3 Reasons to Hire an Attorney if You Get a Speeding Ticket
Rushing to work? Not paying attention to the speed limit? Late to pick up the kids from school? Whatever the reason may be, the consequence is a dreadful speeding ticket that is going to cost you a good deal of money, time, and hassle. Many people think that getting a ticket isn’t a big deal. You might think, “I’ll just pay for it and be on my way.” But there are consequences other than an extra bill to pay. Here are some reasons you should hire an attorney to help you deal with your speeding ticket!
- Save money.
While paying the $200-$400 ticket may at first seem like the cheaper option, your insurance costs are likely to increase for at least three years, up to more than $1,000 per year. A Harnett County traffic ticket attorney can help you fight the ticket or negotiate a plea to a lesser charge AND keep your insurance premiums the same or at a minimum.
- Experienced attorneys can save you time and give you peace of mind.
On most charges, an attorney can appear on your behalf by written waiver of appearance. The attorney knows the judges, the assistant district attorneys that handle your case, and the officers involved. This knowledge and the attorney’s understanding of the system gives you the peace of mind that your ticket will be disposed of in your best interests.
- Get a better outcome.
There are many technicalities that require an experienced attorney’s knowledge. A skilled attorney knows what to do to get your charge dismissed or knows what to reduce your charge to so you get no insurance points. Also, the attorney knows, based on your driving record, the best plea to save your driver’s license points and to keep your license from being suspended.
