Failing to Stop / Report

If you find yourself prosecuted for failing to stop or failing to report an accident, this may have serious ramifications.

These offences can carry a term of imprisonment.

These offences are viewed seriously by the court, and thus carry a high number of penalty points upon conviction, or even a discretionary disqualification.

The minimum number of points is 5 the maximum is 10. You only need to accrue 12 points in a 3 year period to potentially face a “totting-up” disqualification for a minimum period of 6 months.

Cases of this nature can be complex with multiple witnesses and insurance claims resting upon the outcome. Your case needs careful preparation. Morton’s Solicitors can advise you and provide expert representation at Court. Call us now for immediate advice.
