Do I still have a claim against another driver for my injuries sustained in a Florida car accident if I received a ticket?
In Florida, who a police officer issues a ticket to is not admissible in court. What matters is what the jury finds as to the at-fault party. If you’re involved in a car accident and you believe that the other party was at fault, you still have a claim and can file a lawsuit against the other party. It’s important to seek legal advice early in the case to document the crash scene and to preserve your rights.
