Role of Illegal Behavior

Being found guilty of illegally behavior does not always affect cases of wrongful death car accidents in Toronto. If someone goes to a trial under the Highway Traffic Act and they are found guilty, they cannot argue in the lawsuit against them that they were not at least partially at fault. Being found guilty under the criminal standard means that person is at least partially at fault on the civil standard. Being found at fault or being convicted criminally is something could speak to the issue of negligence in the at-fault portion of the claim.

It does not necessarily change the damages portion of the claim. If they are still at fault for the facts leading up to the accident in a drunk driving case, the inebriation is the unfortunate fact and they may get jail time because of that offense. However, that does not necessarily affect the civil case as directly with respect to the damages, it just means that somebody has both criminal and civil consequences to their actions but it does not necessarily impact the value of the case in a sense.
