Costs of Georgia DUI – A DUI Arrest Can Hammer Your Automobile Insurance Premiums

Thursday, February 10, 2011

I recently heard a story about a 30 year old man who was arrested for
DUI in Georgia. He has never had an accident. Allstate Automobile
Insurance Company raised his Georgia minimum automobile liability
insurance coverage of 25/50 to over $350 per month. A Georgia DUI for a 30 year old with a clean driving record is
equal to $4200.00 per year in automobile insurance premiums. DUIs are
usually reflected on your insurance for 3 years, so a Georgia DUI conviction can mean over $12,600.00 in
automobile insurance premiums over a 3 year period. Still think it is
cheaper to not hire a lawyer or to hire a plea lawyer for $1000.00? You
need a Georgia DUI lawyer who will find a way, any way, to beat your DUI!
