Criminal Compared to Civil Claims

A common problem of people that have been charged with a crime is that they may not only be facing a trial for their alleged crime, they may wind up facing a civil lawsuit or lawsuits as well.

Only a prosecuting attorney who acts on behalf of a federal, state, or local government can initiate a criminal lawsuit. If a person is found guilty of a crime, depending on the severity of the crime, they may face a prison sentence and/or fines, and in some cases, a revocation of licenses and/or security clearances.

A person who claims that they have been wronged by being physically or psychologically injured by another person or entity; or that their reputation has been damaged through defamation; or that their property and/or financial health has been damaged by a person or entity;  may be able to sue the alleged perpetrator of these types of things in a personal injury lawsuit. Damages in the way of monetary compensation are what is typically sought by the plaintiff in a personal injury claim, and/or replacement of property or rights to property.

It can be a daunting enough task to find one law firm to defend your rights, but if you are in the already difficult situation of facing criminal charges, a benefit of letting The Hallinan Law Firm help you are that we can help you with any civil claims against you as well and vice versa.
