If you are involved in an uninsured motor accident not only will you be financial responsible for the damages you caused you will also likely have your drivers license suspended. We also wanted to touch on the dangers of continuing you operate your motor vehicle without your license.
The worst part about driving with your drivers license suspended is that you risk getting arrested and charged with Driving with your License Suspended, a class B misdemeanor . A class B carries a range of punishment of up to 180 days in jail and up to a $2000.00 fine. It could actually be worse and snowball if you have prior convictions. If you do get arrested, you will have to post bond to get out of jail while your case is pending, go to court, hire a lawyer to represent you in court and pay a fine or serve jail time or both. There are really no defenses, either your license is valid or its suspended. There is no gray area.
No matter whether you are involved in an accident or receive some sort of traffic violation if your license is suspended it is best to hire a lawyer. In most cases we can resolve the cases so that they stay off your record, keep you from getting surcharges, convictions and suspensions. The Enrique Ramirez Law firm has been successfully handling these cases for over 25 years and could help if you are ever put in a similar situation.
