A reckless driving defense attorney was likely not part of your household budget. However, now that you have been charged with reckless driving speeding, or another reckless driving crime, you face a potential criminal conviction, and a reckless driving defense lawyer may be worth the expense.
Why You Want to Avoid the Cost of a Criminal Conviction
If you are convicted of reckless driving, you may need to pay a fine of up to $2,500. However, the cost of a criminal conviction can go well beyond this one-time cost. A reckless driving conviction can also impact your:
- Auto insurance rates. Every insurance company handles reckless driving convictions differently. However, you should be prepared for your auto insurance rates to rise significantly for up to three years.
- Job. You may be unable to earn an income if you go to jail. Additionally, once you are out of jail, your ability to earn an income may be impacted if driving is one of your job responsibilities, you have a commercial driver’s license, or you need security clearance to do your job.
- Travel costs. If you live out of state and do not have a Virginia defense lawyer representing you, you may need to travel back to Virginia for court dates.
Together, these financial costs may be significant.
