Will individuals in personal injury lawsuits face criminal charges?

When individuals file personal injury lawsuits, they often wonder whether the defendants will face criminal charges. In most cases, the answer is no.

Personal injury lawsuits are only concerned with civil law. While the defendant may be punished with punitive damages, that defendant will not face criminal charges in regard to the civil case.

However, in some cases, an individual may face separate criminal charges. While the criminal case is generally not related to the civil case, the defendant could be convicted of a crime as well.

If you or anyone you know is considering filing a personal injury lawsuit, contact the Appleton car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874.
