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
- In the hospital if emergency care is 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.
