The best defense is a timely one
Under Georgia law, vehicular homicide is taken very seriously. Depending on the details of your case, it could be seen as either a misdemeanor or a felony and you don't want to leave that choice up to the prosecutors. You will need help from a vehicular homicide attorney to make sure you have adequate protection and you should contact one as soon as possible.
Our legal team has years of experience working with vehicular homicide cases and lawyers are extremely effective when defending our clients. We give our clients hope. Even if you have been charged with vehicular homicide, it doesn't mean you are guilty. It goes without saying that someone losing their life is a terrible thing, but it doesn't necessarily mean you were responsible for it. In fact, if you were not impaired and you were not found responsible for the accident then you did not commit vehicular homicide. Call us today to discuss the details of your case for a better understanding of where you stand.
How can you defend against vehicular homicide?
The state has to prove causation. If the state has proven, for example, an underlying DUI charge, then they have also to show that the underlying traffic offence was directly responsible for the death. The state prosecutor also has to prove that the deceased did not do something that could have contributed to his or her own death.
