Success Stories and Publications
Our solicitor Stacey Byrne represented a 71-year-old male at the Armadale Magistrates Court on the 19 February 2019 on two charges of dangerous driving occasioning bodily harm.
The client was charged as a result of a car accident that resulted in two parties being harmed. The car accident occurred at an intersection that was notorious for incidents such as this due to the trees surrounding the intersection and the position of the road.
The client was semi-retired and required his licence to earn any income as he and his wife were otherwise living off their superannuation.
The maximum penalty for a charge of dangerous driving occasioning bodily harm is a fine of $9,000 and a period of imprisonment for 9 months and a mandatory period of disqualification from driving of 12 months.
The client attended our office to seek our representation and assistance. As a result of negotiations with the prosecution, the charges were downgraded to careless driving occasioning bodily harm. This resulted in the client receiving fines of $1,200 per charge and the minimum period of 3 months disqualification from driving.
