Dangerous Operation Causing Death - No evidence to Offer

Fisher Dore Lawyers

Our client was charged with two counts of dangerous operation causing death and one charge of dangerous operation causing grievous bodily harm. Our client was an elderly gentleman who was involved in a car accident in central Queensland. He himself was significantly injured and had no memory of what had transpired.

After discussing the matter with him and obtaining his medical file, Nick established that the unfortunate accident may have been attributed to by our client’s pre-existing medical condition that then made it an unavoidable incident. The appropriate expert report was provided by a neuroscientist and it was established that our client had in fact suffered a mini stroke whilst driving.

As a result of this information, a submission was forwarded to the Director of Public Prosecutions that saw the charges against our client discontinued. This case is another example of how thorough investigation and preparation and utilising the right team can get results for our clients.
