Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did he call the Police or report the accident please?Alex
I think you should be ok.
If it was the case that someone just ran out, then it was just an accident. I am assuming your son was not distracted, ie on the phone or anything.
So if it was the case she just stepped out and didnt look, its not your sons fault.
Clearly this will need investigating as there has been a death.
But based on what you have said I do not think there is an issue.
No, you dont need a Solicitor when you talk to them if you dont want to. He may choose to do so, but doesnt need one.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
He has a legal responsibility to report an accident as soon as possible or in any event within 24 hours. If not, can be prosecuted for failure to report.
Careless driving is where the standards fall below that of a reasonable and prudent driver.
There of course would have to be evidence for this. If there was none, then a charge should not follow.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
The CPS make that decision.
