Serious Vehicular Crimes Defense

Vehicular Homicide And Vehicular Assault Cases In Columbus And Central Ohio
One of the practice areas of the Dominy Law Firm is representing clients for serious vehicular crimes in Columbus, Ohio and the central  Ohio area.  By ‘serious vehicular crimes’, we mean vehicular crimes resulting in serious physical harm or death to another person.  Although other traffic offenses may also be considered serious, those are discussed in the DUI / OVI Defense and Traffic Ticket Defense sections of this website.

Being charged with a crime which involves serious physical harm or death is a difficult situation.  In addition to the significant penalties which may be imposed, the added pressure from victims’ families, special interest groups, and the media can create 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 By Vehicle in Columbus and central Ohio, you need experienced attorneys who understand the law, have a grasp of the various types of evidence, and work well with people.

The Dominy Law Firm has Columbus vehicular homicide and vehicular assault attorneys with experience representing clients charged with D.U.I./O.V.I. and serious vehicular crimes.  We have the expertise necessary to effectively defend clients charged with Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter.  To focus on this area of criminal defense, founding attorney Shawn Dominy completed specialized training specific to these types of cases, including courses in breath testing, blood/urine testing, and field sobriety testing, as well as programs presented by the National College for D.U.I. defense (NCDD).  Our firm also has experience working with experts such as accident reconstruction experts and pharmacological experts.

Strategies For Vehicular Homicide And Vehicular Assault Defense In Ohio
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 D.U.I. 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 the Dominy Law Firm’s 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 his client is a “nice guy”.  Case preparation is crucial for cases of Vehicular Homicide, Vehicular Assault, and Involuntary Manslaughter.  The Dominy Law Firm prepares every case thoroughly.
