Section 10 on appeal for negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm

Recent Cases

Our client was charged with negligent driving after he was involved in a traffic accident with a motorcyclist in which our client was at fault. The motorcyclist was really seriously injured. We represented our client in Newtown Local Court, where he was convicted and placed on a community service order. We appealed the decision to the District Court, where the judge overturned the sentence and put our client on a 12 month good behaviour bond with no conviction, remarking that the motorcyclist’s unfortunate injuries were not a measure of our client’s negligence.
