Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH)

John Sutton

In Queensland, causing Grievous Bodily Harm (GBH), whether intentionally or just unlawfully, is a very serious criminal offence carrying a maximum penalty of between 14 years and life imprisonment.

Offences of causing GBH will ordinarily result in a custodial sentence with a period of time spent inside a jail, though this is not inevitable and Armstrong Legal’s specialist criminal law team stand ready to advise you on the ways that you might avoid jail if you have been charged.

Because of their very serious nature, if you or a family member has been charged with causing GBH it is essential that you obtain professional legal advice and representation at an early stage.

There are three types of ‘GBH’ offences contained in the Queensland Criminal Code, intentionally causing Grievous Bodily Harm, unlawfully doing Grievous Bodily Harm and dangerous driving causing Grievous Bodily Harm. Select from the links below for more information about each offence:

If you suspect that you may be under investigation, or if you have been charged with an offence, it is vital to get competent legal advice as early as possible. Our lawyers will be able to guide you through the process while dealing with the various authorities related to your matter.
