What is the name of your state? Tennessee
I was recently involved in an accident which was not my fault; however, the officer did not agree. I was hit by a car when its driver ran a red light. Of course he says that I was the one who ran the red light. It was my word against his, and unfortunately the officer believed him. I had two small children with me, therefore there is no way I would run a red light across five lanes of traffic. He was driving his fathers newer model pickup truck, this gives him reason to lie about who ran the light. There were no witnesses, but I still received a ticket for failure to yield. I am frustrated and wonder why I was the one to get the ticket, there was not ANY evidence that pointed me out to be the guilty party. I intend to fight this ticket in court. My question is, do I really need to hire an attorney or do I have a good chance at having the ticket dropped without one?
