They have 30 days from the time of the accident to charge the driver with manslaughter. Basically, if I'm driving and I am found to be at fault in an accident that sends you to the hospital, and you die within 30 days, I can be charged with manslaughter in your death. This is irregardless of whether you're a pedestrian, biker, cager...whatever.

I would think they would charge everyone the same, but if there are certain factors such as visibility issues, speed of the person that died, driving history of the driver, I would think they would take those into account as well.
