Using motoring solicitors for a criminal offence
Being convicted of a serious motoring offence can result in a ban from driving. For some people the loss of their driving licence amounts to loss of livelihood. Even the most minor offences can lead to points being added to your licence, and ultimately to disqualification from driving if these points accumulate through a number of infringements.
Clearly, there may be times when you feel that your speeding fine or parking ticket is justified. At other times, however, you may feel punishment for a certain offence was unjustified, and you decide to challenge a motoring penalty. In those circumstances it is certainly advisable to consult motoring solicitors to find out what your position is with regard to the law, and how you would go about mounting a challenge to the conviction.
Motoring solicitors can consider the details of your claim and tell you whether your case is worth pursuing in the courts. It is especially important to take legal advice where you admit the offence but wish for mitigating circumstances – usually an emergency – to be taken into account.
Motoring offences include:
- Drink driving
- Using a mobile phone while driving
- Failure to stop after an accident
- Dangerous driving
- Contravening traffic signals/traffic lights
Check with your motoring solicitors about the fees they charge. For defending motoring cases, solicitors will often charge a fixed fee because the timings and procedures involved are relatively predictable. As well as putting you in touch with motoring solicitors, Contact Law can also advise on other types of law and any claim you might wish to make.
