Traffic Offenses

As humans, we all make mistakes. Many situations are easily resolved with no serious implications. In the case of traffic offenses or misdemeanor crimes, there can be unforeseen difficulties that can turn a simple mistake into a serious problem.

Most people do not need to be completely informed of all laws and the legal processes. But when a traffic offense occurs there is a real need to have someone knowledgeable on hand.

If you are charged of a traffic offense and has been caught driving under the influence of drugs, you must use the experience and expertise of the best drug offense lawyer LargoIt might not be easy finding a good criminal defense lawyer but you will have to put in some effort to find the right one.

There can be other traffic offenses that may occur and could be questionable. Improper lane changes, turns, or other offenses can result in a ticket or a fine. Checking with an attorney who understands traffic laws can help more than many realize.

Some traffic offenses that may need professional legal guidance include:

  • Speeding – even a simple speeding ticket can turn into a problem if ignored. If you are ticketed for going over the speed limit by 20 miles per hour or more, you could be at risk for very high “super speeder” fines. If the speeding ticket is ignored, a warrant could be issued for your arrest, your license could be suspended, or other fines could be applied.
  • Parking violation – a simple parking ticket may not be serious, but there could be situations where you were inappropriately cited. Missing signs, human error, or malfunctioning meters can cause you to be ticketed when you were well within your rights. A legal professional can help you to determine if there was an issue to avoid the parking ticket.
  • Minor accident – just a little tap seems like no big deal in many situations, but some people may react differently. Be aware that even after an accident the victim can file a police report or get the insurance company involved to try and claim damages or injuries. It is best to consult with an attorney to make sure your rights are properly covered whether you are the victim or not.
  • Stop signs or red lights – the infamous traffic cameras that are used in many cities today can leave you with citations in your mailbox. These tickets and fines can become quite hefty. Because these devices are electronic, they are prone to malfunction. It is always a good idea to check with a lawyer who specializes in traffic offenses to determine if the citation is appropriate or if there is a record of the machinery working incorrectly. For police ticketing, there can also be human error or situations where the stop sign is not positioned properly. Legal advice is always a good idea to avoid substantial fines.
  • DUI – in almost all situations, consulting an attorney for driving under the influence is highly advisable. Practically every DUI can have processes that are skipped and shortcuts taken that can help you have the case dismissed.

When looking for a good traffic offense attorney, first check their specialty and their experience. Some attorneys may only work with accident cases, while others may focus on all traffic offenses. Consult with several to find the firm that will meet all your needs and help you avoid more serious problems.

FAQs

frequently asked questions

What is Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is a “last resort” method that is designed to allow the government to provide debt repayment or settlement to those who are unable to pay money that is owed. There are different types of bankruptcy, and there are rules in which to qualify for this service.

How do I know if I qualify?

Generally, you must be in a situation where you have acquired debt that you can no longer repay due to a change in your financial capabilities. Often, bankruptcy occurs after a major life event such as death, divorce, illness, job loss, or any other hardship.

Is bankruptcy right for me?

It is strongly encouraged to make bankruptcy your last resort. Attempt to make arrangements with your debtors first by contacting each one of them directly and discussing reduced payments or the ability to defer payments for a period of time. Many debtors are willing to negotiate to some level to help those in need.

What is the process for filing bankruptcy?

While it is possible to file for bankruptcy on your own, it is highly recommended to use legal assistance. Find a law firm that specializes in bankruptcy and can help you determine which type of bankruptcy is best for your situation. Then the firm can handle all of the needed paperwork throughout the process to make sure your bankruptcy runs smoothly.

What advice can a bankruptcy attorney give me?

The best bankruptcy attorneys will have an initial conversation with you at no charge. The attorney can provide advice on next steps and your alternatives. If you decide to proceed, you may have to pay a small initial fee to begin the filing process.

How often can a person file for bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy can only be filed once every 6 years.

What must I do before I file my case?

Discuss your situation with a knowledgeable attorney, who will also request for a list of all debts. The list should include the company or individual name, the amount owed, account number, and a phone number.

What is an exempt asset?

Depending on the type of bankruptcy, some of your assets can be exempted. This could include your home, vehicle, or certain personal debts such as child support.

Can I pay some creditors if I want to?

With bankruptcy, it is very important to stick to the terms of your agreement. Discuss any situations with your attorney to determine how best to prioritize payments.

Will filing bankruptcy hurt my credit?

Because bankruptcy often results in debtors losing money, your credit score will be dramatically impacted. A record of your bankruptcy can remain on your credit report for as long as ten years.

Can I choose which type of bankruptcy to file?

How do I choose the right one? Choose a law firm that specializes in bankruptcy to help you determine which choice is best for your particular situation.

What are the main differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

In a chapter 7 bankruptcy, virtually all of your assets are used to repay the debt, and then the remaining debt is put into structured payments that must be completed within a set period of time, typically 3-5 years. A chapter 13 bankruptcy allows you to retain some of your assets such as home and vehicle and restructured payments are put into place.

Will I be able to keep my property and assets if I file Bankruptcy?

It depends on the type of bankruptcy, but your attorney can help you determine how best to keep the assets you need.

Can I file Bankruptcy on my own?

It is possible but the paperwork and legal process are extremely time-consuming and very complicated. In a vast majority of cases it is much easier to use a skilled attorney.

Are there alternatives to Bankruptcy?

Everyone is always encouraged to use bankruptcy as a last resort. Some people may be able to repay debts simply by living within their means and adhering to a budget. Others may need to negotiate a reduced payment with their debtors. But in some cases, bankruptcy is the only alternative.
