DUI Accident Lawyer – Alexandria, VA

The legal systems in the U.S. are divided into the civil justice system and the justice system. Because these systems are distinct, the outcome of a case heard in one system almost never affects the outcome of a case concerning the same underlying matter heard in the other. Meaning, whether the driver who struck you has or has not been held accountable for their actions in a criminal context is irrelevant as to whether you may be able to successfully hold them accountable in civil court.

In fact, it is often much easier to hold a drunk driver accountable for causing harm via a personal injury lawsuit then it is for a prosecutor to secure a criminal conviction again someone who has committed a DUI offense. This is because the standard of proof that must be met in civil court is lower than the standard of proof that must be met in criminal court.
