Why Fight A Traffic Violation?
Being stopped by police and charged with a traffic violation is not something drivers should ignore or take lightly. Depending on the severity of the infraction, convictions can result in sharp increases in your auto insurance rates, accumulations of points on your driving record, and even the loss of your driving privileges.
At Aldridge & Birdwhistell Law Firm, we represent clients charged with everything from speeding tickets to reckless driving, to leaving the scene of an accident. We examine the evidence against them and construct a robust defense that minimizes legal and financial repercussions wherever possible. Whether you live in Louisville, Elizabethtown or elsewhere in Kentucky, we will review the state’s case against you and advise you on the optimal steps to take in your situation.
Benefits Of Hiring A Lawyer For A Traffic Violation Case
Many drivers may feel it is easier or more convenient to plead guilty to an infraction and pay the fine, or attend a “traffic school” course to reduce the impact on their driving record. However, many factors come into play when you are charged with a traffic violation. Some benefits of hiring an attorney can include:
- Advice from an experienced legal professional on Kentucky’s current laws and how judges interpret them
- Streamlining your time commitment – compared to representing yourself in a court appearance or attending traffic school
- Assistance with preparing your case, if it ends up in court, and presenting witnesses and testimony that supports your side of the story
- Help negotiating a plea deal which may minimize legal consequences that could include losing your license and jail time
Hiring an attorney can greatly increase the likelihood of a “not guilty” verdict, which can save you in terms of paying court costs, fines and insurance rate increases.
