Do I need a personal injury attorney after being injured and falsely accused in an accident? 3 Answers as of April 15, 2011If I am falsely accused with causing a car collision can I defend myself? A police officer says it is my fault that we crashed, but he was the one who hit me. I had to be taken to the hospital. What can I do?

You will need an attorney. Maybe two. You can anticipate criminal charges based on the fact that you are alleged by the officer to have hit him. That could be an assault on a peace officer with a deadly weapon (the vehicle), especially if he was in uniform and a marked unit.
