Ben Brown secures Suspended Sentence Order for a Defendant convicted of two counts of causing serious injury by dangerous driving

18/07/2022

The Defendant suffered an epileptic seizure whilst driving and lost control of his car and collided head-on with an elderly couple who sustained serious injuries, including a fracture of the spine.

The Defendant had been warned four months prior to the collision by paramedics and the police that he should not drive and should surrender his licence to the DVLA.

Following mitigation, the Judge was persuaded to take an exceptional course and suspend the custodial sentence.

Ben was instructed by Brian Koffman of Brian Koffman & Co Solicitors.
