Our client was charged with dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm after she struck a pedestrian with her motor vehicle. The pedestrian suffered a number of injuries including a fracture hip and a broken arm.
Our client pleaded not guilty and a brief of evidence which included medical reports was served on our office.
A not guilty plea was maintained as the injuries did not amount to grievous bodily harm.
After extensive negotiations with the prosecution, the police agreed to withdraw the charge and our client avoided going to gaol.
