Should I hire an attorney for a Failure to maintain lane control ticket?

I was merging into a turn lane when a car swerved toward me and to avoid a collision I swerved off into what I thought was a grassy field. It actually had a cement drainage ditch that i hit and totaled my car and caused severe injury to my face, What happens if i just plead guilty and pay the ticket. Is there any type of driving class I can take to reduce the charge or help me in this situation.
