NYC Vehicular Manslaughter Charges

New York City Assault Defense Attorney

In New York, a driver who injures or kills someone while under the influence of alcohol or drugs can be charged with vehicular assault or manslaughter. This is true even when the driver did not intend to kill or hurt someone. Causing an injury or death obviously exaggerates the already serious consequences of driving while intoxicated (DWI), requiring experienced defense of both charges.

Mr. Bederow is a nationally recognized New York City criminal defense lawyer who provides aggressive, personalized defense to individuals charged with crimes resulting from motor vehicle accidents. We understand New York's vehicular assault and manslaughter laws and the defenses available to you when you face these serious charges.

When you hire our firm, you can benefit from the following:

  • Representation from a former prosecutor
  • Confidential case evaluation
  • Personalized attention
  • Experience and a track record of success in numerous cases

Effective Defense for Assault or Manslaughter Charges

At the Law Office of Mark A. Bederow, P.C., our knowledge of the other side of the case allows us to prepare our clients for the steps of the criminal process, how the state will likely handle a vehicular assault or manslaughter case, and how to craft the most effective defense possible. Serious assault charges such as these put your freedom at risk. We understand the importance of providing our clients with a favorable chance at a dismissal or reduction of charges. Our services are available to clients charged in New York state or federal court, and we have extensive experience in venues throughout the greater New York City metropolitan area.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Vehicular assault and manslaughter charges are among the most serious driving charges you can face. However, additional charges may result and the consequences may be intensified if you left the scene of the motor vehicle accident. In other words, if you were drunk, got into an accident, and did not stop or wait for law enforcement, you can face three separate charges: DWI, leaving the scene of an accident, and vehicular assault or manslaughter.

If you have been charged with a crime involving a motor vehicle, contact our firm today at (212) 256-9491.
