VIDEO: If I’m Cited in an Accident, Can I Still Sue?
It is a common misconception that if you receive a ticket after an auto accident you can’t sue, but this is simply not the case. If an officer was not an actual witness to the accident, it is up to a jury to determine who was actually at fault.
When involved in a car accident, the steps you take after an accident can prove to be crucial to your case. Make sure to gather as much evidence as possible, whether it be photos or witness statements, as each little piece of evidence can be detrimental in determining fault.
