What Is Civil Litigation?
The term “civil litigation” encompasses a broad range of matters, but essentially it relates to any litigation where (1) a party seeks money damages from another or (2) seeks a specific order from the court compelling the adverse party to take an action or to refrain from taking an action.
Examples of civil litigation include personal injury cases, property damage disputes, contract disputes, partnership disputes, business litigation, medical malpractice, breaches of fiduciary duty, products liability law, real estate law, creditor rights and consumer rights.
To file a civil lawsuit, the plaintiff must have a legal basis for his or her actions. This is referred to as a “cause of action.” If you are unsure whether you have a valid claim, we will meet with you to discuss what happened and to advise you of your options. You choose which action you wish to take, and our skilled lawyer and legal staff will guide you through the process.
