I was injured in a car wreck. Does it matter if the other driver received a traffic citation?
Most auto collisions are caused by the inattention of one or more of the drivers involved. The responsible driver is usually cited by the investigating officer. The citation shows what the responsible driver did to cause the collision. It is important evidence showing who is responsible for the collision and why they are responsible. You and your lawyer should review the citation.
Also, the responsible driver will have to address the citation in court. The responsible driver may pay the citation, go to court himself, or hire a lawyer to go to court for him. It is also important to review the court file for the citation. It may contain an admission of liability or other evidence that is helpful to your auto injury claim.
