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.

Rather than carrying the burden alone, let us come to your aid in your time of need.

Reasons for Pursuing Civil Litigation

If you have lost money or belongings because of the wrongful actions of someone else, civil litigation could be the answer for you. Perhaps you have suffered a personal injury or experienced a life-changing event that significantly impacts your quality of life. Maybe you have been involved in an unfortunate business exchange, and have suffered unnecessary hardship and financial loss. You may be a doctor who has been wrongfully accused of malpractice. All of these are legitimate reasons to seek legal counsel. Rather than carrying the burden alone, let us come to your aid in your time of need. We have extensive experience in insurance claims, insurance coverage, property damage, product liability, subrogation, and more.
