If you are found guilty of a traffic violation, you may be subject to:
- Fines and surcharges due to the court. These alone may justify the expense of a traffic ticket attorney.
- Points added to your license
- License Suspension – Either due to a specific type of violation or an accumulation of points, convictions can lead to suspension of your driver license.
- Revocation – Convictions for certain types of violations can lead to full revocation of your driver license.
- DMV Driver Assessments – Potential state surcharges based on point accumulation.
- Unemployment – If you drive on behalf or your company, accumulation of points makes you a greater insurance risk and could result in your termination.
- Raised insurance premiums – Convictions, even if they carry no points, make a motorist a greater risk to insure and therefore subject to higher insurance rates
Our mission at Feifer & Greenberg is always to eliminate or minimize the potential damage caused by traffic violation convictions. See how we can help.
A note on Automobile Insurance
Our clients frequently ask how much their insurance may go up if they are convicted. Unfortunately, we cannot answer that question. Insurance companies consider factors such as a driver’s age, sex, residence, type of car and driving history in setting rates. There are too many factors for any attorney to speculate. However, our experience does show it is safe to say that the more convictions on your record (and the greater risk you are to insure) the more you will pay for automobile insurance.
