Death by Dangerous Driving Charge Reduced Case Study

19 November 2009

Slater and Gordon Lawyers (formally Russell Jones & Walker) successfully represented a man accused of causing death by dangerous driving. 

The 58 year old man accidentally selected the wrong gear on his automatic car which caused it to lurch forward, strike and kill a toddler. 

Slater and Gordon’s Driving Offence Solicitors successfully made representations to the prosecutor that the charge should be amended to driving without due care and attention. Our client admitted to the lesser offence and he received a fine as well as a driving ban.
