Traffic Homicide Lawyers in Vero Beach
If you are being investigated for or charged with a traffic homicide case on the Treasure Coast of Florida it is in your best interest to obtain legal representation from a law office that has experience in this highly technical area of the law. Andrew B. Metcalf of Green & Metcalf provides experienced and aggressive trial representation in this field having been lead counsel in cases of this nature for over twenty years.
Traffic Homicide Cases
DUI/ BUI Manslaughter – Up to 15 years in prison; minimum mandatory of 4 years if convicted.
Leaving Scene of Accident with Death: Up to 30 years in prison with a minimum 4 years if convicted.
Reckless Boating/ Driving with Death: Up to 15 years in prison.
In many instances “Death Points” are assessed when calculating the lowest permissible sentences under Florida law. It is important you have an attorney who is aggressive, experienced and well-versed in the specialized area of the law. Experts must be engaged in these cases to forensically review toxicology, (blood draws), accident reconstruction and vehicle performance (air bag control modules or the “black box.”)
Andrew B. Metcalf
“Traffic Homicide cases are some of the most complex cases in the criminal justice system. You should fully vet the skill level and experience of your prospective attorney prior to hiring him or her. Your attorney should be able to immediately provide you with a list of forensic specialists he or she has engaged in the past. Don’t be afraid to ask your lawyer for a history or list of traffic homicide cases they have handled. The lawyer should be well versed in the potential penalties and the Florida Sentencing Guidelines. Your decision in hiring an attorney in these types of cases is perhaps one of the most important you will ever make. Any prospective attorney should be willing to answer any questions you have about their skill level and experience. Our firm does not charge consultation fees in any criminal matters, so please feel free to call and obtain valuable information that may assist you in deciding what is best for you and your family.”
