I was driving in the snow and at the one-way signal road, I slipped into the car right before we make the right turn. I was prepared to brake way ahead but my car slipped just bumped to another car. The slipping distance was this much that I managed to honk to alert them. That car got maybe no/ or very little damage. I got a ticket for failed to stop within assured clear distance- Accident. How to fight this ticket? please help?
One option is to have your attorney address the ticket at a pre-trial conference that can be requested. Based on past practices in the Shelby Court, it is likely that a negotiated resolution can be obtained where you will get no ticket abstracted to your record. However, you may be required to pay a fine. If this is an acceptable compromise, then contact an attorney like myself who regularly practices in that court to hire them to work to get that result.
The response provided is intended to provide information only, and is not intended to be relied upon as legal advice. This is true for a number of reasons, including there being no attorney client relationship formed, not having complete information about the situation, not knowing the record of the person involved, not knowing the legal process thus far, and a host of other things. The way to get legal advice from which decisions can be made is to hire and consult with an attorney who is both knowledgeable in the legal area of concern and who knows the details of both the client and the case.
