I've Been Issued a Ticket. Do I Need a Lawyer?
Traffic tickets are ordinary, and many people receive one in their lifetime. If you were in the wrong and paid the refined and complete traffic school, you usually do not have to worry. However, in certain circumstances, such as if you believe you did nothing wrong or if you have unpaid tickets, assistance from an experienced attorney can help you if you are facing more severe penalties.
A few of the most common types of traffic tickets you might receive include:
- Using your cell phone while driving
- Running a stop sign
- Running a red light
- Changing lanes illegally
- Passing illegally
