Are you involved in civil litigation?
Civil litigation is a lawsuit brought to court in order to receive damages or recover a right—usually between individuals, businesses, or nonprofits.
Possible civil litigation lawsuits include:
- Tort claims
- Worker’s compensation
- Employee grievance appeals
- Employee discrimination claims
- General civil claims
What should I expect in a civil litigation lawsuit?
A civil litigation suit begins as soon as the plaintiff files a written complaint. The defendant will then respond and deliver a written “answer” to the complaint in order to make any kind of plea.
After the answer is filed the parties engage in the “discovery” process. At this point, the parties will learn about all the facts involved in the case in order to prepare for the trial. The discovery process includes witness questioning and answering, the exchange of documents, as well as written questions, known as “interrogations.”
