gud pm,

I need to know if it is legal for me to file a case of reckless imprudence resulting to damage to property and physical injury even though the car is registered under my wife's name and it is she who got injured during the accident.

The accident happened to us last year wherein a pickup car hit us in the right side of the front passenger side, where my wife is sitting. The accident put wife in the hospital for a week and caused damage to our car amounting to more than P90,000.00.

According to the lawyer of the other party, i am a mere witness because the vehicle that im driving is not registered in my name and that it is my wife who got injured and not me.

Please advise.

Thanks

Ask your wife to file a complaint with the Prosecutor's Office of the City where the accident happen, you as witness.

Anyway, yes you can file a criminal case against the other party.

Sir, thanks for the reply. This is the question that has been bothering me since the day i received the petition from the respondent asking the Muntinlupa DOJ to drop the case due to the fact that the vehicle is not registered in my name and it is not I who got injured during the accident.

Muntinlupa denied their petition but the respondent filed another petition for review and deferment of arraignment in Manila DOJ for the same reasons. Hopefully Manila DOJ will be fair in their judgement and will rule in my favor. The other worry that i have is that the respondent has a relative working as court stenographer in Manila RTC that has been appearing everytime we have a hearing. Since the time of the accident, this relative of the respondent has been bragging in front of us that she works for the Supreme court and whatever case i file will just end up in the garbage. Well, I hope Manila DOJ will not be influenced by the so called Supreme Court employee.
