Insurance & Registration Tickets

Make sure that you have someone you can depend on to help you get and stay in compliance with the changing laws. Contact the Criminal Defense Team of Hatch, Little, & Bunn to discuss how we can get you back on the right path and back in the driver’s seat.
Insurance tickets can be a deceptively complicated issue. Many times, there is a mistake in the State’s system indicating that you do not have insurance when in fact you do. In this situation, we can commonly acquire an FS-1 form from your provider in order to have your case dismissed. Even when there is not such a clerical error, a Criminal Defense Team can help you explore your options to protect your license. With the proper defense, these types of cases can be difficult for the State to prove against you. Knowing your rights and options can help keep you from paying unnecessary court costs and fines and keep you from having your license suspended.
In cases where an accident is involved, insurance tickets can be a real burden on you and your license. For example, if you are involved in an accident without insurance, the DMV can put a hold on your license that will indefinitely suspend your license until the hold is removed. Many times, this is done through negotiations with the insurance provider of the owner of the other vehicle involved in the wreck. Until that insurance provider signs a release to the DMV that takes the hold off your license, you will be in a state of revocation and unable to drive.
Insurance tickets can be handled favorably with the right defense. Make sure you are fully protected and call our team today.
Registration tickets are compliance charges. This means that our team can commonly have them dismissed if the vehicle is brought within compliance of the law. However, there can be complicating circumstances. Sometimes the vehicle in question is now totaled or sold, and you have no way of showing your compliance to the state. Maybe your car is in need of expensive repairs that you have been trying to make to bring it within compliance, but you just don’t have the funds to do so. In other cases, maybe you were driving someone else’s vehicle and you are unable to reach them to provide proof of compliance. Whatever your case may be, you have rights that need to be protected.
Even in compliance charges like these, the State has the burden of proving their case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. Can the State prove that your car was not registered on the date of offense? Can they prove that you were the driver of that vehicle? You may have defenses and options that you are not aware of. Our Criminal Defense Team can educate you on all of your options and walk you through each of them.
