Why You Need A Traffic Violations Lawyer
You do not always need a lawyer to help deal with moving traffic violations. However, certain cases arise where our need is required. We can help you fight tickets where you think you are in the right. There are, of course, different types of violations out there. Here are some moving traffic violations where you may need a lawyer to intervene.
Traffic Tickets: Strict Liability Offenses
Most traffic tickets out there are for strict-liability offenses. What this means is that no particular criminal intent is required to convict a person of the offense. All there needs to be is proof that the person did a prohibited act. Here are some strict-liability traffic offenses:
- Failure to yield
- Driving a car with headlights or tail lights that are out
- Failure to use turn signals
- Turning into the wrong lane
- Parking in a handicap spot without the required sticker
- Overdue parking meters
If you have proof that you did not commit this offense, then that is when you reach out to a moving traffic violations lawyer like ourselves. We can help you in court. Or if you think the fine is too sever, we can help with that too.
Processing Traffic Tickets
Since many places simply process traffic tickets as minor offenses or infractions, they forgo criminal court. When this happens, the offender is not subject to incarceration or large fines. And is not entitled to a lawyer or a jury trial. However, even though these tickets do not go to court, then still have a negative effect on the person. From their driving privileges to insurance rates, traffic tickets have consequences. So you may be entitled to a lawyer, but you can certainly reach out to them for representation.
The we come to the traffic violations that are considered more serious than infractions. These are the tickets that can rise to the level of a misdemeanor crime or felony. Especially if the offense involves injury to a person or destruction of property. Common examples include a DUI or leaving the scene of an accident. When you get this traffic ticket, you are entitled to all constitutional protections provided to criminal defendants. This includes the right to a court-appointed attorney and a jury trial.
So of course, if the moving traffic violations are severe, then do reach out to our office for trusted representation from a lawyer. We will fight the case for you and do all we can to lessen its penalty.
