Even if a person is not convicted of a crime, a victim may still file a civil lawsuit. A criminal trials requires the State to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt. This standard of proof is higher than in a civil case. In a civil case, the plaintiff must prove his/her case by a preponderance of evidence, which is more likely than not. Proving a civil case by a preponderance of the evidence is a lower burden of proof than proving a criminal case beyond reasonable doubt.

If you have been seriously injured in an accident, you may be overwhelmed, confused and in pain. In addition, you may be wondering whether or not you really need an attorney. You are not required to have an attorney in order to obtain compensation; however, having an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer at your side can have a significant impact on the amount of compensation you will receive.
Statistically, an individual is half as likely to recover the compensation he or she is due without the assistance of an attorney. Many insurance companies will attempt to take advantage of those attempting to recover their own compensation. They may use tactics against you to deny your claim or delay your compensation until you are truly desperate. If you have any questions involving your claim or whether or not an attorney is needed, discuss your case with a knowledgeable law firm as soon as possible.

In a personal injury claim, the two most common forms of damages that you will be able to recover are called compensatory and punitive damages. Naturally, the type of damages that you can receive will depend entirely on the situation and the type of accident that you were injured in. Compensatory or actual damages are, as the name indicates, a payment made to compensate for the loss or damage that was suffered. If, for example, you were injured in a car accident and had to pay for a hospital stay and physical therapy as a result, you can be compensated for those payments. Punitive damages, on the other hand, are made in response to willful and wanton act. It is a punishment or deterrence to try to keep the individual or others from repeating the act. This payment will be made in addition to the compensatory damages. These types of damages are much more difficult to determine and can include fraud, malice, bad faith, recklessness, and wanton violence. This is a controversial topic in tort law and is often hard to nail down. In most cases, it will be difficult to receive punitive damages on top of actual damages as the attitude behind a particular action can be hard to prove. However, if you intend to seek such recompense, it is best to do so with the aid of an attorney who has experience with a wide range of personal injury suits.
When you try to reach a settlement for your personal injury case, you are essentially making an agreement before going to trial. This is done when one party, either the defendant or the insurance company, offers a certain monetary payment in hopes of avoiding going to court. Reaching a settlement can be beneficial in some situations. However, you must be wary of individuals and insurance companies that are trying to lowball you. If you are not sure if the settlement that is offered to you is appropriate, you should hire an attorney. A legal professional will be able to help you determine whether or not you would receive full coverage by accepting their offer.
