Miles Teller's Truck Accident, Traffic Law Attorney

We're told Miles Teller was driving in the San Fernando Valley late Thursday night when an Uber driver made a left turn in front of Teller, who was driving with his girlfriend. Miles' Bronco flipped over. He was not injured but enraged and got out of the truck screaming, "You f***** up my truck." 

We're told he was so angry people had to restrain him from attacking the Uber driver. Our law enforcement sources say the accident was not Miles' fault. It's clear from the photo the Uber driver made a left when it was unsafe. An ambulance came and took 2 passengers in the Uber to the hospital after they complained of minor injuries. An eyewitness says Miles appeared concerned about the 2 injured people. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ drugs or alcohol did not play a factor in the crash. We're told Teller put about $200k in the restoring his SUV over the years... ouch. It's interesting... Miles' 2 biggest movie roles -- "Whiplash" and "Bleed for This" feature his characters getting in a bad car accident. And, when he was 20, he got in a near-fatal car crash. Source: www.tmz.com

Viewing the guilt of the aggressor as the basis for justification of private defence is the classic and most common theory in Anglo-American law, which provides us with a basic description of this viewpoint. The approach focuses on the rights of the aggressor. Its starting point is the general right to life that is granted to all human beings. The central argument of this approach is that the aggressor, by his guilty act, loses his right to life, or, at least, the right to claim this right. Nancy M. Omichinski illustrates this theory with the accepted description of ‘moral forfeiture of the right to life.’ She explains that even though the right to life is traditionally considered to be non-transferable, it is however normally considered as one, which can be lost—as noted by the philosopher John Locke, and the jurists Blackstone and Feinberg. This is the basic description of the theory—a description that it is easy to criticise. If the theory assumes that the aggressor—by his act—agrees that his life may be taken as a result of a defensive act, then this is a fiction, because the aggressor probably did not even think of this possibility. What is the dominant factor—the aggressor’s culpability, the very fact of his attack or both of these? In the legal literature there is sometimes mention of guilt alone, and sometimes of guilt connected to the ‘wrongful act’ of the aggressor. In the philosophical literature there is a dispute concerning this matter, which reaches its peak in the exchange of articles between Montague and Wasserman. The essence of this argument is that Montague based the rationale for private defence on the fact that the aggressor forces a choice between lives by the very fact of his attack, in conjunction with the aggressor’s guilt which, in his opinion, is the important factor. In the opinion of Wasserman, Montague emphasises the guilt of the aggressor far too heavily, and does not consider the tremendous importance of the very fact of the attack from a moral standpoint. The establishment of private defence and its justification will always require all of the three factors (the aggressor’s guilt, the autonomy of the person attacked and the social-legal order). Private defence is, simultaneously, a defence both of the autonomy of the person attacked and of the social-legal order, by means of essential and reasonable defensive force against the aggressor who is criminally responsible for his attack. There is an argument that the requirement of a mental element of any sort for the establishment of justification should be avoided due to utilitarian considerations. For the requirement of a mental element deters individuals from performing actions whose performance is actually desired by society. In American law also, as in English law, a mental element is required for the establishment of private defence. Moreover, the actor’s awareness of the justifying circumstances is usually insufficient, and a purpose of self-defence or protection is also required. In this matter, the Model Penal Code reflects the existing law. Robinson, for example, presents the following case: a large fire approaches a village and is liable to kill its residents. The way to stop it is to burn a private field that stands in its path. His argument is that if we demand a certain mental element in order to establish justification of the ‘lesser evil’, we shall deter the actor, who hates the field owner, from burning the field and thereby saving the population of the village.

Traveling any speed over 85 miles per hour, regardless of the posted speed limit.
