Vehicular Assault And Homicide Charges

Vehicular assault and homicide cases are based upon allegations of intoxication, criminal recklessness and/or criminal negligence (disregard for the safety of others). These cases are complex, often involving experts in accident reconstruction and toxicology. As a result, effort and experience are critical in the successful defense of these cases.

If you have been charged with a serious violent crime such as vehicular homicide following an incident of reckless driving or drunk driving in Washington, make sure you go to court equipped with knowledge and legal support. At the firm of Steven W. Thayer, P.S., we’ll apply over 40 years of successful criminal law experience to your case.

Attorney Steve Thayer has not only defended hundreds of clients charged with drunk driving (DUI), vehicular assault and vehicular homicide, but he’s obtained acquittals and dismissals for many clients over the years as well.

Vehicular Assault And Vehicular Homicide

When an injury or death occurs as the result of drunk or reckless driving such as excessive speeding, prosecutors may have grounds upon which to pursue vehicular assault or vehicular homicide charges. The degree of the charge depends on the severity of the injuries and/or recklessness with which the crime was committed. The punishments, which range from hefty fines and jail time to license revocation and lengthy prison terms, also depend on the degree and severity of the crime.
