The Denver, Colorado criminal defense attorneys at M. Trent Trani & Associates, P.C. specialize in defending clients charged with vehicular homicide and assault.
Criminal defense of this type of charge requires that a complete and thorough investigation be completed including, interviews of any and all witnesses to the accident, a thorough review of law enforcement's investigation, observations, and conclusions, and, maybe most importantly, an expert reconstruction of the accident itself. A criminal defense attorney may retain an accident reconstruction expert to reconstruct the accident as it actually occurred. An accident reconstruction involves complex calculations of physics and engineering. In some instances, an accident reconstruction expert may actually be able to make the reconstructed accident visible to a jury using animated video. In such instances, this provides the criminal lawyer with the evidence needed to successfully defend their client.
