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.
