Sometimes the prosecution is not a favorable result for family. Even if there was no prosecution, crime victims can still file civil lawsuits against offenders and other responsible parties. Unlike the criminal process, the civil system does not attempt to determine an offender’s guilt or innocence.
Civil courts try to determine whether an offender or a third party is liable for the injuries sustained as a result of the crime. If defendants are found civilly liable, courts can demand compensation for their monetary damages that they caused. While money awarded in civil lawsuits can never fully compensate a victim for the loss of a loved one, it can be a valuable start to help crime victims rebuild their lives.
