MOTOR VEHICLE CRIMES AND CLAIMS
The prosecution of motor vehicle accidents and the defense of criminal charges arising from drunk driving, vehicular assault, manslaughter prosecutions and call into play a variety of skills and expertise.
In the past 4 years, the firm has achieved Not Guilty verdicts in negligent homicide prosecutions and recently defended a DWI prosecution based on a .19% BAC intoxilyzer result. In that case, a hung jury and a mistrial led to a favorable outcome.
Criminal prosecutions are often based on police accident investigations and alcohol testing using flawed toxicology, crash reconstructions which contain serious errors, and mechanical work which is inaccurate. An ability to successfully refute flawed or inaccurate accident investigations is irreplaceable in defending charges of this nature.
The firm has been involved in motor vehicle criminal defense since its inception.
On the claims side, the same expertise and resources have led to successful prosecution of injury cases based on motor vehicle accidents. Substantial recoveries have resulted from establishing a firm command of the collision dynamics in a given case and developing the ability to prove accident causation in court.
