How a Lawyer Can Help You with your Traffic Ticket

LegalShield’s small monthly membership fee allows you to access legal help that can make a big difference. While traffic laws can vary by state, moving traffic violations that can impact your motor vehicle record can include speeding, failure to yield, and stop sign violations. More serious traffic violations that can even carry the possibility of jail time include hit-and-run and reckless driving. Non-moving violations generally include parking tickets and defective equipment on your vehicle.

Before you ever just pay a ticket or seek to represent yourself, you have the right to seek advice and assistance from an lawyer. If you are a LegalShield member, you should contact your provider law firm and provide them a copy of the ticket as soon as possible to preserve your rights and receive the necessary counsel.

Potential Impact of Traffic Tickets

Traffic offenses can not only carry significant fines and costs, but they can also impact your driving record. More serious offenses may even impact your driving privileges and carry the possibility of jail time, and for those operating a commercial motor vehicle, can result in the loss of your commercial driver’s license and subsequently your job.

Having a provider lawyer represent you can help lower the stress of handling the matter on your own. While a traffic lawyer may not be able to get the fines and costs reduced, they may be able to advocate for you to minimize the impact of a traffic ticket on your motor vehicle record. A lawyer can advise a client as to their options and represent them before the court.

Auto Accidents

If you are involved in an accident, including incidents involving reckless driving or DUI/DWI, you have the right to seek advice and representation from a lawyer. If you are a LegalShield member and involved in an accident, there is 24/7 emergency access for covered legal emergencies including automobile accidents that result in bodily harm or personal injury.

Even if you are not injured, a lawyer can help you with issues related to your property damage claim for your car. If your vehicle is damaged but can be repaired, it may still lower the value of the vehicle. An insurance company will normally not offer to pay for these additional damages, and the accident can result in increased insurance premiums if you are found at fault. Finally, if it can’t be repaired or the cost to repair is substantial, it may be considered a total loss. 

It is important to understand your options, whether you can seek damages, and how a rental car or loss of use of your car needs to be addressed. Knowing your rights and having access to a provider lawyer in these situations can help you save time, stress and allow you to seek all potential damages.

How LegalShield Works

Finding solutions to your legal issues doesn’t have to be stressful, complicated or expensive.

LegalShield puts the power of legal representation within reach of any individual, family or business. We work hard to make it easy, simple and affordable to get the legal help you need, when you need it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long after I join can I use the plan?

You can use your plan as soon as your membership application is reviewed and your account is set up. The review process takes 12-24 hours (or less) from the moment you purchase your plan (on regular business days). Once accepted, you can be in contact with a lawyer in 4 hours or less and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.

How much can I save with a membership?

The average lawyer in the U.S. charges between $150-$400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1,000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring a lawyer directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having a lawyer on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the lawyers in our network often help our members recover thousands of dollars of damages or avoid thousands of dollars in fees over what they would have experienced had they tried to resolve the legal issue themselves. Obviously every member and usage situation is different, but when used correctly, your membership can easily save significant amounts of money. Not to mention savings from our member perks.

Who is covered under a personal plan?

Our Personal Plan is really a family plan. You, your spouse or partner and your dependents living at home are covered under one membership.

There is more information about this on the Personal Plan Coverage & Pricing Page.
