Do I have a case even though I got a ticket?
Author: Attorney Dennis Schaefer
The simple answer is very possibly. Police officers are not always right. For many reasons, they often make mistakes. Remember they were not at the accident scene. They did not see the accident happen. However, you did, and should know more about the events than someone who wasn’t there.
Unfortunately, with the state of the insurance industry you must immediately proceed on your case. If you wait for a judicial determination as to fault, without getting medical treatment for injuries you sustained in the accident, it will be too late to proceed. Any type of delay simply gives the insurance companies the opportunity to take the position that any delay in treatment was because there was little or no injury.
It is understandable to be cautious about running up medical bills without knowing if you have a case. That is the exact reason you need to call Dell & Schaefer. We can evaluate the case and give a good solid basis for our evaluation, so you can proceed with confidence in the outcome of the case.
Our experience has led us to conclude that many victims of accidents do not pursue their claims because they have been given a ticket. The victim feels that once they have received the ticket they have no chance to succeed. We are here to tell you that is not true. Call us and let us help you fully understand your rights and the law.
