Will a Lawyer Take My Injury Case if I Got the Ticket?

If I Got the Ticket But I Did Not Cause the Crash, Do I Have a Case?This is a common question we get from callers. The police officer has to make a snap decision on sometimes weak information and they don't always get it right. Our law firm will review serious injury cases where you got the ticket for this very reason.

If you have a serious injury like a fracture or surgical case, it is worthwhile to dig deeper into the facts. If you are dealing with a simple whiplash case, then we are not going to be able to invest the time it takes to get to the truth.

What are some common situations where the injured person got the ticket but we can still help?

  • The crash involves a lane change where both parties swear to the opposite thing.
  • The crash involves a left turn across traffic
  • The accident involves two parties who each claim they had the light.
  • There is an eyewitness listed on the report.
  • The other vehicle is a company van or tractor trailer (they often have data recorders that can prove your case.)
That said, our firm is designed to handle real injuries and challenges so please do not call if you got the ticket and are just sore from the collision or went to a chiropractor. We will not accept those cases. We are here to fight for people with life-changing problems.

Client Reviews
My wife and I were hit by a tractor trailer in 2014. After extensive research online, we were deeply impressed with the various reviews we read on Google and Avvo and chose Chris to represent us. We could not have a made a better decision. Chris and his firm treated us like we were their only clients, soothed our worries, and instantly gained our trust. Chris settled both of our cases for more than we expected. James
A co-worker of my wife recommended Chris to us. At the very beginning Chris showed that he cared and his knowledge is priceless. Going through this process can be aggravating but Chris did a great job guiding me through this and was always available to answer my questions. Chris fought to get what I deserved even though at times I wanted to give up. Tracy
I want to express my deepest sense of gratitude and appreciation to Attorney Chris Simon & Attorney Chris Carsten, for all the hard work that they put forth into my case (car accident filed after being hit by drunk driver). Their attention to detail and professionalism far surpasses their firm's reputation. Because of their diligence and dedication to their craft, they were able to bring my case to a successful close, one that I could live with. You will not find a better team for your case. Should I have a need for their services again in the future, or know of anyone looking for a top notch Auto Accident Law Firm, I would not hesitate to recommend them!!!! Elle
Wow...Chris is a very good attorney. Me and my son was in a very bad car accident an I was clueless on how to handle the situation. It's very hard to find an attorney who allows you to contact them personally instead of you contacting their asst. I was told that I didn't have a case because the hosiptal put a lien on my acct. Chris prove different and I was able to file my case with the insurance company. The process was very quickly and Im glad I selected the right attorney..Thanks Chris A Car Accident client
Chris is a great lawyer and the most people friendly attorney I have ever delt with. He handled my case with great attention to detail and did so in a very short period of time. He is very consice, efficient, patient and understanding. He has a strong passion for what he does and he does it well. I recommend Chris Simon as legal representation for anyone who has suffreed damages or a loss at the negligence of others. He really cares about you and your case. A Car Accident client
