Driving without auto insurance is a serious driving offense in both New Jersey and New York. If you have been caught driving without insurance, you could lose your driver’s license for a significant period of time, face substantial insurance surcharges, and may face a mandatory jail sentence depending on your situation.
At Sutnick & Sutnick Attorneys at Law, we aggressively defend these charges and work to keep our clients’ driving privileges.
Some of the factors we consider when analyzing a no-insurance charge and building a defense include:
- Did you know there was a lapse in coverage? Insurance policies and coverage periods can be confusing, especially when someone switches insurance. It may be that you did not realize your insurance coverage had lapsed. We will contact your insurance carrier to determine if there is a grace period and attempt to offer mitigating circumstances as to why there was a lapse in coverage.
- Where do you live? New Jersey requires that drivers maintain liability insurance on their automobiles. However, each state has its own laws about insurance, and New Jersey cannot necessarily impose its laws on out-of-state residents. If the car is principally garaged in a state that has different insurance requirements, we may be able to get the charges dismissed.
