Last July 1, 2017 I was involved in an accident where a speeding motorcycle hit my vehicle (also a motorcycle) from behind which resulted to multiple bruises and a broken collar bone. We have filed a case and it has been already approved by the prosecutor (no subpoenas from prosecutor’s office. They called it as direct filing.) And now the case is already in court and waiting for the case trial.

My questions are:
1. Do we need to seek a lawyer for the case or will the prosecutor stand as our lawyer?
2. The case filed was approved by the prosecutor, does that mean that the prosecutor finds the defendant probably guilty?
3. The trail court personnel told me that the trial may take place around October 2017 due to high volume of cases. Is this acceptable or is there a turn around time for a case to be scheduled? I mean is this still in the standard procedure that it would take more than 2 months for the trial to be made?
4. Lastly, what would be the sanctions if the defendant would be found guilty of “reckless imprudence resulting to Damage of property and Physical damages?

1. The prosecutor will be your lawyer.

2. No. Just the existence of probable cause. Guilt is must be proven beyond reasonable double.

3. There are always recommended periods, but of course, they are only recommended.

4. The court will decide. It may merely be a fine and/or imprisonment.

Seek services of an independent counsel when dealing with legal issues. Legal issues need scrutiny and attention.
