Vehicular Homicide Charges
When a drunk driver causes an accident that results in death or serious injury to another person, the charges will be elevated and the penalties will be even more severe. When a person dies as the result of an accident caused by a drunk driver, the intoxicated driver will be charged with vehicular homicide. If you are facing vehicular homicide charges in Jefferson County, DUI defense attorney Chris Cessna can help you.
The mistake so many people make who are facing these most serious charges are that they don't have any idea what questions to ask, or what special qualities to look for in an attorney who will represent them.
In short, if someone suspected of vehicular homicide doesn't consider the extent of the attorney's formal scientific background and training in blood testing, breath testing and standardized field sobriety testing, they are probably making a crucial mistake and decreasing their chances of success. Many people simply think that hiring the family lawyer who handled their will or estate is just as qualified as any attorney. This is almost always a critical mistake.
