When you have been involved in an accident in which someone was killed, it is critical to talk to a reputable criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. In Maryland, you could face charges for vehicular manslaughter if you were accused of:
- Reckless driving
- Speeding, or other traffic infractions
- Distracted driving
- Drunk or drugged driving
- Sleeping behind the wheel
Although you did not intend to harm anyone, motor vehicle manslaughter is a felony offense that carries 10 years in prison. In this way, it is no different than manslaughter charges that do not involve car accidents. We urge you to contact us at the Law Offices of Thomas C. Mooney in Upper Marlboro as soon as possible for a free and confidential legal consultation: 301-579-3429.
