I have to attend court on the x . I was involved in a road traffic accident in x, I was in hospital 20 mins after the accident and my girlfriend was not well at all then two police officers came and ask to speak to me.
They asked me if at any point I was not fully concentrating, I said for a split second whilst I pressed a button on my radio way before the accident, this was definately not the cause of the crash, the other driver was reversing down my side of the road and then swung out.
Now the truth is I actually didn’t press a button I was just scarred and did not know what to say, I was 17 at the time. I was also under caution, not really understanding what that meant. I was more concerned about my girlfriend.
Everything I have ever done and worked for is to be a x if I get a fine I will not be able to go in for 5 years and if I get points they will not be happy. Should I plead guilty or not? My career is in the balance.
This sounds like it was a nasty accident and that could mean that you are at risk in relation to a possible ban. Have you got any points already? If so, how many?
We maybe able to argue that it was not appropriate to ask you questions when you were at the hospital.
Have you got any statements from witnesses attached to the court summons? Is there any chance you could scan them to me?
I don’t know enough about what has actually happened to be able to advise you on how you should plead.
