Operating to Endanger/ Negligent or Reckless Operating of a Motor Vehicle

Massachusetts Motor Vehicle Attorney

Boston Operating to Endanger Lawyer

The charge of Operating to Endanger (also known as Negligent Operating or Reckless Operation of a Motor Vehicle), can arise in various contexts. You may have been involved in an accident, or observed by a police officer to have been driving in an erratic manner. In any event, a conviction for this charge carries up to 2 years in jail and a mandatory 60 day to 1 year license loss. It may also have collateral consequences with the RMV; many people are also issued an "immediate threat" notice along with this criminal charge, which leads to an INDEFINITE suspension of the person's license when the RMV has reason to believe that the person is a threat to the public's safety. Depending on your driving history, a negligent operation charge may also have additional license loss consequences for cumulative violations, and a conviction will certainly jack up your insurance rates. If you've been charged with this crime, ut is important to discuss your specific circumstances and options with a criminal defense attorney before you are arraigned in court.

Client Reviews
"Ben Urbelis recently represented me in an OUI case in which I had crashed my car. I honestly did not believe I had any chance of beating it, but fortunately for me Ben was outstanding and all charges were dropped. In my first hearing he was calm, assertive and straight to the point. I was extremely impressed and satisfied. I left my hearing feeling confident that I had made the right choice of hiring him. I am positive I would have lost this case and walked away with an OUI if I hadn't. I am very happy with how he handled my case and how reassured I felt having him as my lawyer." MC
"When I found myself charged with my 3rd DUI I was certain without a doubt that I was facing 6 months to 2 1/2 years in state prison. I can’t believe you were able to guide me calmly through the whole nerve wracking process, never sugar coating anything, staying honest and always keeping me informed the whole time. I still can’t believe that in the end you pulled off a miracle to avoidany jail time. I would recommend you to anyone in the same situation. Thank you so much. You saved me.” JL
