What are the Steps to Our Defense at a DMV Fatality Hearings? Let’s be perfectly clear. Conducting and winning a Fatality Hearing before the California Department of Motor Vehicles is much, much, more than sitting down and having a chat with the Hearing Officer. A winning defense at a Fatality Hearing requires that your representative be prepared to object to exhibits, introduce evidence, and be prepared to examine and cross-examine witnesses. A proper Fatality Hearing is run similar to a “mini trial” and requires that your DMV Defense Expert be fully trained and experienced in Administrative Law, the Vehicle Code, the Evidence Code, and the California Code of Procedures. While every driver has the absolute right to defend themselves at a Fatality Hearing, doing so is often futile. The issues are too complex and the DMV Hearing Officer is allowed to presume that you are guilty and that you caused or contributed to the death or serious injury of another person while operating a motor vehicle. If your driving privilege is precious, the best defense in protecting that privilege is to call the DMV Defense Experts at California Drivers Advocates (CDA).
CDA is a group of Administrative Law Specialists, Private Investigators, Former Police Officers, Former DMV Hearing Officers, and Scientists all devoted to protecting California Drivers at Administrative Hearings before the California DMV.
Our defense at a Fatality Hearing is basically comprised of four steps:Investigation,Preparation,Presentation & Follow-Thru. These steps may seem simple and almost common-sense but all four rely upon each other and must be presented equally to “cover the bases” and provide you the best chance of victory. Our DMV Defense Experts have been fighting and winning Fatality Hearings for years and understand the critical importance of each and every stage of our process. Because our defense at Fatality Hearings works……… You can WIN a Fatality Hearing.
