Legal Protection for Traffic Matters
Your personal legal plan allows you to contact your provider law firm to get legal advice for any personal legal matter, including issues related to auto accidents, your driver’s license, motor vehicle record, or moving traffic violations. There is 24/7 emergency access for covered legal emergencies which can include if you are involved in an automobile accident that results in bodily harm or personal injury.
Accident and Traffic Attorneys Understand the Legal System
Working with an experienced attorney can have a dramatic impact on the outcome of any auto related incident. A LegalShield plan gives you access to a provider law firm. Your provider attorney will speak with you to get the details of your situation, then advise you on the best course of action. In addition to giving legal advice, your provider attorney can also represent you in court if needed.
LegalShield’s small monthly fee allows you to access legal support that can make a big difference.
How an Attorney 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 attorney. 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
Moving traffic violations not only can carry significant fines and costs, but they can impact your motor vehicle record. More serious offenses can even impact your driving privileges and carry the possibility of jail time. Having a provider attorney represent you can help lower the stress of handling the matter on your own. While an attorney may not be able to get the fines and costs reduced, they may be able to advocate for you to minimize the impact on your motor vehicle record. An attorney can advise a client as to their options and represent them before the court.
If you are involved in an accident, you have the right to seek advice and representation from an attorney. If you are a LegalShield member and involved in an accident, you should contact your Provider Law Firm. There is 24/7 emergency access for covered legal emergencies which can include if you are involved in an automobile accident that results in bodily harm or personal injury. Even if you are not injured, an attorney can help you with issues related to your property damage claim which can be very important to any car owner. Even if your vehicle can be repaired, it may still lower the value of the vehicle. An insurance company will normally not offer these additional damages. If it can’t be repaired or the cost to repair is substantial, it may be considered a total loss. It is important to know what your options are, the damages you have a right to seek, and how a rental car or loss of use needs to be addressed. Knowing your rights and having access to a provider attorney in these situations can help you save time, stress, and allow you to seek all the damages you are entitled to.
