Civil Litigation Links

Unlike criminal prosecution, civil action is a lawsuit brought to court in order to receive damages or to recover a right. Civil litigation usually involves disputes of private law issues between individuals, businesses or non-profit organizations. At the same time, civil litigations can entail public law issues.

If you are entering a civil litigation lawsuit, contact one of our civil litigation attorney in your area.

A civil litigation lawsuit is started as soon as the plaintiff files a written complaint. The defendant will then respond and deliver a written “answer” to the complaint in order to make any kind of plea.

After the answer is filed the parties engage in the “discovery” process. At this point the parties will learn about all the facts involved in the case in order to prepare the trial. The discovery process includes witness questioning and answering, the exchange of documents, as well as written questions, known as “interrogations.

Possible civil litigation lawsuits include, but are not limited to:

· Tort claim

· Worker’s compensation

· Employee grievance appeals

· Employee discrimination claims

· General civil claims

· Miscellaneous

Whether you are entering the civil litigation lawsuit as the plaintiff or the defendant, it is important to have a qualified and specialized civil litigation lawyer by your side.

The importance of a lawyer in civil litigation

In civil litigation, many cases can be settled even before anyone files a lawsuit. Depending on the circumstances, your lawyer may work out a settlement with the opposite party. Especially for larger claims, however, it is the attorney that is able to work out a settlement before the lawsuit is started. If not, it is even more important at that point to have a lawyer by your side to represent your interests.
