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.

I arranged for my nephew to see Mr Kang as he was facing a driving ban after getting 12 points in three years. Mr Kang gave my nephew detailed advice on obtaining the necessary evidence for his court case. Mr Shocker represented him at the magistrates court and instead of being banned he received a modest fine. All within a week or two!

Howard Jacobs

I would highly recommend Kang & Co and in particular Manjinder Kang. He was very professional, provided excellent advice ending in a positive outcome. Thank you.

Mr Kang who met with me and Mr Wheeler who represented me in court were brilliant, could not have survived the experience without them! Not sure how anyone could, as I, approach an experience like this was for me, a first time appearance in court without seeking help, advice and representation from a lawyer/s such as these two great examples.
