Do prosecutors represent people injured by drunk drivers? We ask Arizona Attorney Ryan Skiver in this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
Actually, the DA or the prosecutor works for the state, so they represent the state in criminal matters, which is separate and distinct from civil matters, where you as the victim have the ability to go and recover for your damages. There may be a small aspect of restitution in the criminal case, but that Prosecutor or District Attorney does not actually represent you. That's why it's important to get a personal injury attorney involved so that they can represent you and actually can help you with the restitution aspect of the criminal case while pursuing a civil case for all of the damages that you've suffered.
