Give Yourself the Best Chance in Safety Hearings
If you are a driver in New York or New Jersey who needs to appear at a safety hearing, Martin A. Kron & Associates, P.C. is uniquely positioned to give you the best chance at a favorable outcome. These hearings are held in civil court in front of an administrative law judge (ALJ) along with you, your attorney, and a police officer. Our founding attorney was a traffic court judge in New York City, so we know exactly what it takes to create a persuasive argument.
Types of Safety Hearings
You may be required to appear at a safety hearing for many different reasons.
These could include:
- Fatal accidents: If you were a driver involved in a fatal accident, even if you were not charged with a traffic or criminal violation, you will have to attend a hearing. The judge has the discretion to suspend/revoke your license either temporarily or indefinitely based on the circumstances of your case.
- Suspicion of fraud: If you write a bad check to the DMV/MVC, make false statements on an application, or the DMV determines through facial recognition software that you applied for a license under a different name, it can trigger the suspicion of fraud. You may be required to attend a hearing to determine if your driving privileges should be suspended or revoked, or if criminal charges should be brought against you.
- Refusing to submit to a breath test: If you are pulled over for drunk driving and refuse to submit to a breath test, you face automatic license suspension and will be required to attend a safety hearing. It is an opportunity to determine whether police conducted themselves properly to try to administer the test.
- Three serious traffic violations in 25 years: In New York, if you are convicted of three or more serious traffic violations in 25 consecutive years, your license can be suspended for five years. You are entitled to a hearing within 60-days of your denial letter. If you are unsuccessful at your hearing, we can help you attempt to reopen a prior case and vacate a conviction.
