Depending on the circumstances, red-light violations can lead to varied consequences such as a steep fine, points on your license, and a potential increase in insurance rates. Therefore, it is so important that you hire a lawyer to defend you.

Tickets After Accidents
When you are involved in a car accident, it is a legal requirement that you call the police to come to the scene. Even if the accident is not severe, they need to examine the scene to make a police report. At this time, they will try to gather enough evidence to determine who caused the accident and they may issue tickets. If you catch the blame for a car accident, you could face anything from a minor traffic infraction to a serious misdemeanor or felony crime.
The aftermath of an accident is already stressful enough, from dealing with your insurance company and the other party’s attorney to possible car repairs and hospital bills. Having the police issue tickets on top of everything else can be especially taxing, especially when you consider the penalties of receiving a ticket. Our attorneys can work with you to help lower the impact of tickets on your insurance, record, and wallet.

Reckless Driving Ticket
Unlike speeding tickets and other moving violations, which are considered civil violations, reckless driving is a criminal offense that has more severe penalties. Charges of reckless driving may also accompany other charges, including DUI, racing, and accident-related traffic offenses. These charges, alone or together, may have a significant impact on your ability to drive and can also impact your criminal record. Penalties for reckless driving include fines and court costs, license suspension or revocation, driving school, and even possible jail time.
If you have been charged with reckless driving, it is crucial that you get the defense that you need to lessen or eliminate the potential penalties. At Burgos and Associates, our lawyers understand the traffic laws in the state of Louisiana and how to present an effective defense that looks out for your best interests.

Driving on a Suspended License Ticket
Driving while your license is suspended or revoked in the state of Louisiana is considered a serious offense. If you knew that your license was suspended, you may even be facing criminal penalties, including hefty fines and a lasting mark on your criminal record. You do not even have to know that your license was suspended – you can still get the violation and many of the penalties that come with it.
At Burgos and Associates, we can defend you against an alleged criminal traffic violation and will fight to keep your penalties as low as possible, if convicted. We will also work to get your license reinstated when possible. Call us at (504) 488-3722 or fill out the contact form below to schedule your consultation.
