Palm Springs Vehicular Manslaughter Law Firm

Vehicular manslaughter occurs when a person kills another person during an auto accident by acting negligently and/or recklessly. For example, in cases involving truck accidents, a truck driver may be driving while fatigued and crash into another driver.

If the driver is killed, it would be considered vehicular manslaughter. Even though vehicular manslaughter happens unintentionally, people can still be held responsible because they behaved negligently.

The Criminal Legal Process for Vehicular Manslaughter

When people commit vehicular manslaughter, they will have to go through the criminal legal process.

If they are convicted, they may have to:

  • Serve jail time
  • Pay fines
  • Or even lose their driving privileges

The negative consequences do not end there, either, as families of the people who died from vehicular manslaughter may choose to take legal action by filing a wrongful death claim. If families are successful with their wrongful death claims, they may be awarded compensation for their devastating losses.

Wrongful Death & Truck Accident Lawyers

Generally speaking, people that file wrongful death claims may recover two types of monetary damages.

The first type will cover things like their lost loved one's:

  • Medical bills
  • Property damage
  • Lost income

The second type, known as punitive damages, will cover:

  • Their devastation
  • Emotional trauma
  • Pain and suffering

Anytime people think that they want to take legal action against negligent parties by filing wrongful death claims, they should retain the services of a skilled personal injury lawyer.

    “I was in a car accident that resulted in injuries, time off of work, and repeated visits to medical providers. I sought the assistance of Cohn & Swartzon to assist me in recovering my lost wages and help with paying my medical bills. The firm was so friendly and really educated me about how auto insurance and medical insurance works when you're involved in an accident. They made me feel comfortable with the process and more importantly I never had to deal with negotiating with the insurance companies for any of my medical bills. I was able to recover my lost wages, my medical expenses were paid in full, and I received a very good recovery for my pain and suffering. I have definitely recommended this law firm to family and friends many times and they all have been pleased with their service, knowledge and expertise.”

  • In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service.

    “Let me begin by saying that I would recommend Cohn & Swartzon to anyone in need of legal advice. Both Jason and Saar are very personable and they provided a high level of service to me as their client. In addition to Jason and Saar, the entire staff always provided the utmost in service. One of the things that I liked was the fact that they stayed true to their word. They told me that they personally would take calls, if necessary. It was not very often that I needed to speak directly to them; but when I did, they were accessible. I appreciate the great lengths that they went to in working with an uncooperative doctor, who took a very long time getting a key report to them. They worked with the insurance companies and the adjusters, which took all of the unnecessary stress off of me. The Firm went to bat for me and we were successful in settling my personal injury case without going to trial. Saar was able to negotiate and reduce my medical bills, thus putting more cash into my hands. I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome, and the timing of the settlement couldn't have come at a better time.”


  • The Firm came highly recommended to me and I understand why.

  • We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible.

    “I am very happy to recommend Cohn & Swartzon. My two young daughters and I were hit by a teenage driver whose vehicle flipped over our SUV.

We ended up obtaining much more compensation than we ever thought possible. Thank you so much!”
