Usual process... but what do you mean by "such as this"?Postboxer wrote:I assume there's no way the driver can dispute they were at fault for causing the accident, though I have no idea what amount, if any, the family can claim.
There are two drivers. But if a claim is made against either I wouldn't make that assumption. The fact of conviction can be offered in evidence in a civil action but it doesn't make the outcome automatic.
I forgot about the complication of there being two drivers in this case. I meant in a case where a driver claims they didn't see a cyclist they crashed into from behind, sadly killing them, then the criminal court process fails and the driver is found not guilty, can the victim's family claim against the driver's insurance and what damages can they claim for?
