Vehicular Manslaughter Defense Strategies
For a person to be convicted of vehicular manslaughter in Missouri, the state must show two things:
- That you contributed to the accident
- That your driving behavior was criminally negligent
If it can be demonstrated that your driving was reckless or you were impaired by alcohol or drugs, that is sufficient proof of criminal negligence.
In your case, we will undertake a comprehensive investigation of the accident itself and the nature of your driving behavior. Working with a professional accident reconstruction expert, we will determine how the accident happened and who was responsible. We will also examine your driving behavior, challenging the prosecutor’s assertions at every opportunity. This could involve investigations by one or more experts in blood alcohol testing or other disciplines. The attorneys at Richard H. Sindel, Inc., will work diligently to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
