What is a Civil Lawsuit?

A civil lawsuit differs from criminal law in that the consequences are typically monetary penalties intended to reimburse the person who suffered the loss, at no fault of their own. Rulings are typically decided by a judge and are based on the probable truth the admissible evidence tells. 

Preparing for a Civil Dispute

There are five steps to resolving any civil dispute. Understanding them and what you need to do to prepare for each step is the best place to start.

  1. Investigation
  2. Pleadings
  3. Discovery
  4. Settlement
  5. Appeals

The Elements that Create Negligence Law

Negligence law subdivides into the following elements: malice, intent, harm, legal causation, direct cause and breach of duty. We’ll examine the specifics of your case to determine which area(s) your circumstances fall under before calculating a legal course of action that puts your interests first. We gather and present evidence on your behalf, explaining the supporting facts in the best possible light, to earn you the damages you deserve.
