Most of us understand that driving under the influence (DUI), whether it involves drugs or alcohol, is a serious criminal offense. Even for those who face charges for the first time and have never committed any other crimes or have a clean record face the minimum penalties. Drinking and driving has serious consequences and can lead to an accident, serious injury, and sadly, even the wrongful death of another.
If you have been charged with vehicular manslaughter, then you will need legal representation as soon as possible. We urge you to contact our RI DUI defense attorney, Thomas C. Thomasian.
Vehicular manslaughter is the crime of causing a fatal accident while operating a motor vehicle. When someone is killed in a car crash, law enforcement will investigate to determine whether someone was intoxicated or otherwise under the influence of either drugs or alcohol and caused the crash. This will have to be determined during the trial, where prosecutors will take the evidence and try to prove that the defendant is guilty.
Furthermore, you may have to pay restitution to the victim’s family if the case is brought to civil court. The family may exercise their right to receive financial compensation and take action against you. For these reasons, you should seek defense and retain a Rhode Island DUI lawyer.
