How the Criminal & Civil Case Combine
If the drunk driver who struck you was charged with DUI but was acquitted or dismissed, that doesn’t mean you’ll automatically lose your case. Criminal cases have a different burden of proof from civil injury cases, and you’ll still have an opportunity to hold them accountable in court. In fact, a case that might have failed to secure a conviction can still secure sizable compensation in civil court.
Even if not convicted, evidence gathered during your defendant’s criminal case might serve as a powerful tool to secure a settlement—money that could be used to provide you with medical care, compensation for lost wages and property damage, or even pain and suffering. With enough evidence, juries are far more likely to rule on behalf of a drunk driving victim than a reckless driver.
Our point is this: Don’t assume the odds of your case until you speak with an attorney. There are myriad tactic and strategies our car accident lawyers have used to secure jury verdicts and settlements. Even if the driver who struck you doesn’t have money, the insurance company is the one who will have to answer for the damage he or she caused. Once we hear the circumstances of your injuries, we’ll be able to explain the odds of your case winning in court—and what our Harrisburg car accident lawyers can do to help.
