Protecting Your Rights in Car Accidents Resulting in Death
Most people rely on their cars as their primary mode of transportation. Although we try to drive safely, accidents happen. Whether it’s running a red light because you were changing the radio, or losing control of your car as you rounded a corner, accidents happen in a split second, and the results can be fatal.
If you are facing charges of vehicular homicide because another person died in the car accident, it is important to find a lawyer who will protect your rights throughout the process. We have over 20 years of experience. I defend clients throughout Huntsville and northern Alabama in vehicular homicide cases.
Collecting Evidence After the Accident
After an accident, everyone will be trying to collect the evidence they need to build their case. The police will be filling out the details in the accident report. And we need to determine the actual cause of the accident.
When I work with clients, I do whatever I can to build the strongest case in their defense. When appropriate, I work with experts to reconstruct the scene of the accident. By carefully investigating every detail of the situation, I seek to determine the actual cause of the accident.
Even if illegal drugs or alcohol were not involved, there can be a number of factors which may lead the prosecutors to think they were. I work closely with my clients to prove the connection between medication or existing health problems and the cause of the accident.
