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.

  • He was always available and always returned my phone calls.

    “It is my pleasure to recommend the law firm of Cohn & Swartzon. I was recommended to Jason through an attorney friend of mine who suggested that I see him because of the sensitivity of my case. I met with him and instantly saw the compassion and professionalism that was instilled in him. He took on my case which was an emotional and difficult one. He handled us with care, step by step, and I watched him fight hard in court and win. He was always available and always returned my phone calls. He was always straightforward and kept us in the loop. He was very informative. I will never forget what he did for our family. Two years later, I had another emergency occur in our family and he returned my call that evening and again took care of everything. I have recommended Cohn & Swartzon to family and friends and will continue to do so. They were there for my family when I needed them and the professionalism and expertise says it all.”

  • 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.”
