Intoxication Manslaughter

What should I do if I am charged with Intoxication Manslaughter?

Searching for a Houston intoxication manslaughter lawyer? You need to act FAST! As you read this, the prosecutor is working with law enforcement to build their case against you or your loved one.

Intoxication Manslaughter occurs when the driver causes the death of another individual due to the driver committing the offense of Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), and by reason of that intoxication, causes the death of another by accident or mistake.  Like the intoxication assault offense, it also doesn’t matter whether the deceased person is a pedestrian, another driver, passenger in another vehicle, or passenger in your own vehicle. 

This offense is classified as a second-degree felony, which may result in confinement in a Texas Department of Criminal Justice – Institutional Division (prison) for a minimum of 2 years and a maximum of 20 years along with a fine up to $10,000.  Furthermore, in civil lawsuits, the family of the victim may sue the defendant of the criminal case (the accused driver) for civil damages (e.g., wrongful death lawsuit).
