required. We will fight to keep the consequences of a tragic accident from impacting the rest of your life.
