Ohio Traffic Offense and Accident Lawsuit

Ohio Traffic Offense and Accident Lawsuit

Traffic-Offense-Accident-Lawyer-Lawsut-AttorneyAfter being cited for a traffic offense, it’s important that you understand your rights and defend yourself against the charges, as penalties associated with traffic offenses can include hefty fines, points on your driving record, suspension of your driver’s license, spikes in your insurance rates and possibly grounds for a civil lawsuit. In the worst cases, such as those involving vehicular manslaughter, punishments for driving offenses may include imprisonment and loss of family, friends and your career. From speeding tickets to traffic accidents and driving while under the influence (DUI) charges, the Ohio traffic offense attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC are dedicated to defending your rights. In addition to possessing an extensive knowledge of Ohio traffic law, we are skilled guiding our clients through the legal process so they can resolve their case as favorably as possible and, ultimately, move forward with their lives.

Ohio Traffic Offenses

While some Ohio traffic laws are specific to the type of vehicle an individual is operating (e.g., a car versus a motorcycle versus a semi-truck), many of them are not vehicle-specific and are associated with how to obtain a driver’s license, insuring and registering your vehicle and properly operating your vehicle while using it on public roadways. In cases of traffic offenses, you may be accused of violating these laws. Examples of offenses that our Ohio traffic law attorneys are experienced in defending include charges of:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs and operating a vehicle under the influence (OVI)
  • Driving without a license or on a suspended license
  • Driving without any or without sufficient insurance
  • Driving recklessly
  • Leaving the scene of an accident and hit-and-run cases
  • Moving violations, such as speeding, running red lights or stop signs, making illegal u-turns and failing to stop or yield
  • Providing a traffic officer with false information, such as a fake name
  • Failing to use a seat belt or properly restrain a child in a vehicle
  • Failing to use headlights and fix broken indicators on the car
  • Failing to properly secure a load or towed trailer
  • Making illegal modifications to a vehicle

At Wright & Schulte LLC, our Ohio traffic offense lawyers will thoroughly analyze your case in order to build you the strongest possible defense. While we strive to resolve traffic offenses out of court in order to save you legal fees, we are always ready to go to trial to defend your rights and interests, when necessary.
