The Hidden Consequences of Traffic Convictions in Fairfax VA
Violating the traffic laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia can have potentially serious consequences and should never be taken lightly. Some people might be inclined to simply pay the fine associated with a moving traffic violation, irrespective of innocence or guilt, in order to avoid the hassle of going to court or hiring a lawyer to contest the charge.
This approach is a mistake because it ignores the hidden, or collateral, consequences of conviction. Examples of such collateral consequences, which are not readily apparent, can include but are not limited to increased insurance premiums and suspension of driving privileges.
If you are concerned about paying increased insurance premiums, or maintaining your driver’s license, then Boone Beale is well-equipped to address your concerns. Our team of experienced attorneys has the knowledge and skills to help you successfully resolve your case.
