Learn How Our DUI Defense Firm Can Help You

Though it is one of the most popular and widespread forms of transportation, driving a car can be one of the most dangerous activities you can do. Many citizens across America have their driver's license. Unfortunately, not everyone acts responsible and cautious when they get behind the wheel of their car. It is quite easy to be distracted while on the road.

Passengers, the radio and even a cellular device can prove to be enough of a distraction to cause some sort of accident on the road. Such an accident could be driving off the road, colliding with another vehicle or pushing another vehicle off of the road. This incident is often nothing more than a simple accident. However, sometimes an accident of this sort can have far more serious consequences. If an automobile accident leads to a death, the ramifications are far more severe.

Florida's Negligent Homicide Law & Penalties

In the United States, if a vehicle accident leads to the death of the victim, it is considered to be vehicular manslaughter. The individual who caused the accident can be charged with this crime. Such a crime is attributed to the negligent operation of a vehicle. This act is classified under the category of negligent homicide.

Normally the penalties for negligent homicide are more lenient than that typical of first and second degree murder charges. If the charge is upheld under the category of second degree, the accused may receive up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. In such a homicide case, intent to kill does not need to be proved like in most murder cases. The charge will rest on reckless and negligent driving.
