Get the Best Outcome for Auto Accidents & Traffic Tickets
Whether a minor fender bender or a major moving violation, experienced attorneys can produce better outcomes than trying to handle the situation on your own.
For as little as $24.95 per month, a LegalShield provider attorney can work to eliminate traffic ticket fines and points, reinstate lost driving privileges and make sure insurance companies treat you fairly.
Every Part of Auto Accident and Traffic Law is Covered
Your personal plan allows you to contact your attorney to get legal advice and support with any issue related to auto accidents, your license, parking tickets or moving violations. 24/7 emergency assistance is included.
Accident and Traffic Attorneys Understand How to Work the System
Working with an experienced attorney can have a dramatic impact on the outcome of any auto related incident including getting you out of having to pay a speeding ticket, increasing the amount of money you receive from an insurance company and convincing a judge to let you keep your driving privileges.
LegalShield’s small monthly fee allows you to access legal support that can make a big difference.
Reduce Points, Avoid Fines & Maintain Your Driving Privileges
The more points you have on your license due to moving violations, the more your insurance company will charge you for coverage. Accumulate enough points and the state will suspend or revoke your driving privileges. You owe it to yourself to do everything you can to eliminate, or at least minimize, the impact on your driving record.
Attorneys experienced with motor vehicle accidents, moving violations and traffic court understand how the system works and can often get far better outcomes than you can by representing yourself. Also, the mere fact that you have an attorney representing you can send signals to a prosecutor or judge that you’re taking the situations seriously, which can help your case.
Join LegalShield before you have a traffic related issue and your attorney can work to get you out of having to pay a fines for moving violations, reduce points, and prevent the suspension of your license.
Make Sure Insurance Companies Treat You Fairly
Auto insurance companies want to deny your claim or pay you as little as they possibly can. This is how they maximize profit. Don’t let them push you around.
Before you accept a claim denial or a small settlement check, make sure you speak with an attorney who can explain your rights and negotiate a fair deal. Whether related to vehicle damage, property damage or personal injury, attorneys can make a big difference in the outcome of your insurance claim.
With a LegalShield membership, your attorney can not only provide advice, but write letters or make phone calls on your behalf. When an insurance company gets a call from a customer’s attorney, it’s a whole different ball game.
Have an Attorney Help You Win Court Cases
If an auto accident or traffic ticket has resulted in you having to appear in court, you definitely want an attorney to help you protect your rights and secure the best possible outcome. Trying to represent yourself in emotional situations is never a good idea. Even minor traffic court appearances can turn out better with an attorney representing you.
Should your attorney be unable to help you settle a dispute before heading to court, rest easy knowing that all LegalShield plans include benefits you can use to save a ton of money on attorney representation. If you’re a named defendant in a covered civil suit, 60 - 300 trial dense hours are included at no additional cost.
Furthermore, your membership includes 2.5 hours of attorney time to help reinstate a suspended driver’s license or collect funds for property damage related to an auto accident ($5000 or less per claim included at no additional fee.)
Frequently Asked Questions
What is a pre-paid legal plan and how does it work?
Instead of paying an attorney by the hour, you pay a small monthly fee (starting at $24.95) and have access to an independent attorney that will provide a huge variety of legal services without a huge legal bill. Services like consultation with an attorney, document review, drafting of debt collection letters and defense at civil trials are included as standard benefits. Using the plan just once can save you literally thousands of dollars. Watch the video on our home page for more information.
Using the plan is as simple as signing up and contacting our team. Once you’re a member, customer support will connect you with an independent attorney in your area who specializes in the specific legal issue with which you need help. Also, you can download our super simple app to quickly access your legal benefits and member perks anytime.
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 an attorney in 4 hours or less and begin to use the plan benefits and member perks outlined in the membership agreement right away.
Can an attorney really get fines and points reduced or help me avoid license suspension?
No attorney can guarantee what a prosecutor or judge will decide. That said, attorneys experienced in representing clients in traffic court understand the law and know the arguments that tend to get the best possible outcome. What we can say for sure is that working with one of our attorneys gives you a far better chance having a ticket dismissed, fines and points reduced or maintaining your driving privileges than if you try to represent yourself. It’s absolutely worth the effort.
How much can I save with a membership?
The average attorney in the US charges between $150 - $400 per hour. If you use your membership for even just a few hours a year you could easily save over $1000. If you have a bunch of small legal issues or one rather complicated issue, you can easily save multiple thousands of dollars over hiring an attorney directly. Not to mention the stress you’ll save by having an attorney on call instead of trying to handle legal issues yourself. Also, the attorneys 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.
How can I receive all these legal services for only $24.95?
