Driving without due care

These days the Police are less inclined to consider an accident was just that – an accident.  If they believe a driver was (or may have been) the cause of an accident, then it is highly likely that driver will be prosecuted for driving without due care and attention.  However, I can often persuade the Court to find a driver not guilty because the standard of driving did not drop below that of a reasonably competent driver.  This is a criminal charge and the Prosecution must prove the case ‘beyond reasonable doubt’ and that is a much higher standard than a claim for damages in the civil court.

  • 5 star review  Ann successfully represented me in court, today. The case itself had been postponed 3 times, across 8 months, due to Covid, and despite it being disjointed, and ongoing, Ann has remained true to our initial agreement, been calm and clear throughout, and defended my case in an extremely compelling way today. I felt, throughout, that I had someone kind, but also tenacious, in my corner. I'm extremely pleased with the outcome, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ann to others.

  • 5 star review  What a refreshing, personable, knowledgeable and professional woman you are Ann. Thankfully my case never had to go to court as Ann guided and orchestrated the process I needed to follow in order for it not to get that far. Her knowledge and duty of care is beyond belief, and I can honestly say the world would be a better place with people like you in it. Thank you for all your help Ann, and if you want to keep your license, give this woman a call!

  • 5 star review  I couldn't recommend Ann to anyone more. I truly feel as though having Ann take on my university appeal case was a blessing, and couldn't have asked for a better outcome. Not only was she empathetic and understanding towards my situation, but her work was second to none, with so much in depth knowledge, organisation and commitment to my case. A million thanks simply wouldn't be enough, and I wish her the absolute best.
