Hi,
Last year I have involve in an accident where I collided with a motorcyclist who suddenly exit from a T-junction. Accident statement is taken by police traffic and I have provide them the witness contact number in case it is required. 
Few month later, I have called back to police station for more detail statement. According to the police sarjan, my first statement is rejected by court.
After 6 months of the 2nd statement, I have received a call from police to present myself at magistrates court for hearing/mention at a fixed date.
My questions are;
1. What is mean by hearing/mention? is the court is charging me for traffic offence?
2. In this accident, obviously is motorcyclist fault. Is it possible I will turn to be the defendant?
3. Shall I engage a lawyer as my preventative?  
4. What is the possible act and section to be use to charge the defendant?

Thank in advance and appreciate for any valuable reply.

Few month later
Should be 48 hours later. How did know if the motorcylist is still alive today?

my first statement is rejected by court.
Lu salah lor
Second statement no use.

In this accident, obviously is motorcyclist fault.
Really, you are the court Judge?

Post the first and second statement to the polis here on the forum out for us to see.

Detail out how the accident occurred, junction got traffic lights? The width of the junction. How far is the motorcycle from the kerb. Did you run away from the scene of the accident. Did you help up the fallen motorcylist/s. Got pillion rider? Did the motorcyclist had a heart attack while in hospital? Did he/she died later?

What is the possible act and section to be use to charge the defendant? 
Don't be lazy.. go back to same polis station and get the charge sheet. It is stated there..!!!
The polis is charging you, maybe not the motorcylist.

Was the motorcyclist hurt?
Most likely you will be charged with reckless driving and causing hurt.
Jail and fine is a possible penalty if convicted.
