This Is Why You Need a Licensing Lawyer In Ann Arbor

licensing lawyer Ann Arbor

Those who handle driver’s license appeals and reinstatements—are few and far between. Look online, and you’ll only find a handful of licensing lawyers in Ann Arbor who attempt to handle this very specialized area of practice. Why? Because there’s a lot of “red tape” to cut through with the Michigan Secretary of State, and the rules/regulations/laws are constantly changing. If you lose your license, you really need a licensing lawyer who specializes in this ultra-niche field.

You Could Be in Big Trouble if You Leave the Scene of an Accident in Michigan

drivers license reinstatement ann arbor

You’re out grocery shopping and bump
s into the car next to you. There’s only slight damage to the other car, so you decide to go about her your day. 

A teenage driver hits a mailbox while backing out of a friend’s house and keeps on going.

A professional driving to work in the middle of the night hits a deer or small animal. He stops but goes off to work. Later, he learns that he hit and killed a bicyclist.

These are real examples of cases that Geherin Law Group has defended in the past year. All of them were charged with “Leaving the Scene of an Accident” (or what is commonly referred to as “Hit and Run.”). These cases ranged from misdemeanor charges to 15-year maximum felony offenses. Each client faced not only driver’s license sanctions, but also a criminal conviction and the real prospect of prison or other loss of freedoms.

Leaving The Scene Of An Accident In Michigan

drivers license reinstatement ann arbor

In Michigan, Leaving the Scene of an Accident statutes punish people who are involved in an 
accident who don’t stop and provide the required information to the other driver or most proximate police department.  Even the term “accident” can be vague, leaving a driver uncertain about what his or her obligations are following a minor incident. “Knowledge” of the accident is another grey area, especially if the driver doesn’t realize the extent of the accident.  Drivers are often unaware of their reporting requirements (after all, when was the last time you heard a public information message telling these people what do in the event of a minor accident, similar to seatbelt use ‘click it or ticket’ or texting/driving ‘it can wait, as it’s against law’)  What information is required to report, other than a name and insurance information? This ambiguity can lead to a separate charge, called “Fail to Report an Accident,” which is still a misdemeanor.
