Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney Miami, FL

Vehicular Manslaughter Charges in Florida

Vehicular manslaughter is legally defined as the criminal act of causing death to another person due to illegal driving behaviors that may be considered gross negligence. Examples of gross negligence in vehicular manslaughter cases would be speeding, reckless driving, or driving under the influence. In the state of Florida, driving under the influence is one of the leading causes of vehicular manslaughter, and is always vigorously prosecuted by both law enforcement and state district attorneys.

Even if the person who was under the influence did not cause the DUI accident, or if the accident was unpreventable, the person will face legal action simply for being under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both at the time of the accident, which has led to the death of another person. Law enforcement tends to be very biased when alcohol and driving under the influence are factors in a vehicular manslaughter case.
