Does criminal case decision have any impact on the decision of civil case. We won civil case from both lower and district court.

Situation : Does criminal case decision have any impact on the decision of civil case. We won civil case from both lower and district court. Now, the civil case is again pending in hight court as the other party appealed in the high court. In the meantime, the decision of criminal case is very near but the problem is that I have not given my testimony in criminal case as I have come to abroad for further studies. Also, the case officer has not given his testimony in criminal case as he has settled in abroad as well. But, I have given my testimony in civil case and we won the civil case twice from lower court as well as from district court. Also, case officer has nothing to do with civil case. Now, we know that our criminal case is weak because I, as a complaintant have not given my testimony. So, my father and I are scared by thinking if the decision of criminal case from lower court will have any effect on the decision of civil case pending in the high court. Like, their lawyer can say to judge in high court that his client has been acquitted in criminal case etc etc. Can you please clear this doubt. Thanks for the help.
