I am a govt employee and I am only earner in my family. I was driving on NHW and met with and accident as my car collided with an other car and my car was on wrong side when collided. One of the passenger in opposite car suffered injury (fracture) in her arm. Police loged FIR against me and booked me under section 279/337 and 338. I told my lawyer that I will pay fine but my advocate told me that I am govt employee and if I get convicted I will lose my job and conviction will be entered in my character book and I should go for trial instead of confession. Iam too much upset and mentally depressed about this. Kindly suggest me if I confess and pay fine shall I remain in govt job or Not. And does my conviction effect my charater book. Shall govt terminate me from givt job. Kindly suggest.

Is not there any legal option to defend and save the job. As it is just an accident and not intentional to cause hurt to ant one. Kindly suggest me the way to protect my job.
