Motorcycle crash

Client was charged with causing the death of a motorcyclist by dangerous driving. The prosecution alleged that the defendant must have seen the motorcyclist approaching but, nevertheless, pulled out into his path. RGM Collision Investigation Services were instructed by the defendant’s advocate to consider the strength of the prosecution case and, in particular, the expert evidence. We were able to show that the motorcyclist, travelling at a speed in the region of 100mph, must have been out of sight when the defendant commenced his manoeuvre. Such was the strength of our defence expert report, the case was dismissed with ‘no case to answer’ and the driver acquitted of all charges.
