Death by careless / dangerous driving

You should not face a prosecution for death by dangerous driving unrepresented. The case will proceed to the Crown Court. It is likely that you will face the prospect of a lengthy prison sentence. There is a mandatory disqualification for a minimum period of 12 months upon conviction and you will be ordered to sit an extended re-test before you can apply for your licence to be re-instated. If you do not pass the extended test you will remain disqualified even after the initial period has expired, until such time that you do pass the extended test.

If you face an offence of causing death by careless driving you still need representation. Whilst your wrong doing maybe limited, emotions run very high in these cases and the victim’s friends and family usually attend court. There is often significant press involvement.

Your case needs careful preparation and handling with sensitivity. Morton’s Solicitors can advise you and provide expert representation at Court. Call us now for immediate advice.
