A lawyer under Article 286 of the Criminal Code. Violation of the rules of road traffic safety or operation of transport by persons driving vehicles

Reading time: 3 min.

Traffic accidents (traffic accidents) are a rather unpleasant situation that can happen to any person. Most often, accidents occur due to violations of vehicle operation rules or road safety rules. Especially difficult are situations when during a road accident not only property is damaged, but people suffer as well. In this case, you will need the help of professional lawyers. If you need a lawyer under Article 286 of the Criminal Code, the specialists of the Prykhodko and Partners law office will help you with this.

 

Legislative framework of the issue

Let's start with the fact that road accidents can provoke various consequences. Among the worst situations are the deaths of passengers, drivers and other road users. If we consider the legal side of the issue, a road accident is material damage caused, as well as damage caused to the health or life of a person/persons.

Now let's consider in more detail the responsibility provided for in Article 286 of the Criminal Code. Administrative responsibility arises in cases where, as a result of a traffic accident, damage was caused only to cars, and the participants in the accident remained alive and unharmed. In this case, the driver will have to draw up an administrative report. Liability - a fine or deprivation of the ability to drive a motor vehicle for a certain time. If an accident with victims and fatalities occurred due to a violation of traffic rules, a heavier liability arises, namely: restriction/deprivation of liberty.

If the crime is committed while intoxicated, criminal liability will depend on the consequences of the accident: deprivation of liberty from 3 to 12 years, deprivation of the right to drive a vehicle - from 3 to 10 years.

 

Assistance of lawyers under Article 286 of the Criminal Code

If you are charged under Article 286 of the Criminal Code, an important step to take is to enlist the help of professional lawyers. Lawyers Prykhodko and Partners will accompany you from the very beginning of the case until its conclusion in your favor. We will follow up on all the procedural nuances and help to draw up all the documents as professionally as possible. In addition, our experts will ensure that all the details of the case are true (examination results, witness statements, etc.). All this will further influence the significant softening of the sentence and the minimization of the punishment.

The main thing to remember is the following: if there is an opportunity to avoid criminal liability under Article 286 of the Criminal Code, it is better to do it in any legal way. This can be, for example, settlement at the pre-trial stage of the issue with the injured party.

Of course, most often the law is on the side of the victim. However, for the compensation received as a result of the accident, the injured person must file a civil lawsuit. This will require confirmation of treatment (receipts, relevant extracts from the history of treatment).

Thus, after a detailed analysis of the case and collection of the necessary evidence, attorneys Prykhodko and Partners think of strategies to protect the client. Among the most common protection models:

  • Closing the case by proving the absence of a crime or by signing a settlement agreement with the victims.
  • A significant reduction in punishment.
