A DUI will cost more than you know: Car Insurance

Posted by Mike Sherman | Nov 12, 2018 | 0 Comments

CDL Drivers Charged with DUIA lot of people tend to focus on the legal penalties for DUI but forget about all the other consequences stemming from a DUI conviction. One of the biggest places you will get hit is on your insurance bill.

The reasons are pretty obvious. Any traffic violation will give car insurance companies reason to increase your premiums. Since a DUI is a much more serious offense than speeding, the increase is substantially larger. In fact, there have been drivers in the Pittsburgh area who had insurance companies altogether refuse to cover them. The ones that were willing to, charged exorbitant rates.

Moreover, these rate increases can affect you for years to come. Once the rates go up, they normally stay high. While it is different for everyone, you may end up paying tens of thousands of dollars more just in increased insurance rates.

This is why it is important to keep your driving record clean. If you have been charged with a DUI in Pittsburgh, please call 412-471-5000 for a free case consultation. Attorney Mike Sherman will help you draw up a strategy to fight your DUI case.
