Civil Litigation is the broad category of cases that involve disputes between two or more parties that arise because a party believes they have experienced some form of injustice or have been injured as a result of the other parties’ negligence.
These cases are often referred to as:
- Breach of Contract — one party breaks a promise to another
- Commercial Litigation — disputes between businesses
- Personal Injury — person injured by another party’s negligence
The party who brings the lawsuit is referred to as the Plaintiff, and the person sued is the Defendant.
You can almost always have a lawsuit filed against you, and even the smallest of disputes have been known to make anyone nervous about what could happen next. This is especially true if it’s for something that you weren’t aware you did wrong, a situation that wasn’t meant to get out of hand, or worse, something you feel you had no control over and quite possibly isn’t even your fault. When and if that day comes, it’s important to have an experienced lawyer to help determine if the other side has a valid claim.
