Civil laws are not punishable by imprisonment. These actions are typically commenced when one party believes he or she is owed compensation due to the actions of another. In civil actions, a person may be responsible for actions even though he or she did not intend the consequences. For example, civil law makes you financially responsible for a car accident that you caused, but didn't intend. Let the Law Offices of Ian L.
