Accused of vehicular manslaughter? These are serious criminal charges that require legal attention as soon as possible.

Vehicular manslaughter, also referred to as vehicular homicide, is a serious criminal offense. It involves causing the death of another person either through negligence, recklessness or violating a traffic law. The death would have been unintentional but occurred because the accused was driving in a negligent or careless manner. In California, vehicular manslaughter may be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor.
This charge may occur in conjunction with DUI (driving under the influence). If this occurs, the defendant is likely to face increased penalties. In fact, gross vehicular manslaughter while under the influence of alcohol/drugs can result in 10 years imprisonment in state prison, as well as other serious penalties.
