Driving Without Insurance in Connecticut
Fight Your Traffic Infraction Allegations with Our Defense Team
Connecticut law makes it clear that all drivers are required to carry auto
insurance. The minimum liability car insurance is $20,000 for bodily injury
per person per accident ($40,000 for bodily injury total per accident)
and $10,000 per accident for property damage. Despite this requirement,
law enforcement hands out tickets all the time to drivers who can’t
provide proof of insurance or who are caught driving without insurance.
Driving without insurance means two things: if the driver gets into an
accident, he or she can be held both criminally and civilly responsible
for any injuries and other damages he or she causes, and even if the driver
doesn’t cause an accident, he or she can still be penalized for
breaking the law.
If you have been cited by law enforcement for driving without insurance,
you may benefit from having an experienced attorney on your side. Driving
without insurance could result in penalties including:
- Fines ($500 for the car owner and up to $1,000 for the car owner)
- License and registration suspension
- Jail time (if your driving history is particularly bad)
- Reinstatement fees
If you’re like most people, your ability to drive is extremely important,
and anything that threatens your driving privileges could cause significant
inconvenience. If you have found yourself in this situation, we encourage
