Just because you were ticketed for the accident does not mean that you can not sue the other driver. Tickets are written by the officer who is called to the accident scene. That officer did not see the accident happen and so all he can go on is what he is told by the drivers and witnesses. Police Officers are human and they do make mistakes. If you received a ticket for the wreck and it was not your fault, you should contest the ticket. Even if the ticket is not dismissed, you can still bring a lawsuit if it can be shown that the other driver was at fault. If the Holton law firm represents you, we will talk to all the witnesses and thoroughly investigate the accident on your behalf.
