Q: I was in a single car motor vehicle accident where I hit my head. I was ticketed for failure to report an accident.
How is that possible? I don't remember even getting out of the car and by the time I came to my senses a passerby had already reported the accident. I had a head injury, it's not like I deliberately tried to hide the fact their was a wreck.
It seems you may have suffered a brain injury and short-term memory loss. There are times where you may have been given a citation; however, the OTHER DRIVER was at fault for causing the wreck. Additionally, your injuries may be more significant than just what you felt at the time of the wreck.
You should reach out to an experienced attorney who can help guide you through this situation.
