Texting While Driving And Criminal Negligence | Mock Trial
By Pace Law | January 21, 2014
Pace lawyers Alex Voudouris, Albert Conforzi, and Michelle Arzaga were invited to present a mock trial to the Ontario Brain Injury Association, in order to teach people about the consequences of texting while driving.
The mock trial involves the case of a teenage driver who was driving home with four friends after a party. Texting at the wheel, she lost control of the car and plowed into a light pole. One passenger was seriously injured in the car accident, while another was killed.
This mock trial demonstrates the role of the judge, jury, Crown and defence in a courtroom. The charge is Criminal Negligence Causing Bodily Harm and Criminal Negligence Causing Death.
Pace’s personal injury lawyers have been helping car accident victims since 1980.
