What is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation is the process through which one party pursues a claim for compensation against another party in court. In the area of personal injury, for example, if a person is injured due to the negligence or other fault of another person or company, the injured person has the right to file a lawsuit and attempt to recover compensation for his or her injuries. This compensation is known in the law as “damages,” and damages in a personal injury case can include such things as:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages; and
- Pain and suffering
People who choose to pursue a claim for damages in court should seek the advice and representation of a civil litigation attorney to assist them.
