A motorist who is deemed to have driven dangerously and caused another person to suffer a serious injury can now face up to five years in prison following the introduction of a new offence on 3rd December 2012.
Currently the maximum penalty for an offence of Dangerous Driving is two years imprisonment regardless of the severity of any injury caused.
Serious Injuries often occur as a result of road traffic collisions, especially where driving is dangerous therefore it is anticipated that many motorists will fall foul of this new legislation.
Obtaining legal advice and representation is now more important than ever in cases where an individual is charged with Causing Serious Injury by Dangerous Driving as there is a real prospect that the Court will impose an immediate custodial sentence.
