    Causing Serious Injury by Dangerous Driving | Kangs Motoring Offences Defence Solicitors

    This offence (‘the offence’) was introduced by section 143 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing  and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, by inserting Section 1A into the Road Traffic Act 1988.

    This resulted from the recognition by the authorities that there needed to be created an offence to sit between the existing offences of causing death by dangerous driving and the careless driving offences.

    The Offence | Kangs Motoring Law Advisory Solicitors

    In order to be guilty of the offence the Prosecution must prove that:

    • the accused’s driving fell far below the standards of a competent and careful driver,
    • it would be obvious to a competent and careful driver that the accused driving was dangerous,
    • serious injury was caused amounting to grievous bodily harm as defined by the Offences Against the Person Act 1861.

    Sentencing | Kangs National Driving Offences Team

    The offence can be tried in either in the Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court:

    • the Magistrates’ Court can impose a prison sentence of a maximum of twelve months and/or the statutory maximum fine.
    • the Crown Court can impose a prison sentence of a maximum of five years and/or a fine.
    • a conviction in either court carries a mandatory two years disqualification together with the requirement to take an extended driving test to obtain a new driving licence, once the disqualification order has expired.
