Civil litigation differs from that of criminal prosecution, as a civil action is a lawsuit filed with a court for the purpose of recovering damages, recover a right, or to protect legal rights and interests. Civil litigation is typically considered to be a private dispute between individuals, businesses or non-profit organizations. At the same time, civil litigation claims may involve public law issues.
Civil Lawsuits legal and law practice may include but not limited to:
Civil litigation lawsuits are initiated at the point that the plaintiff files an official written complaint. The defendant is then afforded the opportunity to respond in the form of a written response to the complaint, in order to make any kind of plea or assertion to the civil claims which have been brought. The next step is to enter into the discovery process where all facts are gathered for the purpose of preparing for a trial. This process may include witness statements, the exchange of documents, as well as written questions, known as “interrogatories.
