A recent car accident killed a 21-year-old man and seriously injured another. Authorities think alcohol may have played a role in the accident. The crash occurred west of Via Corral on Canyon Rim. When accidents like this are caused by drinking and driving, police and prosecutors usually try to convict the responsible driver. As a car accident lawyer, we want you to know that a conviction in criminal court may bring the family of a victim a sense of justice. However, loved ones can also file a suit in civil court. While this does not bring a relative back, it can provide the family with compensation for funeral expenses as well as pain and suffering.
