Miami Vehicular Manslaughter Attorney

Millions of people drive vehicles in Florida. These people often take the privilege of driving for granted. They don’t always realize how dangerous a vehicle can be.

Cars and trucks weigh several thousand pounds or more. They can cause a lot of damage to a person or another vehicle. They can cause catastrophic injuries and in the most severe cases, death.

Even if you did not mean to kill someone in a crash, you could still be charged with a crime: vehicular manslaughter. This type of crime means that a person was killed in a car due to your negligence whether or not it was intentional.

This is a serious crime. If you are facing charges, it’s essential to understand the law and your legal rights to protect yourself and ensure the best possible outcome. Seek legal help from a Miami vehicular manslaughter attorney from Asilia Law Firm today.

What is Vehicular Manslaughter? 

Under Florida Statute § 782.071, vehicular homicide is defined as causing another person’s death while recklessly or negligently operating a vehicle. Vehicular manslaughter is a second-degree felony, with a prison sentence of up to 15 years and a $10,000 fine. If the driver fled the accident scene, they could be charged with a first-degree felony, which would result in a prison sentence of up to 30 years.

A person can face DUI manslaughter charges if they kill someone while under the influence of alcohol and drugs. Under Florida Statute § 316.193(1) and (3)(c)(3), a person can face criminal consequences if they are in control of a vehicle with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher and cause the death of another person. Even if you did not mean to cause another person harm, you can still be charged with DUI manslaughter.
