Understanding what happens when you get into an accident and you receive a traffic ticket. The first concern is that those parties involved are not injured from the accident. Then most people will then begin assessing the damage to the vehicles. When an accident happens, depending on if the police are involved, the drivers of either vehicle could receive a traffic citation in addition to having to deal with the accident. Daily, we receive calls from clients stating that they have been involved an accident and have received a traffic citation from an officer. Of course not all accidents result in an issuance of a traffic ticket. There are multiple citations that can be given at the time of an accident. Speed too fast for conditions, improper lane change, failure to yield, failure to stop, following too close and negligent driving are just some of the more common citations given as a result of an accident.
How We Can Help
Rick can help you with the citation that is given at the time of the accident. It is important to understand, Rick would be fighting the traffic citation given, not the accident. The accident occurred, and the end result would be the accident showing on your driving record. The motor vehicle record is separated in 3 sections; infractions, accidents, and administrative actions. The citation given at the time of the accident would appear in the infractions section of the motor vehicle record, and the accident would appear in the accident section of the motor vehicle record. Once hired, Rick would go to court for you and help fight the traffic ticket in court and try to keep the citation off of the infraction section of your driving record.
If you have any questions at any time throughout the process you can always call and ask the office - we are more than happy to help.
Rick fights traffic tickets everyday in multiple courts. He has developed relationships with judges, prosecutors, and court clerks. He always does his best to try to protect your driving record.
