Traffic Violations Attorney: Eugene, Springfield, and Surrounding Areas
Most traffic offenses are “violations” (not a misdemeanor or a felony), which means that there is no risk of jail, and the penalty is usually just a fine. Other traffic offenses are more serious, including DUI, Vehicular Assault, Reckless Driving, Hit and Run, Criminal Driving While Suspended, and others, and can involve jail, probation, and other consequences. In all traffic cases, there may be a risk of losing your driver’s license. If you are convicted of a traffic offense in Oregon, it will be on your record permanently and may not be expunged.
In most minor traffic violation cases, hiring a lawyer can be more expensive than just paying the ticket. However, if there is a risk of losing your license, if there was an accident that could result in civil liability, or if you simply are not guilty of anything and want to challenge the ticket, it may be worth talking to an attorney about your legal options. If you are charged with a more serious traffic offense (any misdemeanor or felony), it is very important to talk to an attorney about your options and the potential risks and consequences of your case. If you have questions about a traffic ticket or motor vehicle offense, please call Daniel R. Kruse, Attorney at Law, at (541) 870-0605 for a free consultation.
