We build your strategy on the unique circumstances of your case and to fit your needs.
Dangerous Driving: A Serious Criminal Charge
Dangerous driving is broadly defined in the Criminal Code, leaving police and law enforcement substantial latitude to apply the charge as they see fit. Particularly where you are charged in conjunction with a serious injury or death, you need a knowledgeable legal counsellor to help protect your rights.
Penalties for dangerous driving can include a one-year license suspension, even if no one is harmed as a result. Where a person suffers serious injury, you may be charged with criminal negligence causing bodily harm, for which a conviction can result in jail time up to 10 years. The penalty will increase if a death results. Additionally, any conviction has an impact on your criminal record.
Our lawyers have handled dangerous driving cases involving a wide range of situations, including those involving:
- Excessive speeding
- Impaired driving
- Abrupt lane changes
- Aggressive driving
- Accidents resulting in serious injury
- Criminal negligence causing death
