Traffic Violations Lawsuit Claims Lawyer

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, law enforcement is usually called to the scene, especially if there is an injury. If a citation for a traffic violation is issued to any of the drivers involved in the crash, it can greatly affect who is considered at-fault for the accident. Understanding how a traffic violation can impact an injury accident claim is important, especially if you were the one injured in the accident.

How Traffic Citations Affect Injury Accident Claims

Accidents are often caused by a traffic violation. Speeding, following too closely, drunk driving, failure to stop and other violations are directly linked to accidents. When a crash between two or more vehicles occurs and there are injuries, any driver that is given a citation could face difficulty disproving fault. This can be good and bad. It is good if the at-fault driver receives a citation as it can help you build your case for their liability. If you received a citation, it could impact your claim that another driver was at-fault in your injury accident.

If you receive a citation for a traffic violation in an accident where you were injured, it is important to fight your ticket if you want to file a claim against another driver. This can help in proving their liability for the accident. On the other hand, if the other driver received the ticket or they violated traffic laws, it is helpful in proving liability or negligence. If the driver was driving under the influence, speeding, ran a red light or violated other traffic laws, it may be beneficial to your injury accident claim.

What Our Happy Clients say

Based on 19 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Sanders was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Sanders to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Alisabeth S.

Ligori & Sanders is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Sanders.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
