Nashville Vehicular Homicide Lawyer
Do you need a lawyer to defend you against vehicular homicide charges?
Any fatal motor vehicle accident can expose the surviving driver to the risk of criminal prosecution—especially if alcohol is a factor in the collision.
If you are facing charges of vehicular homicide or involuntary manslaughter resulting from a car accident in Middle Tennessee, you need to speak with a respected defense lawyer with experience in this area of the law.
Our expert attorneys will help you prepare a strong defense
At the Nashville law firm of Raybin & Weissman, we understand the stress and uncertainty of facing serious criminal charges as a result of a motor vehicle accident. Our expert criminal defense lawyers all average more than 30 years of criminal trial experience, and we have handled a variety of vehicular homicide cases. We know how to exploit weaknesses in the prosecution’s case and maximize the positive impact of facts favoring your position.
To defend you against homicide charges related to a motor vehicle accident, we first work to identify precisely the punishment you are facing. We then launch a comprehensive investigation into the circumstances of your case, which may include:
- Accident reconstruction
- Crash dynamics analysis
- Toxicology analysis
- Biochemistry analysis
In some instances, our independent investigation can result in the dismissal of the most serious charges. In other cases, the evidence we develop will form the basis of a strong defense at trial.
We tailor our legal strategy to the specifics of your charges
Vehicular homicide cases can be extremely technical. There are fine distinctions between charges such as criminally negligent homicide and vehicular homicide by intoxication, which can significantly impact the penalties you face. There is even a more serious charge called aggravated vehicular homicide, which the prosecution may use if you have certain prior convictions or were driving on a suspended or revoked license.
No matter what the circumstances of your case—even if your accident involves a DUI or other serious charge—we provide the exceptional representation and personal attention you need. Our expert criminal defense team will conduct an in-depth review of your case and help determine your best options. We will work tirelessly to get you results and help you move on with your life.
