This Davis & Gelshenen LLP client, a passenger in a friend’s vehicle, sustained serious injuries when her driver collided with another vehicle. The insurance company made a “final offer” that Attorney Daniel Davis and his client found unacceptable. Attorney Davis filed a lawsuit, fought vigorously for his client, and ultimately recovered $22,000 more for the client than the previous “final offer.” Attorneys at Davis & Gelshenen LLP don’t just settle for what the insurance company is willing to pay. At Davis & Gelshenen LLP, the attorneys fight for what they believe is fair compensation for the pain, suffering, and disability their clients endure.

If you are involved in an automobile accident and receive a citation, but you don’t believe the accident was your fault should you contest the ticket?
Ultimately, the decision is yours. Some questions to consider are: What are your chances of success if you do contest it? How much will it cost you? Will you lose your driving privileges? A lawyer can help you assess your situation.
If you decide to contest the citation, you are entitled to a trial. If the case is to be resolved in municipal court, a judge will decide the matter. If the case is to be resolved in circuit court, a judge also will resolve it, unless you immediately request a jury and pay the required fee.
If you decide that you do not want to contest the citation, and if someone else’s person or property was injured as a result of the accident, you should plead “no contest” rather than “guilty.” A no contest plea, unlike a guilty plea, can’t be used against you later in a lawsuit.
