Vehicular Homicide

If your driving has caused a fatal car accident, then you may be accused of criminal vehicular homicide. Essentially, this homicide conviction suggests that your reckless behavior on the road has caused the death of another human being.

You may be facing a vehicular homicide conviction if you have caused the death of another as a result of operating a motor vehicle in the following instances:

  • If you were driving recklessly or in a grossly negligent manner, including speeding, driving while texting and driving while distracted
  • If you were driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DWI)
  • If you were involved in a hit and run or if you leave the scene of the accident
  • If you knew that the car you were driving was defectively maintained and drove it anyway
