Charged with Vehicular Homicide?
Driving under the influence can be a hazard to more than just the driver.
When a person is killed as a result of a DUI offense, the person driving
under the influence may be charged with vehicular homicide. Retain a

these serious charges. With a wealth of experience in litigation gained
from more than 40 years of combined experience, our firm has an understanding

Penalties for DUI Manslaughter
DUI manslaughter is a second-degree felony. For every death resulting from
the accident, conviction will lead to a mandatory three years in prison
and up to $25,000 in fines. With so much at stake, you cannot afford to
face an allegation of vehicular homicide while DUI without capable legal
aid. Our experienced attorneys at Parkinson, Tarpey & Lloyd can apply
a variety of methods to help you fight your charges.
We may do any of the following in your defense:
- Challenge the validity of a chemical test
- Provide evidence that you did not cause the accident
- Negotiate with the prosecution for lesser penalties
Such cases rest on the claim that the intoxicated driver was at fault;
however, things are not always as they seem. Our Philadelphia criminal
defense lawyers can focus their effort on demonstrating that an accident
was not your fault, helping you avoid the felony charges associated with
a collision. Whether another driver failed to follow traffic laws or chemical
tests provided an inaccurate assessment of your blood alcohol levels,
we will carefully review the facts to find a hole in the prosecution's
case against you. Our Philadelphia DUI attorneys can help you defend your
name and protect your freedom.
