What if I got a ticket? Can I still claim for my injuries?
If you’re in an accident, even if you’re cited, you could still make a claim for your injuries if the other driver also did something that was negligent. That just means the damages are gonna be calculated on a percentage basis. If you’re 50% at fault, you can only collect 50% of the damages. If you’re 60% at fault, you can only collect 40% of the damages. So, even if you were cited, and you were injured in a car accident, you can still file a claim and collect for damages.
