Driving Without Insurance
It is not unusual for people to receive a citation for driving without insurance. Some people forget to make their payment. For others, their rates increase due to a violation or accident and they cannot afford to carry auto insurance anymore. This charge is serious and can lead to you losing your license. However, I can often get your charge reduced or dismissed, particularly if you have later obtained insurance. And even if you remain uninsured, there may be solutions that can help you keep your license.
I am attorney Christopher T. Patterson and I have been representing drivers in the Northland communities in the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area since 1980. Over the years, I have worked to provide all of my clients high-quality, sensible solutions at a reasonable price. I fight for every case and care about getting things right.
Driving Uninsured Is More Serious Than You Might Think
If you have received a citation for driving without valid auto insurance, it is important to hire an experienced legal counsel. These are costly cases that merit the attention of a lawyer who can help provide a variety of avenues for defense. As your lawyer, I will argue that the offense was committed unintentionally. By convincing the judge there was no intent, I will fight to plea down the charges or try to get them dismissed entirely. I might also be able to create an affirmative defense, arguing there were circumstances that justified the violation.
There is a difference between not buying required auto insurance and forgetting to carry the updated insurance card in your car. A simple oversight shouldn’t cost you points against your driving record. I can fight to have the citation removed, usually at no cost or fee to you.
