What is Civil Litigation?
Occasionally, disputes can be resolved directly and quickly. However, if a disagreement turns into a larger, more complex issue, civil litigation may be necessary. When parties become involved in a legal dispute and seek monetary compensation for redressal, it leads to civil litigation. This process can be initiated by any private party, such as a person or business who claims they have suffered damage. A plaintiff in a civil case has a much lower burden of proof than a public prosecutor in a criminal case. In civil litigation, the plaintiff must convince the jury by a preponderance of evidence. This means it is “more likely than not” that the claims presented against the defendant are true. The majority of civil cases are resolved in a courtroom during a trial.
