My son had a road traffic collision on the 27th April 2016,

Customer Question

My son had a road traffic collision on the 27th April 2016, due to his injuries, he was taken to hospital, where he was breathalised by a police officer & as far as I am aware his reading was 90. He was then arrested & asked to provide a blood sample which he did willingly. He was then de arrested & we have heard nothing since. How long should he expect to wait? I am in a dilemma as to what to do now as we are going through a claim with his insurance company. If he buys a new vehicle and is convicted further down the line, will the insurance company re possess the car? I have heard that they have got 6 months to convict. Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks. Sadly the Police have up to 26th September to charge for this offence. They havent got 6 months to convict just to bring a charge/information.Sadly he just needs to wait. If he buys a new car further down the line and is convicted his car wont get repossessed but he may need specialist insurance as his existing policy may be cancelled.But he just needs to sit tight at present - nothing may happen. I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
