Causing death by dangerous driving in South Australia.

Use our experienced, reliable and respected team in Adelaide.

We attend all courts in South Australia. We protect your rights!

Unfortunately, the sad reality of being on the road is that on occasions a life is lost. If you are the driver of a motor vehicle where another person is injured, or death results, you may face very serious charges.

At Woods & Co Lawyers have dealt with many high-profile causing death matters. We were solicitors in one matter that went before 5 Supreme Court Justices, where the Crown were asking for sentencing tariffs to be applied. Thankfully, the Full Court of the Supreme Court realised that the wide range of offending requires a flexible system. In two recent decisions, we were one of the first law firms to secure a sentence of home detention as opposed to actual imprisonment.

At Woods & Co Lawyers we realise that many people are affected if a death results. Not only is the family of the deceased very traumatised, but also in our experience, the families of the offender are also equally innocent and suffer greatly. We will help you through these difficult times and ensure that your matter is properly investigated to ensure fairness. In order to defend a Causing Death by Dangerous Driving charge, we take the view that an experienced solicitor should be involved. The consequences are great and if found guilty actual terms of imprisonment are normally imposed. It is becoming less common to receive a suspended term of imprisonment. We are here to help you and your family and protect your rights.

Causing Death by Dangerous Driving in Adelaide

Decades of Traffic Law Experience in Adelaide

Dangerous Driving involves driving which exposed other road users to risks which are wholly unacceptable. Dangerous driving can involve Speed, manner or gross negligence. If death is not caused then the penalties are still significant. You may face allegations of causing serious harm or the lesser offence of causing harm. At Woods & Co Lawyers we have the experience and reputation to successfully advice you whether you may be guilty of a lesser charge such as driving without due care. While a death may still result the penalties are significantly different as the law focuses mostly on the objective manner of driving. If a person has a momentary loss of concentration then they may be guilty of driving without due care.

I contacted woods and co lawyers with a matter that I was not convinced could be resolved. After my meeting with Vivian Ngo, I was assured that she would do everything she could to help. Vivian was successful and my matter resolved quickly. I think Woods and Co , especially Vivian Ngo, are worth their weight in gold! Thank you again Ferruccio Cardellini ( Fish )

I would like to draw attention to the excellent and professional conduct of Ben chehade at woods and co, he worked tirelessly, and communicated with my partner and I every step of the process, After hours included to put together a genuine supporting argument to secure me a favourable result on a criminal matter, I will make it clear that breaking the law will always draw a penalty I know this first hand, And all people make mistakes, I'm not proud of it. But with a energetic, confident lawyer like Ben on your side he will secure you a fantastic and fair result !!!!! To Ben I say thankyou!!!

They are reliable, honest and operate with integrity. I recommend them to anyone who is looking for some great legal advocacy and support. Ben always takes the time to answer any questions I may have, and provides me with all the options available. As a new with a legal matter, it can be difficult to find a suitable lawyer. I was lucky to be connected to Ben. On another note, their charges were also very reasonable to the services they provided.
