A lot of people involved in car accidents do not get cited with a ticket even though they are at fault. The fact that the other party did not get a ticket does not mean you do not have a claim against them.
Many times the police officer cannot make a determination of fault because of conflicting stories between the two parties, and there is not enough physical evidence of car damage to show who was clearly at fault. Usually, vehicle one in a police report is the party who is more likely at fault.
If you have any questions about whether or not you can still pursue a claim even though someone got a ticket, please call Schwartz Law Firm today. We have investigative techniques that can establish fault if need be, and we can take statements from eyewitnesses. And we can also request the body camera footage that the police officer may wear.
Do not feel you are suppressed by not having enough information to pursue a claim. If an insurance company offers you a small settlement, it probably is not enough to take, and you should call us today if you have any questions. Schwartz Law Firm accepts cases in Louisiana, Baton Rouge, Metairie, and New Orleans!
