Our Firm Will Use Our Knowledge To Craft An Effective Defense For You
Even just a few points can result in higher insurance rates for several years — something that can literally cost you thousands of dollars.
Too many points and the insurance company can refuse to renew your policy or even cancel your insurance policy. Once this happens, you will face enormous difficulty in getting another insurance company to issue a new policy at a price you can afford. In addition, it is illegal to drive without insurance in New York, so you will have to pay whatever price they ask or risk the more severe consequences of getting caught driving with no insurance.
Our attorneys know what’s at stake in terms of your insurance and will fight to keep any new points from being added to your record.
