If an attorney says they focus in civil litigation, it might be challenging for someone who doesn’t hear that term often to know what it means and if the legal issue they’re facing falls under that umbrella. And we can’t blame them, either – the legal world tends to get confusing. The good news is that unless your dispute is criminal, civil litigation could be the way to go.
Civil litigation is a fancy term for a broad and focusd branch of law that begins when a person or entity files a dispute against another person or entity because they believe they have been injured or wronged and deserve compensation for those damages.
The damages in question are not based on criminal acts and can differ immensely from case to case.
Examples of common civil litigation cases:
- Someone is suing you and your business
- You were injured in a car accident because of someone else’s negligence
- One party in the case believes the other broke the terms of a legal contract
- Landlord and tenant disputes
- Partnership disputes over dissolving a business
- Someone is suing you over damaging their property
- You are seeking a restraining order or injunction to stop something
- You are suing someone for fraud, defamation, or even medical malpractice
Do you need a civil litigation attorney?
While civil litigation cases don’t involve criminal charges as you see in many courtroom dramas that play out on television, the disputes that arise from them and threaten to put you front and center in a courtroom can be equally stressful and life-changing. Therefore, they are not to be taken lightly — regardless of what side of the table you’re on. You need someone to help make sense of the legal situation you now find yourself in and offer sound advice about what to do next.
