Do I Need A Lawyer For A Traffic Violation?
Minor traffic violations like parking tickets usually involve a small fine and do not require the use of an attorney or a court appearance. However with more serious violations that include court appearances, it can be wise to consult with a lawyer. These violations include:
- Speeding tickets
- Driving uninsured
- Driving with a revoked or suspended license
- Driving with an expired license
- Hit and run accidents
- Reckless driving
- Leaving the scene of an accident
- Lane change violations
- Habitual traffic offenses
- Arrest warrants for unpaid traffic violations
Different traffic violations have different penalties and therefore vary in severity. Some traffic offenses, like Driving with License Suspended or Revoked, Driving with No Insurance/Registration and DUI are considered far more serious than others and can compound leading to felony treatment. These serious offenses along with others can lead to even more serious felony charges in the event of injury or loss of life. Even speeding tickets can result in points on a person’s license and possible license suspension if the driver is a habitual offender.
