What to do next?
I was involved in a auto accident in September 2016 while driving a company vehicle, the vehicle I was in flipped and overturn. I gave my statement on what happened between myself, 18 wheeler & another driver. The police officer cited me for improper lane change. I have been to court the court wants a restitution of property letter also I filed a continuance for another court date the police nor other party was present so I could have gotten it dismissed possibly if my legal rep was present also my license is in jeopardy of being put on hold.
