It might have happened when you were driving along just fine until someone blew a red light and slammed into your vehicle at the intersection. It might have happened when you were stopped at that same stoplight, and someone rear-ended your vehicle. It might have happened when you yourself had difficulty stopping at that same light, and now face the prospect of losing your license. There are many potential factors which might have brought you to traffic court, but however and whatever those circumstances may be, the fact remains that you’re going to want a quality legal team on your side advocating for you.
Too often, people overlook traffic court as somehow “not worth” bothering with in terms of legal representation. In fact, traffic lawyers are incredibly important, with cases of traffic law having the potential to reshape your life. If you are a plaintiff, you’re looking to get damages for wrongs done to you, and if you’re a defendant, you’re trying to avoid having to pay hefty fines, lose your license, or potentially even serve jail tile.
In all such instances, you’re going to want to seek legal counsel from the best traffic lawyers in Perth.
If you are entering into a traffic law case as the plaintiff, your lawyer will work to get your side of the story. What happened? Where? Why? And how did you as well as the other drivers involved respond? All of these factors can have a huge impact on the case. They will then set about collecting evidence and preparing to present your case before the court. There, they will strive to prove that you were the victim of wrongful or neglectful driving, and are indeed worthy of the damages you seek.
If, on the other hand, you are entering into a case of traffic law as the defendant, your defence team is going to want to do everything in their power to refute the plaintiff’s claims, asserting your innocence and demonstrating that you did not and could not have done what they accuse, or that the incident in question truly was incidental, thus allowing you to advocate for lighter charges and sentencing. Here again, you will want to be completely honest with your attorney, as they can help ensure that you get the best legal representation possible only if they have all of the facts entering into the case. Your defence attorney will work to help protect you from having to pay hefty fines or losing your license.
In both cases, your traffic lawyer will also be able to work with attorneys from the other side, or negotiate with the court, working towards a settlement that’s amicable for everyone.
In short, the best traffic attorneys help protect your rights off the road so you can get back on it as soon as possible.
