Hiring a traffic lawyer saves your money in the long run
When you hire an legal professional to fight a speeding ticket or other traffic violation, you will have to pay a payment to legislation firm. But you will find that paying a one-time cost to a traffic attorney is worth it to prevent the rise in your insurance rate that will likely result after the ticket shows up on your driving record. It is possible that simply a single traffic violation could cause up to 22 percent increase in your insurance premium. This is a pretty significant increase that is worth avoiding, if possible. Instead of paying the fine, hire a traffic legal professional to operate for your rights and fight your ticket. The results can help you to avoid higher insurance rates which could last for between 3 and 10 years, depending on your insurance company’s policy.
A competent and experienced attorney will, regardless of the circumstances surrounding a violation, will work to lower your penalties, negotiate for alternative penalties, or have the traffic ticket dismissed altogether.
Lowering Ticket Penalties – In general, this involves convincing their state to dismiss or decrease your fines and / or the assessment of driver’s license points. This will not only save you money in fines, but may also help you avoid higher insurance rates and driver’s license suspension.
Negotiating for Alternative Penalties – Attending traffic school is a common and popular option to a standard ticket penalty. Completing the course may help keep your driver’s license points from accumulating, preventing your insurance costs from escalating. Thus, when offered traffic school rather than something much more serious, don’t hesitate to seize the opportunity.
Having the Ticket Dismissed – Competent traffic ticket legal representatives are well-versed on traffic laws. Thus, they know the right ways to get the traffic ticket dismissed, including:
The issuing officer’s non-appearance in court
Your agreement to plea to a less serious violation
Avoid the hassle of clearing your blemished driving record
When you are issued a ticket for a traffic violation, points are assigned to your record. These points are what lead to elevated insurance rates. With each violation, more points are added. In the event that you receive too many points in a certain time frame, you could face a suspended or revoked driver’s license. Points eventually fall off as time passes without incident, or you can attend traffic school to have some points removed. When you hire a attorney to dispute your ticket, you will not receive any points on your record provided that the outcome is successful. Your lawyer will probably have an attractive wise decision what the outcome will be before accepting your case. While you avoid points, you avoid increased insurance rates, the trouble of traffic school, and the possibility of losing your license.
