Brilliant Legal Representation

“I was recently represented by Kang & Co Solicitors for a drink driving charge. From the initial telephone call it was clear that Kang & Co were experts in this field. They provided sound advice and diligently guided me through the process leading up to the court case. Through their legal representation I was able to avoid a community order and receive the best possible outcome for my case .”

Ollie, TrustPilot

Flawless Legal Help

“They had very little time to go ahead with getting all valid documents needed for my case, they were extremely efficient and great at calming me and keeping me updated with my case and it’s details with interviews and courtrooms to appear in, overall great experience with kang and co, I came out with a 2 year suspended sentence instead of a 1 year custodial sentence for GBH without intent. I now get to spend the time caring for my nan and helping with my family’s needs.”

Examples of dangerous driving would include racing or aggressive driving, driving while tired, or being involved in a police chase.

Sentence for Dangerous Driving Causing Serious Injury

This offence is an ‘either way offence’ which means that the case could be tried in the Magistrates’ or Crown Court, depending on certain factors in the case.

The maximum sentence for causing serious injury by dangerous driving is five years’ imprisonment and/or a fine. There will also be a mandatory two year minimum period of disqualification and an extended retest.

Potential Defences

 It is important to secure expert legal representation for this offence, given that it can result in a prison sentence of up to 5 years. If you are in a position to appoint our specialist motoring defence solicitors, we shall scrutinise the prosecution evidence to determine whether there is a viable defence available.

In offences such as this, a potential defence is that the injuries sustained did not amount to ‘serious injury’ and / or the driving was not dangerous. If there are prospects in advancing these challenges to the prosecution evidence, our lawyers will advise you accordingly after a full assessment of the evidence has taken place.
