Death by Dangerous Driving
At Cartwright King we understand that motoring mistakes can be made and that serious accidents can occur whilst driving which are not necessarily your fault. If you have been accused of causing death by dangerous driving, you could be faced with a lengthy prison sentence and a motoring ban. This is the most serious motoring offence and one that if proved against you almost always leads to a prison sentence. It is vital that you seek very early advice. We are available to represent you throughout the entire legal process and can assist wherever you are based.
Dangerous driving and the law
When you are driving a vehicle, it is essential to adhere to the Highway Code and the law in general. If there is evidence that you have driven far below the standard expected by a competent and careful driver, you could be charged with dangerous driving. In deciding the matter, the court will look at all the circumstances and factors which aggravate the matter including:
- Driving aggressively
- Ignoring the speed limit
- Undertaking other vehicles
- Failing to stop for police
- Being distracted by radio or communication device
