Can I still file a bicycle accident lawsuit even if I violated the law or received a ticket?
The fact that you received a ticket isn’t admissible in a civilized sense and many times a police officer doesn’t have the benefit of speaking to everybody. They’ll talk to one person and determine fault based on the testimony of one witness.
Our job is to bring all the facts to light and sometimes we can capture a video or speak to other witnesses who may have a different account of how the accident happened. The fact that you received a ticket is not always decisive or determinative so the answer to that question is yes, you still can bring a claim.
