Thank you for using Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you. There actually is no law that says a citation is null and void if filled out incorrectly. While it's true that a court could dismiss the case, for minor "scrivener" errors, it's not likely because the error was overall minor, and more importantly, because the officer will testify as to the accident, and what type of vehicle you were driving. I can tell you I've only ever seen one case dismissed for an accident report being written incorrectly, and there were numerous errors in it - the vehicle description, time of day, driver names, etc.I would also agree with your lawyer that because you were under the influence of medication at the time of the accident which appears to be the direct cause, that you are lucky not to have been charged with a DUI. I understand that you certainly didn't intend to mix the two medications together, but that is irrelevant; no intent is required to be charged with a DUI.If you need clarification or additional information, please REPLY and I'll be happy to assist you. Thank you.
