The Criminal and Civil Trials after a Drunk Driving Accident

The Criminal and Civil Trials after a Drunk Driving Accident

One important aspect of a drinking and driving injury case that is often overlooked is the need to keep up with the criminal prosecution defendant. One thing that can really affect evidence in a civil trial is if the criminal defendant pleads no contest to the DWI charge. If they do, you are not allowed to present evidence of that plea at trial in the civil proceeding. So you always want to make sure that you maintain close contact with the prosecutor and invoke your criminal victim rights and make sure that any plea deal is contingent upon a guilty plea as opposed to a no contest plea.  

Where Zinda Law Group Practices:

We were founded in Texas and have a team of Austin personal injury lawyers as well as attorneys in Dallas and Fort Worth.

 As we’ve grown we expanded out west to El Paso, Texas subsequently into Arizona adding Tucson Personal Injury Lawyers to the firm, as well as adding offices in Colorado including Denver Personal Injury Lawyers and the surrounding cities such as Colorado Springs.

Types of Cases We Handle:

We also have a team of attorneys that have experience serious injury cases such as car accidents, wrongful death and truck accidents.   We also have experience handling more complex cases such as gas explosions and drug injury cases, such as the Taxotere® Lawsuits.
