The Difference Between Civil and Criminal Liability
Consequences for an action that leads to an injury or property damage can range between civil and criminal. At the Law Office of Todd W. Burris, we sometimes meet with clients who are curious about the difference between civil and criminal liability.
While these two forms of liability sometimes overlap in personal injury cases, it is important to have a strong understanding of what they are and how they differ. We’ll explore the meanings of civil and criminal liability below as well as highlight their differences, but we understand that not every question can be addressed in a single article. If you still have questions after reading the following, or if we failed to touch on your specific concern, contact us to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss this matter.
