Dangerous Driving Solicitors – Death By Dangerous Driving
Bexleyheath, Blackheath and Orpington
These offences carry very serious penalties and there is a high risk of imprisonment or disqualification.
Usually, such cases are dealt with in the Crown Court however in certain circumstances they may be heard before a Magistrates Court. In the Magistrate Court, the maximum penalty is 6 months’ imprisonment, a fine of up to £5,000 and a disqualification. If the case is dealt with in a Crown Court the maximum penalty is 2 years’ imprisonment, a potentially unlimited fine and disqualification. We can help ensure, where appropriate that your case is dealt with in the Magistrates Court where the maximum penalties are lower and proceedings more informal.
Our Dangerous Driving Solicitors carefully research your case, obtain medical or technical evidence if required to support your case and we can provide you with specialist representation in either a Magistrates Court or Crown Court to ensure the best possible result.
Where there is no doubt that an offence has been committed then we may be able to help you negotiate for the charges to be changed to a less serious offence, such as careless driving and thereby reduce the penalty that you receive.
