      Driving under the influence carries incredibly serious penalties which are only magnified to a higher level when the accident involves a fatality. DUI fatalities tend to receive a lot of attention from the media, and though each defendant is innocent until proven guilty, the court of public opinion is usually on the victim’s side.

      Whenever the loss of life is involved in a criminal setting, the emotions and stakes are extremely high. Acquiring the services of an experienced defense attorney can help to insure that your rights are protected under the law and that you mount a competent, compelling defense against your DUI homicide charges.

      Maryland Law – Crimes Against the Person

      In Maryland, causing injury to another while driving under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs is considered a crime against the person, under § 3-211 of the state’s Criminal Law Code and carries harsh penalties. The law states that “a person may not cause a life-threatening injury to another as a result of the person’s negligently driving, operating, or controlling a motor vehicle or vessel while the person is under the influence of alcohol or under the influence of alcohol per se.

      Additionally, it is illegal for any person to cause a life-threatening injury as the result of their driving under the influence of a drug, or any combination of drugs.

      stars

      The attorney’s and paralegals are incredible. They are truly committed to understanding your case and serving you. However, I’ve personally worked with Mr. Berman and Mrs. Bowman through my entire process! I am so grateful for their passion, dedication, and professionalism. I haven’t worked with many attorney’s in the past, but I’m glad you all were recommended to me. You all are truly the best. Thank you so much!
