A dangerous driving conviction can have severe consequences. Successful prosecution can result in penalties of up to 11 points on your licence, retaking your licence, and a prison sentence of up to 2 years.
Our solicitors will offer you friendly and impartial advice on whether you have a case to defend. We’ll work closely with you and your individual circumstances to help keep your licence or prevent a prison sentence.
Our solicitors can offer advice and defend you for the following charges:
Open to interpretation, and the wording of your charges can have a huge effect on the sentence. So it’s important to take advice from one of our solicitors straight away to help limit or defend the charges completely.
The prosecution has to show that your driving fell well below the standard of a competent driver. So with our help we could persuade the prosecution to lower the charges to careless driving
and avoid a prison sentence.
If found guilty of causing death by careless driving you face a minimum 2 year ban, and up to 14 years in prison. So it’s vital that you use the support of a motoring solicitor.
Our aim is to work side-by-side with you to fight for the best possible outcome. In some cases we can avoid any charges whatsoever. In other cases we will aim to build a defence to reduce the conviction to death by careless driving
and reduce its long-term effect on the rest of your life.
