Have you been charged with vehicular manslaughter? Alejo Lugo will fight for you.
If you were involved in a car accident where someone was killed, you could potentially face a charge of vehicular manslaughter. This can be a traumatic and difficult time, so you need an experienced and expert attorney to stand by you and defend you from these charges.
At The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates, our fifteen years of experience handling complex criminal cases give us the expertise you need when faced with these serious charges. We understand both the law on vehicular manslaughter and the strategies that will be crucial to helping you avoid conviction.
Possible Defense Strategies for Vehicular Manslaughter
In order to secure a conviction for vehicular manslaughter, the state must show that you caused the car accident and that your actions were negligent. This will involve careful analysis of complex evidence gathered from the crash scene.
The fact that The Law Offices of Alejo Lugo & Associates is also a respected car accident injury firm will be very beneficial to your case. We understand car accident evidence much better than your average criminal defense lawyer. We know exactly where to look for evidence that could show that you did not cause the car accident, or, if you did cause the accident, that your actions were not criminal because you were not negligent and/or your actions did not cause the victim’s death.
For example, we can bring in our own accident reconstruction experts to contest the police’s evidence and show that you did not cause the car accident. We can also try to poke holes in any eyewitness testimony. Eyewitness testimony is often unreliable as people struggle to accurately recall sudden and traumatic events like car accidents. We will use any credibility issues or inconsistencies in testimony to bolster your defense.
You can rely on us to thoroughly examine the evidence and find any weaknesses that can be used to show that you are innocent or to negotiate with the prosecutor for a favorable deal.
