Look at the ticket and the regulation or law that you are charged with. Then read the actual law to see if you actually violated it.
You should contest the ticket if you are not guilty of the charge. If you are, then the honest thing to do is to pay.
If you are satisfied that you are not injured, you might contest the ticket and accept the checks. You should decide what you want to do before talking with a lawyer. A lawyer is there to sue. Some will tell you if you have a weak case and refuse to take it. If you are satisfied with the checks, there is no need to sue. Suing is when you have been harmed (financially or otherwise) because the other side broke laws or regulations. (For example, if a store or accountant was rude, you shouldn't sue because nothing illegal was done).
I know of a case where the police did not write the trucker a ticket because he said the trucker would lose his job. The trucker hit and run. He claimed he didn't know an accident occurred but also provided detailed, self-serving testimony to the police which would have been impossible if he didn't know a collision had taken place.
