Oklahoma Car Insurance After a DUI
Automobile Insurance After a DUI
There are many factors that you or your loved one may be thinking about after a DUI charge – will you have to pay fines? If so, how much? Will you face jail time? How will this affect your job? Your future?
Many aspects of your life can be affected by a DUI charge, including your car insurance rates. While this may not be the first thing that comes to mind, substantially increased car insurance rates can have long-term financial consequences.
Car insurance is already expensive, and rates can drastically increase after a DUI charge. Oklahoma requires liability insurance once your driver’s license is reinstated after a DUI conviction.
Some states require what is called SR-22 insurance coverage, and this often must be maintained even if you move to another state that does not require SR-22. Oklahoma does not require SR-22 insurance, but premiums can still be raised excessively.
Can You Avoid Steep Increases in Car Insurance Premiums After a DUI?
You can avoid increases in your automobile insurance rates after a DUI charge by fighting back. A charge does not mean a conviction, and a conviction is what will cause your rates to increase. Depending on the circumstances of your case, it may be possible to have your DUI charges dropped or reduced to a non-DUI disposition. In these cases, your insurance premiums will not be raised.
