  Facing difficulties:

  The perpetrator is unable to compensate and suffers from illness

  Li Yan got the accident certificate from the traffic police department and learned about the perpetrators.

Li Yan told the Red Star reporter that Luo bears the primary responsibility and his father bears the secondary responsibility.

According to the compensation standard, the other party should compensate more than 140,000 yuan.

But she also learned from the police that the 67-year-old Luo had a poor family and had an adopted daughter who was unable to compensate and suffered from various diseases.

  On the afternoon of September 23, the reporter found Luo's rental house on the outskirts of the city about 1 kilometer from the scene of the accident.

This is an old brick house, and there are 5 other tenants who rent together in this house.

According to his neighbor, Luo usually lives by growing vegetables.

He opened up two plots of land, one behind the rented house and the other a few kilometers away with a foster daughter's house.

  On the afternoon of September 23, Luo and his wife worked in the grounds of the foster daughter's house and did not go home until about 6 in the evening.

Luo told reporters that he used to be a stonemason and has started to grow vegetables for sale in the past two years. The two plots of land together are less than one acre.

On the day of the incident, he happened to pick more than 10 kilograms of vegetables from the land of his adopted daughter's family, and put them on the back rack of the bicycle to take them back to the city for sale. As a result, there was an accident on the road.

  Luo said that the police took him to the hospital for a physical examination on the second day of the incident and confirmed that he was ill.

  Family members of the victim:

  At least a formal apology

  Luo's family situation makes Li Yan feel helpless.

But what made her even more angry was that after the accident, Luo never contacted to express apology.

  Luo also confirmed to reporters that he saw Li Yan and his sister during the police coordination process. The other party was emotional at the time, and he did not apologize. Afterwards, he was worried that he would be "entangled" by the other party and did not dare to contact the other party.

Li Yan told reporters, knowing Luo's situation Later, she has consulted with a lawyer, ready to go through judicial channels to "seeking justice."

  "Maybe this will give my father an explanation." Li Yan said that this is the only thing she can do at present.


  The perpetrator is unable to compensate

  Available to court

  Apply for judicial assistance

  Lawyer Feng Jun, a member of the Rights Protection Committee of the Sichuan Lawyers Association, said that the legal process should be considered from two perspectives in this case. The first is the criminal part. Although the perpetrator cannot be imprisoned temporarily due to physical reasons, in the procedures stipulated in the Criminal Procedure Law of our country, When investigating criminal suspects, it is not a prerequisite for criminal suspects to be held in prison. Therefore, public security organs can still exercise investigative powers in this case, and prosecutors can also review and prosecute them in accordance with the law. It can also be tried in accordance with the law.

  Second, with regard to the civil part, the victim’s close relatives can file a criminal incidental civil lawsuit. In legal procedures, they can make a complete claim within the scope of the civil claim, and the court can determine an accurate compensation amount.

As for whether the perpetrator has the ability to make actual compensation, Feng Jun said that whether the perpetrator has the actual ability to compensate and how much compensation should be borne are two different legal concepts that can be completely separated.

In this case, the victim’s close relatives should still claim it in accordance with the law.

If the perpetrator is indeed unable to compensate due to limited conditions, the victim’s close relatives can also apply to the court for judicial assistance.

  Li Wei, a lawyer from Sichuan Henghexin Law Firm, also said that if a crime is suspected, the victim should report to the police and the police should accept it in accordance with the law. If there is a crime, the criminal investigation procedure should be initiated immediately.

As for whether the suspect can be put in prison due to physical reasons, he must go through legal procedures and seek medical treatment outside the prison, which must reflect the seriousness of the law.
