Civil litigation is the legal process to resolve disputes between two or more parties, usually involving monetary damages. Examples of civil lawsuits include contract disputes, personal injury cases, debt collection matters, and property damage. Depending on the type of dispute being resolved, there are numerous types of civil litigation available.
Contract Disputes: A contract dispute occurs when one or both parties fail to comply with its terms and conditions. This can be a breach-of-contract situation or where one party has not performed as promised in the agreement. In order for a contract dispute to proceed through civil litigation, it must involve a written contract, monetary damages, and a disagreement between parties.
Personal Injury Cases: A personal injury case occurs when an individual suffers physical or emotional harm due to the negligence of another party. Personal injury cases can involve car accidents, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents, workplace injuries, product liability claims, and more. In order for a personal injury case to proceed through civil litigation, it must involve negligence on the part of one or more parties.
Debt Collection Matters: Debt collection matters occur when an individual is trying to collect money from another person or business. This can include credit card debt, medical bills, unpaid rent/utilities, and more. In order for a debt collection matter to proceed through civil litigation, it must involve an unpaid amount of money.
Property Damage: Property damage occurs when one party damages the property of another party. This can include vandalism, theft, or negligence on the part of one or both parties. In order for a property damage situation to proceed through civil litigation, it must involve physical damage to the property in question.
