Dangerous Driving And Criminal Negligence

Dangerous driving and criminal negligence in the operation of a motor vehicle are serious offences that can have significant consequences. These charges are a step up from careless driving, which is a Highway Traffic Act offence.

Criminal negligence charges may involve bodily harm or death, and can be fought by working with a forensic expert to help build a strong defence. The sentencing for criminal negligence is determined by a number of factors, including the degree of poor driving involved and the consequences of the accident.

Dangerous driving causing death or bodily harm is an indictable offence, which means that the person being charged has the right to a hearing in the Superior Court (with or without a jury).
