I was in a traffic accident last November 14th. I was driving to work early in the am around 5:30 and it was dark. I did not see a motorcycle driver and I sideswiped him. I looked in all three directions and did not see a headlamp or anything before turning on a red light-this is legal in CO. I was given a ticket for "careless driving causing bodily injury". The gentleman had a broken toe and road rash and was back at work the next day. My insurance company has paid his cycle and are now working with his lawyer to settle his medical bills. I went to my hearing this past Monday and the DA would not even really speak to me, he said he had to speak to the gentleman I hit due to the Victim's Advocacy Law. I was rescheduled for April 7th. The paper work I received stated that the maximum penalty I could receive would be 1000.00 fine and a year in jail. I know I was at fault but this was a true, honest accident. I am 64 yrs old have only received one driving ticket in my time for speeding about 10-12 yrs ago. I have never been involved with the law until now. I can handle the fine but thinking about going to jail is causing me immense fear. What are the chances do you think that I will be jailed?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Lakewood, ColoradoJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes, I went to court this past Monday the 13th of Feb but it was rescheduled to the 7th of April so that the DA may speak with the gentleman I hit.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No Pearl thank you so much!
