Vehicular Manslaughter In Texas

Help From Our Houston DWI Attorneys

Traffic accidents are among the top causes of injury and death in the United States. When people are killed, the state of Texas takes steps to prosecute the at-fault party, leading to potentially serious penalties and a permanent criminal record.

Vehicular manslaughter is a serious offense and comes with possible prison sentences and large fines if you are convicted. Depending on the nature of your crime, there may be additional penalties such as the loss of your license, the loss of your relationships, and the inability to find future employment because of your criminal record.

Potential Causes For This Serious Crime

When you get behind the wheel you should always make sure that you are in your right mind and that driving conditions are safe. Accidents do happen, however. When there are serious consequences, these accidents can have lasting effects on your future.

Vehicular manslaughter charges can arise from a number of circumstances, including:

  • Negligent driving or reckless disregard for others
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DWI)
  • Driving while under the influence of prescription drugs
  • Driving while extremely tired
  • Not paying attention to potentially hazardous road conditions

We Can Help

It is in your best interest to hire an experienced Houston attorney to defend your case. Even if you were driving while under the influence, we can investigate the circumstances of the accident and may be able to argue that intoxication was not the cause of the crime.

Pre-existing medical issues, emergencies, and dangerous road conditions can also cause accidental death, and when these issues are at fault, we may be able to defend you against severe sentencing and long-lasting repercussions.
