Death by Dangerous Driving


An allegation of causing death by dangerous driving is extremely serious and you should seek expert legal assistance at the earliest opportunity.  Do not wait to be formally charged by the police!  Sensitive evidence will need preserving urgently.


Our expert team are experienced in cases of causing death by dangerous driving and are here to help.  Call us now on 0800 1933 999.


If you are convicted of causing death by dangerous driving, you will be facing a custodial sentence of up to 14 years as well as a lengthy disqualification and an extended retest before having your licence returned.


Due to the severity of the charge, you should not plead guilty until all avenues have been explored.


Specifically, your defence team will need to review whether you were driving in the manner alleged, and this may give grounds to plead not guilty or to consider a guilty plea for a lesser charge such as causing death by careless driving, which carries a maximum penalty of 5 years’ imprisonment. 


Our team of experts will uncover all of the relevant facts and build a strong case for you, either to defend you against the charge or to mitigate if you accept the allegation. 


We are the leading private criminal defence solicitors in the country, meaning we have no involvement with Legal Aid and only accept cases we believe in and clients we want to fight for.  If your case is important enough for the best legal team, you’re in the right place.  Forrest Williams offer bespoke case preparation, assessing every case individually and creating the case preparation plan that is right for that case, and that client.
