Indianapolis Traffic Attorney

Indiana has some of the strictest traffic laws in the country. When facing the consequences of traffic violations, Banks & Brower are here to help. Having an experienced team of attorneys can mean the difference between retaining your driving privileges and losing them.

Some traffic violations are more serious than others. Some tickets require nothing more than paying a fine or attending traffic school. Other violations can be very serious and require an attorney to navigate the system. Otherwise, the violator could end up losing their driving privilege, paying a high fine, or even losing their freedom.

Some people hire an attorney for seemingly minor traffic violations to try to avoid the long-term financial consequences of an increase in automobile insurance rates. Proper representation for the following, more serious, offenses should not be considered optional.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident

Indiana law requires drivers who are involved in automobile accidents to:

Traffic tickets and criminal charges may be issued if a driver leaves the scene of an accident without permission from the police.

Driving on a Suspended License

Operating a motor vehicle while driving privileges are suspended can result in a $10,000 fine. In certain circumstances, it can also result in Class A misdemeanor charges. In the state of Indiana, a Class A is the most serious misdemeanor charge and it can result in up to a year in jail, along with a fine.

Habitual Traffic Violator

A driver who has multiple traffic violations during a ten-year period can be charged as a Habitual Traffic Violator (HTV). Depending on the number and severity of the violations, penalties can range from a 5-year suspension to a lifetime forfeiture of driving privileges. This is in addition to any criminal penalties for the violations.
