How a DUI Conviction Could Affect Your Insurance Rates

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.
