Q
What if the police give me a ticket? Can I still bring a claim?

A

Yes. The police officer’s findings in the police report do not determine whether or not you can bring a claim. Remember, the police office was not there. He or she did not see the crash. They did not witness the crash. So, the police officer’s findings do not limit your rights in any way. Obviously, if the accident was your fault then you cannot bring a claim. And presumably, if you received a ticket at least someone-the police office-things you did something wrong. But the fact of the ticket alone does not prevent you from bringing your claim.
