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.

I cannot recommend Ann highly enough. Extremely knowledgable, organized, competent, approachable, methodical. Don' t even think twice. Superb barrister. Thank you, Ann
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.
Ann Crighton is Amazing! My partner was summoned to court with driving without due care and attention. We spoke to Ann and straight away she agreed to help us with our plea of not guilt. She organised for us to meet her in person, helped us with understanding paperwork and how the whole process worked as we didn't have a clue. We went to court yesterday and she absolutely smashed it! My partner was found not guilty. The cost was also the best we could find. No hidden fees! Thanks so much Ann for all your help and brilliant result. Kelly and Ashley
