Ohio Vehicular Assault Attorney
As soon as you have been charged with either vehicular homicide or vehicular assault, I strongly encourage you to exercise your right to remain silent. More often than not, these types of cases hinge on something the accused does or says in the presence of law enforcement officers.
I am Samuel B. Weiner, a Columbus vehicular homicide attorney. I have provided quality criminal defense to residents of Ohio for more than 35 years. Contact my office immediately if you have been charged with a crime.
These charges commonly involve other factors, including:
- Reckless endangerment
- Distracted driving
- Excessive speeding
- Passing a school bus that is loading or unloading passengers
- Drunk driving
- Fleeing or evading law enforcement
There are several differences between a charge of Aggravated Vehicular Homicide and Vehicular Homicide. Aggravated Vehicular Homicide is committed while one is either intoxicated or driving in a reckless manner. In either case, prison time is likely and in some cases it is mandatory. Homicide is typically categorized as the killing of one human being by another. In these cases, the weapon used is a motor vehicle.
A charge of vehicular homicide is serious and carries with it severe penalties. It is important to hire a lawyer experienced in defending clients in a wide range of charges. Contact my office immediately.
In much the same way vehicular homicide is categorized, vehicular assault involves the physical harm to a pedestrian or a passenger in your or another car, resulting from reckless or negligent operation of your motor vehicle.
My goal, in these or any other criminal charges, is to minimize your punishment as much as possible, thereby minimizing the consequences to your personal and professional life. I will diligently investigate and challenge all aspects of your case, in order to reach the most favorable resolution possible.
