Of the various consequences that come with traffic tickets, the most overlooked and misunderstood are the insurance consequences. Unfortunately, these consequences are the ones that can end up being the most expensive. In some cases, your insurance could increase 50 percent. In others, your insurance could increase 400 percent, and not decrease for years.
Since 1995, the Law Office of Jason H. Reece has been defending people in Mecklenburg County against traffic violations and the insurance consequences that come with them. We will educate you about the consequences, and then we will do everything we can to reduce or eliminate them.
You probably already know that a traffic violation can result in points that are used for DMV purposes, and that a certain number of points will lead to loss of license. Are you aware that there is a separate point system used for insurance purposes? The more points you accumulate, the higher your insurance rates could skyrocket. These insurance rate increases do not only impact you. They could also impact everyone else insured under the same policy. Needless to say, this is an expense that is best avoided.
Our first step is to try to get the traffic violation amended or reduced. If that approach is not successful, or a reduced charge is not available for the particular violation, we turn to our secret weapon: Prayer for Judgment Continued (PJC). This is a unique North Carolina law that can block insurance points, as well as DMV points.
Our experience means we know how to use this particular option. We also know that it needs to be used carefully, as it is limited in terms of how frequently it can be used. You can be confident in our ability to use this option to your benefit.
Our representation is available to residents of the Charlotte area, as well as people who were charged while visiting the area. We offer reasonable fees.
