Utah Vehicular Homicide Attorney
In the eyes of the law, killing someone is a crime. If it was an accidental death, it is called involuntary manslaughter. Even though it was not an intentional murder, the penalties are still extremely serious. If you are convicted, you could spend years in jail.
We provide strong criminal defense for people facing involuntary manslaughter charges in Salt Lake City and throughout Utah. We are attorneys Greg Smith and Associates. We have the experience you need on your side to help you overcome these serious charges.
What Is Involuntary Manslaughter?
An involuntary manslaughter charge hinges on allegations that someone died because you were behaving carelessly. Frequently, these charges involve vehicular homicide. Scenarios include:
- Allegations that drunk driving caused you to hit a child with your car
- Accusations of talking on a cellphone while driving, distracting you enough to run a red light, hit another car and cause an accidental death
- Allegations that, due to an argument with someone else in the car, you were not paying attention and hit a pedestrian
Of course, not all cases involve vehicular homicide. Involuntary manslaughter charges can be related to accidental deaths in bar fights, altercations between neighbors, providing guests at a party with excessive alcohol or drugs and more. No matter what the scenario, our lawyers can help.
