Have You Been Charged With
With Manslaughter?

Types of Manslaughter our solicitors and lawyers can assist with.

Our specialist Manslaughter solicitors and lawyers have decades of experience representing clients in relation to a wide range of Manslaughter charges. We can offer detailed knowledge of these complex offences and the various opportunities to avoid charges, see charges dropped or secure the minimum penalties where conviction is unavoidable.

Manslaughter Classifications

Manslaughter charges are broken down into two distinct charges, each of which require different defences. These are:

Voluntary Manslaughter

For a crime to be classed as voluntary manslaughter, the defendant must successfully prove one of the following defences.

  • Diminished responsibility – if the defendant was suffering from an ‘abnormality of mind’ during the incident, the case will be classed as voluntary manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.
  • Provocation – this means that the killing was the result of a temporary loss of control or a fit of rage. The defendant can also claim they killed through self-defence or were provoked by words or actions. If a ‘reasonable person’ would have acted in the same way, the defence of provocation will be used.
  • Suicide pact – if one party of a joint suicide pact survived and the other(s) didn’t, the surviving person will have taken part in the death of another person but will be charged with voluntary manslaughter.

Cases of voluntary manslaughter will be dealt with in the Crown Court and convicted persons can face a sentence ranging from stiff criminal fines to 10 years’ imprisonment.

Involuntary Manslaughter

Manslaughter is considered involuntary when a person kills but did not have the intention to murder or cause GBH. Involuntary manslaughter typically falls under two categories:

  • The death was caused by gross negligence e.g. a medical professional provided care that was considered below an acceptable standard, resulting in a patient’s death.
  • The death was a result of an unlawful or dangerous act e.g. a driver killed a crossing pedestrian due to unlawful speeding.

Involuntary manslaughter cases vary widely, therefore the sentence for this crime is dependent upon the circumstances of the death. Sentences will be arranged in the Crown Court and can range from heavy fines to life imprisonment.
