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. 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 and lost income. The second type, known as punitive damages, will cover their devastation, emotional trauma and 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.

Recent Reviews & Testimonials

  • After Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.

    “When I first met with Cohn & Swartzon, they explained to me that I had a difficult case; but because of my severe injuries, they were willing to help. Initially, the insurance did not offer much; but after Cohn & Swartzon fought hard for me in court, I received over a 6 figure settlement and also had my surgery paid for.”

  • 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.”

  • I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need.

    “I am very happy with the level of service Cohn & Swartzon provided me with during my time of need. I truly did not expect my insurance to cover my legal fees, but I am sure that Attorney Cohn and Attorney Swartzon wrote a great letter to them. I hope that I don't need an attorney ever again; but if I did, I would go back to Cohn & Swartzon. And I would definitely refer my family and friends.”

  • They were completely honest, and offered great advice.

    “I highly recommend Cohn & Swartzon. When I decided to retain the Firm, I initially spoke with Attorney Jason D. Cohn. He was very knowledgeable and helpful in explaining what sort of personal injury case to expect. With the assistance of Attorney Saar Swartzon, Cohn & Swartzon were able to get me a $28,000 settlement. I was very pleased with the Firm's persistence and hard work. The attorneys always kept me informed about how my case was going, they were completely honest, and offered great advice. They listened to my concerns and needs, and always made me feel like I was a high priority client. Everyone at the Firm is very friendly and caring, both as one's legal representation, and simply as individuals. Thanks again!”
