Minnesota Vehicular Homicide Lawyer & Attorney
Minneapolis Vehicular Manslaughter – Homicide – Causation Lawyer
Minnesota criminal defense lawyer Douglas Kans defends clients against vehicular manslaughter charges in Minneapolis, St Paul, and throughout Minnesota. Vehicular manslaughter may be charged against a driver when they cause an accident that cases death of another person. Often, the accident involves the driver violating a traffic law or exercising gross negligence. If alcohol if involved, a prosecutor may charge the party under the influence with vehicular manslaughter even if they are not found at fault and if the accident was unavoidable. Police officers are biased against drunk drivers and will often jump to the conclusion that the drinking party was at fault.
Vehicular homicide is not always as a result of a drinking party where alcohol is involved. Other substances are often tied in with vehicular homicide. Reckless driving and reckless endangerment including road rage and drag racing are other types of behavior that could land you in serious legal trouble. Even if you are not at fault, you may be charged with involuntary manslaughter.
As a former criminal prosecutor, Douglas Kans looks at a variety of angles and questions investigators:
What was the cause of the accident?
Was your driving with a blood alcohol content level below the legal level?
Has the state proven negligence? If so, was it gross negligence or ordinary negligence?
Did your negligence cause the death of another person?
Was the death voluntary manslaughter or involuntary manslaughter?
What do key witnesses have to say? Accident reconstructionists? Other experts?
