Florida Reckless Homicide Lawyer

It is human nature to want to tell your side of the story. However, if you've been accused of a serious crime, it's imperative that you let an attorney do it for you. There are two common types of negligent homicide:

  • Reckless homicide: Reckless homicide is the killing of another person by a negligent act. Driver negligence is typically the cause of reckless homicide. For example, excessive speeding or drag racing can result in death. While the driver did not intend for anyone to be killed, he or she may still be held responsible.
  • Voluntary manslaughter: Voluntary manslaughter is the killing of another person in which the offender had no prior intent to kill. Physical altercations can result in voluntary manslaughter. Even if someone claims self-defense, when a death occurs as the result of someone physically harming another person, the defendant could be charged with voluntary manslaughter.

I am Michael L. Edwards and I can act as your personal advocate if you or your family member has been accused of negligent homicide. Without someone protecting your rights, you could be helping to prove the case against you. Before you give a statement to the police or any investigative authority, speak to a Jacksonville negligent homicide attorney.
