Vehicular Homicide & Vehicular Assault
Being charged with a crime which involves causing serious physical harm to another person or causing the death of another person is a difficult situation. In addition to the serious penalties that may be imposed, added pressure from victims’ families, special interest groups, and the media creates an emotionally charged situation. These cases are also challenging for attorneys because the law in this area is complex, there is potential civil liability, and the evidence frequently includes expert testimony in areas such as medicine, pharmacology, accident reconstruction, chemical testing, and field sobriety testing. For charges of Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter in Columbus and central Ohio, you need an experienced attorney who understands the law, has a grasp of the various types of evidence, and works well with people.Attorney For Vehicular Homicide Defense And Vehicular Assault Defense

Founding attorney Shawn Dominy co-authored Defending D.U.I. Vehicular Homicide Cases by Aspatore Publishing. That book goes “inside the minds” of a few leading DUI lawyers from across the country to gain insight on their approaches to these cases. In the book, Shawn Dominy wrote a chapter titled “Settlement Strategies For D.U.I. Vehicular Homicide Cases”. That chapter outlines our three-part strategy for negotiating, as well as our seven-step system for evaluating settlement offers. The title of the chapter, however, may be misleading. “Settlement strategies” does not refer to the quickest ways to make a deal. Effective negotiations and favorable settlements in these cases occur primarily due to investigation and preparation.
A good defense begins with a comprehensive investigation, continues with discovery and litigating legal issues, and culminates in thorough trial preparation. Negotiations with a defense attorney who is well-prepared are very different than negotiations with a defense attorney who begs for a good deal because the client is a 'nice guy'. Case preparation is crucial for cases of Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter and is also essential for OVI / DUI cases. The Dominy Law Firm prepares every case thoroughly.
