Death By Dangerous Driving

Death By Dangerous Driving

If you are facing a charge of Death by Dangerous Driving you will be extremely anxious about the consequences and going through court. With an excellent track record on our dangerous driving cases we can help you now if you call one of our specialist dangerous driving solicitors for free initial advice.

The offence of causing death by dangerous driving is an extremely serious offence which carries a maximum penalty is 14 years imprisonment, an unlimited fine an obligatory disqualification for a minimum of 2 years and a compulsory extended re-test, so the stakes are high. It is an indictable only offence which means it can only be heard at the Crown Court.

You should not leave this to chance and you need to get specialist advice as early as possible.

What amounts to Death by Dangerous Driving?

The prosecution have to prove that your driving was dangerous i.e. fell far below the standard of a competent and careful driver and that as a result of that driving you caused a death.

This type of offence is often extremely complicated often involving many witnesses, expert evidence which could include medical experts as well as road traffic accident investigation experts. Auriga advocates will meticulously review the evidence against you and prepare your defence leaving no stone unturned.

Andrea our managing director and principal solicitor was a fatal road traffic specialist for the CPS for many years and can has extensive knowledge of the CPS/police procedure which many other specialist firms do not have.

What happens at court?

A death by dangerous driving offence is one which can only be heard in the Crown Court.

Your first appearance would be at the Magistrates Court when they would send your case to the Crown Court.

You would attend a plea and directions hearing at the Crown Court where you would enter your plea.

If you plead Not Guilty your case would be adjourned for a trial if you plead guilty you would either be sentenced at that point or on a later date.

The procedure is complicated and there are difficult decisions for you to make. This is why you experienced careless, drink and drug driving specialists to help you through this process and ensure that you are making the decisions which are right for you.

AURIGA ADVOCATES

were fantastic. From the first telephone conversation where I enquired about the services and cost involved everything was totally clear. Both Andrea and Lloyd who I dealt with were professional but warm, reassuring and were always available to answer any concerns or questions I had. Right up until the day I entered court they were there for me. My barrister who represented me in court, Lisa, was again also fantastic.
Right down to value for money (and I did look around) I really cannot fault the service I got from Auriga Advocates.
