Recovering Damages When Cited in a Car Accident

Often more than one driver will be cited in a car accident. If you are cited for an accident, can you still be compensated for injuries or property damage? The answer to that question depends on a couple of different things.

What was the Citation for?

Many people get cited for not having insurance, not wearing a seat belt, or not having a driver’s license. These types of citations are not directly related to the accident and shouldn’t prevent you from pursuing a claim for injury or damages.

Who Caused the Accident?

Sometimes it does not matter what you were cited for or charged with at the accident scene. Depending on the circumstances, it may be clear that another driver is at fault, even though you also were cited. There are both statutes and court case law that guides who was at fault in a car accident.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"We tried to go through the insurance company ourselves, but they basically just laughed at us. So I got in touch with The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto. The insurance company's attitude really changed, and within a week we had our car replaced and rehabilitation going for my wife. The Lawyers of Brown & Roberto stuck in there and fought for us." J. Felver

I would not have been able to handle the paper work or things that would have been required to stand in a court of law myself. They got the most that I could have gotten for any injury that I had. I was more than pleased with the settlement. They handled my case promptly and very professionally." D. Blakeman
