Is It Worth Getting a Lawyer For a Traffic Ticket?
December 19 2020
You’ve been pulled over and issued a traffic ticket. Now what?
Most people pay the ticket and move on with life, but it might be worth hiring a lawyer to fight your traffic ticket. Here’s why:
Traffic Lawyers Know How to Get Out of Tickets
Whether it’s your first ticket or your tenth, your first instinct is probably not to find a mistake in the ticket. You might not think about how to prove that you didn’t commit the offense the ticket claims you did. Traffic lawyers know how to find errors in the ticket that you wouldn’t even think to look for.
Paying a Traffic Ticket Has Consequences
Paying a traffic ticket is more than just a financial inconvenience. When you pay a traffic ticket you admit guilt, and this can have some lasting consequences. Even the most minor tickets can mean increased insurance rates and points on your driving record. In California, accumulating too many points on your driving record ultimately leads to a suspended license.
Some of the more consequential traffic citations like DUIs and driving on a suspended license can be even more problematic. Hiring a skilled traffic lawyer can significantly reduce the short– and long-term consequences of traffic tickets.
Traffic Lawyers Fight For Your Rights
It’s not unusual for drivers in California to not know their rights. Traffic lawyers have spent years learning and defending those rights, so they can fight for your rights when you don’t know how. Your chances of having a reduced or dismissed ticket is much higher when you have a traffic lawyer who knows the law thoroughly on your side.
It Doesn’t Cost As Much As You Think
Most people assume lawyers are too expensive and so they don’t even contact one. Some lawyers do charge a lot, but traffic lawyers are able to handle a lot of cases in one day so their rates are much more affordable.
