If you have been arrested or charged with
DUI, you may be wondering how a DUI conviction could affect your insurance
rates. Insurance companies consider those individuals who have been convicted
of DUI to be a much higher risk than other drivers. Many insurance companies
will simply cancel coverage following a DUI conviction so they can lower
their own potential risk of having to pay out after a DUI-related accident.
In cases where an insurance company decides to continue providing coverage
to an individual after he or she has been convicted of DUI, that driver
will generally be moved to a high risk category.
High risk drivers are required to pay more costly premiums in return for
a lot less coverage. Since a DUI conviction will remain on your permanent
criminal record, it is unlikely that you will see any future relief on
your costly insurance rates. We realize that the counsel you choose will
have a direct impact on the outcome of your case. Unless you are able
to obtain a dismissal of charges or an acquittal at trial, you will have
to live with the consequences and
penalties of your DUI conviction. Hiring an experienced DUI lawyer from our firm will significantly increase
