Vehicular Manslaughter Lawyer in Nassau County
There are various matters that require an immediate review. In certain cases in which charges of vehicular manslaughter are filed, the basis for the charges is blood, breath or urine testing administered after the accident, either at the scene, at the police station, or in the hospital if emergency medical care had been necessary. Once a test comes back above the legal limit, there can be a rush to judgment. It could be assumed that the accident was caused by that driver, who actually was a victim of the actions of another driver, or had suffered some type of seizure, medical emergency, or had a dangerous road hazard such as items on the street bed that caused the collision. There may have been a failure of a critical vehicle safety system, such as brakes or tires, or another driver entirely may have caused the accident.
