Traffic Tickets for Car Accidents

I have been often asked- if I have received a traffic ticket for causing a car accident, does that mean I can’t pursue money for the injuries I sustained? The answer is no. If you receive a traffic ticket, it is not dispositive of who is at fault and you can still collect money for your injuries. Additionally, Florida is a comparative negligence state, meaning if you are 20% at fault, you can still collect 80% of the amount of damages your case is worth. It is not up to a police officer to determine fault in a negligence case. If you have been involved in an accident and believe the other party is also at fault even if you have received a ticket, call the Law Office of Ken M.
