What A Personal Injury Case Client May Want to Know About Criminal Charges

Sometimes in a personal injury case, the parties responsible for the injuries and losses may  be charged with a crime.

Criminal charges faced by at-fault parties in personal injury cases include a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges ranging from DWI to drug possession to theft.

A criminal defense lawyer will look for the slightest weakness in the prosecutor’s case and bring that to light. If there is the slightest question of improper police procedure, the attorney will seek to have the evidence suppressed or to have the entire case dismissed. If the attorney decides that taking the case to jury trial is the best strategy, she will advise her client of that and then prepare to be ready to present a thorough defense on the client’s behalf.
