At Fault Car Accidents in Tampa

What to Do If You Receive a Traffic Citation for an Accident

Being involved in a car accident can be a very nerve-raking experience, especially if you receive a ticket as a result of the car accident. It is important to keep in mind that receiving a ticket or citation in a car accident is inadmissible in a civil trial unless you happened to plead guilty in traffic court.

Fortunately, even if you received a ticket in a car accident, a civil jury does have the capability to hear evidence in regards to liability in a trial. That way, the ultimate decision as to who was actually at fault in a car accident can be determined by the judge.

If you received a ticket or were cited at the scene of an accident, then you have a more difficult road ahead of you than if you didn't received a ticket in the first place. However, it is not a hopeless situation by any means. This is where a Tampa at-fault car accident attorney from Smith & Stallworth, Attorneys at Law steps in.
