Causing serious injury by dangerous driving

Causing serious injury by dangerous driving is a very serious offence and can be upsetting for everyone involved. If you are under investigation or have already been charged, our wealth of experience and personal approach means that you will be in the best position to build your defence.

An offence of causing serious injury by dangerous driving is an ‘either way offence’ meaning it can be dealt with in either the Magistrates or Crown Court. Where the case will be heard will depend on the specific circumstances. If convicted at the Crown Court is a maximum of 5 years imprisonment and the maximum sentence in the Magistrates Court is 6 months imprisonment. In addition to the custodial element of the penalty, the Court will also order a driving disqualification for a minimum of 2 years as well as an extended re-test.

Our expert team are on hand to arrange an initial free consultation and will guide you from the very beginning of your case. We can arrange representation for Police interviews under caution, obtaining pre-interview disclosure from officers prior to interview, protecting your rights while in custody and providing specialist advice to the best approach in the interview. If you have been charged with an allegation of causing serious injury by dangerous driving we will ensure you have the best possible representation when appearing before the Courts. We will thoroughly scrutinise any evidence against you, provide clear honest advice, guiding you through the process from start to finish.
