Car Accident Lawyer Richmond, VA

Sometimes, we don’t pay attention while driving. Sometimes, we’re distracted by our phones, the radio, or the kids. Which means sometimes, we can miss a stop sign and enter an intersection without first looking to see if it’s clear and safe, first. This can result in an accident which is your fault and could cause serious injuries to you and to others. 

This is a tragic and dangerous situation. Your best course of action is to gain a complete understanding of the options you have available. To do that, speak with an experienced traffic ticket lawyer today.

Don’t Try to Represent Yourself

As a car accident lawyer in Richmond, VA from a firm like MartinWren, P.C. can explain, representing yourself for any legal issue is one of the worst decisions you can make. Your best chance of success is leaving the legal issues up to the traffic ticket lawyer you hire to represent you.

You may think it will save you money. But when you’ve caused an accident because of your failure to stop at a stop sign, the injured person’s attorney will take advantage of the fact that you’re representing yourself and you’ll probably end up paying more than if you would have hired an attorney to help you.

Cost to Hire a Lawyer

Most people think lawyers are extremely expensive. This could be cost prohibitive in your case. But it’s not. Thinking longer term shows you how much we can actually save you.

With a car accident lawyer, your fees are determined by the charge. While it can cost some money, you have to think of what you’re saving. If you’re able to win your case, you avoid:

  • Large settlements
  • Paying excessive court costs
  • Getting points on your license
  • Possibly having your license suspended
  • Higher car insurance rates

When you hire a traffic ticket lawyer, you’re hiring someone to give you their seasoned advice and help you through a complex situation. Your lawyer’s goal is to reduce your fines and help you settle your case with as little harm to you as possible.

A Lawyer can Reduce Your Fine

The right lawyer can reduce your fine and keep points from being added to your license. Having additional points added to your license could end up costing you more money than the fine itself. Your insurance company will raise your rates and you may even have to take public transportation for awhile. 

This is why it’s important to speak with a car accident lawyer as soon as possible. Working with a lawyer gives you access to years of experience helping clients just like you reduce their fines, keep their license, and get back on the road. You need someone you can trust to aggressively fight to protect your rights.
