Bad intent not mandatory to file California liability claim

 Bad intent not mandatory to file California liability claim

Many California residents believe a liability lawsuit may be filed only against defendants charged with or convicted of crimes. Certainly, there are many instances when a defendant faces criminal and civil charges, but that's not always the case. Negligence is not always a crime, but evidence of a crime can be used to establish negligence.

Damages are frequently the end result of a liability trial. The compensation covers losses experienced by an injured victim or a family after the accidental death of a loved one. Civil trial defendants are not imprisoned or put on probation. They are held accountable financially for failing to consider the safety of another person.
