Angry Accident Questions and going to Court?

I crashed my RS about a month ago. This is what happend. I had just pulled away from a light and was getting ready to go into 3rd gear. From my right I caught a glimps of a truck traveling in a parking lot heading towards the road I was on. He was moving very fast and I looked to see if he was going to stop. In the 1/2 second or so this took the woman in front of me started to stop and turn to the left. When I realized the truck was going to stop I looked back to the road and had enough time to turn to right and clip the a$$end of the lady I was following. The Resque Squad arrived and we both refused treatment. The cop checked the box personal injury on the ticket witch ment I had to report to court for the violation. I was charged with "careless driving." The cop also forgot to check the box for the type of license I have. I have a CDL, he put that I have a regular operators permit. I feel this was an honest accident! I do feel that I was not driving carelessly!! I feel that I was driving in a defensive manner. Here are my questions to all you garage laywers.

1. Can I have the ticket dismissed because of the mistakes the officer made?

2. If I plead my case to the prosecutor before my court date do you think that would help?

3. Or should I just roll over and get ready to take it like a man?

I have never had to go to court so this is all new to me. Any help would help save my insurance costs from rising. Thanks.

Yea, defidently talk to an attorney. Especially since I've heard you can lose your CDL for getting a violation(not sure if its true, just what I heard, maybe you can correct me). If you can't loose the license though, you may just want to go to court, plea not guilty and defend yourself.

Have a Nice Day?

I rear ended someone a few years back - long story - but bottom line was it was both our faults. I was too close, he was being a jerk. Since I rear-ended the other guy the trooper told me he had to write me a ticket for failure to avoid a collision. I explained the situation in as much detail as possible to the judge and he was very direct about what to do - if I plead no contest I get probation for 6 months, no points, pay $100. After 6 months the ticket goes away - provided I didn't get any other tickets in that period - which I didn't. BTW I also had a clean license at the time.
