Ontario Car Accident Ticket Defence

Car Accident Tickets

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a vehicular mishap, not only do you have to deal with the aftermath, but you could also receive accident tickets. These are citations issued by law enforcement officers to individuals involved in car accidents, assuming a violation of the Provincial Offences Act or Highway Traffic Act occurred.

The issuance of a car accident ticket does not automatically imply guilt. Everyone has the right to challenge the ticket in court, that is where Traffic Paralegal Services comes into the picture. Our team of seasoned paralegals is ready to provide legal assistance to those looking to contest these charges.

Consequences of a Car Accident Conviction

The consequences of a car accident conviction in Ontario can be serious. The repercussions go beyond just paying a fine – they may include demerit points on your driving record, increased insurance premiums, and in severe cases, license suspension or even imprisonment.
