Not Guilty – Causing Death By Dangerous Driving

Not Guilty – Causing Death By Dangerous Driving

In a tragic accident that killed a motorcyclist in Wales a Jury found that the lady driver of a motor vehicle not guilty to a charge of causing death by dangerous driving.

The details of the charge of death by dangerous driving charge is reported in the Daily Mail.

The driver was 7 months pregnant at the time and the jury cleared her of driving at a speed

but the Jury cleared the woman after just 5 minutes of deliberation.

She told police: ‘I’m utterly devastated by what happened. I will have to live with this for the rest of my life.’

The prosecution accepted from the very outset that by driving at that speed, the motorcyclist himself was not driving safely and his driving fell below the required standard and that by his actions the driver was not provided with a reasonable ‘opportunity of reacting to his presence on the road.’

Fatal accident claims

Being charged by causing death by dangerous driving even if innocent can be a very stressful time.  Specialist criminal solicitor will be abel to look at the evidence and test the CPS (police) case against the driver charged with the offence.

Our specialism, however as fatal accident claim solicitors is to represent the family who has lost of the life of a loved one. We will also liaise with the police to establish the qualify of the evidence to see if a civil claim (not a criminal claim) can be met against the opposing driver or cyclist etc.  If so, we can take the driver or rider to court and claim fatal accident compensation for the family members left behind.
