Victims of motorcycle accidents may want to take legal action

Criminal courts are tasked with adjudicating cases in which a person is accused of breaking the law. The court must consider the evidence presented and hand down a verdict, and if a person is found guilty, the court will impose a sentence that it feels suits the crime. Just because a criminal court has sentenced an offender does not mean a victim will be compensated, so victims of some crimes, like motorcycle accidents caused by an intoxicated driver, have the option to file a civil suit against the responsible party.
