Causing Serious Injury by Dangerous Driving – Driver Escapes Immediate Custody
SBC Barristers are also members of the Independent Bar, acting through chambers, so that other firms of solicitors might instruct them independently of SBC, taking advantage of the skill set and contacts that the barristers can offer whilst being able to continue to litigate the case themselves.
Harry Bowyer was instructed in this manner by a highly regarded firm of Motoring Lawyers to mitigate for one of their clients who had been found guilty of Causing Serious Injury by Dangerous Driving.

After hearing mitigation the Judge suspended the inevitable custodial sentence
