In a drunk driving case the criminal case is just the beginning.
A civil lawsuit against a drunk driver is separate and distinct from a criminal case. Many times victims of drunk drivers suffer catastrophic injuries. A civil lawsuit helps the victim of a drunk driver, or their family, recover costs of medical treatment, lost wages and other non-economic damages such as pain and suffering. While the criminal system works to ensure the public is safe, the civil justice system seeks to compensate the victim. Compensation for the victim may come from the driver or the person or entity that served alcohol to the driver.
