When you hear "civil litigation," what you should think of is any litigation that is not criminal in nature. Even if a criminal act led to you filing a wrongful death claim, for example, the wrongful death claim would still go through the civil court.

Civil litigation is an important part of the justice system because it's part of how victims of injuries and crimes get compensated. There are many times when civil litigation is used, including for:

  • Personal injury lawsuits
  • Landlord or tenant disputes
  • Product liability lawsuits
  • Wrongful death claims
  • Medical malpractice claims
  • Real estate lawsuits

Why is it important to work with an experienced civil litigation attorney?

As with most things in law, it's essential that you work with an attorney who is educated in the type of law that you're dealing with. A civil litigation attorney is familiar with trials and what it takes to help victims get compensated. They're familiar with the process of going through court as well as the things you need to do to bring a solid case and win.

Your attorney does more than just build your case up. They guide you through the justice system, informing you of your rights and responsibilities. They can handle negotiations and deals that the defendant's team presents. Overall, having a civil litigation attorney on your side makes everything easier for you, and you can be sure that you're getting advice from someone who has a history of working with people who are in similar situations as you are in right now.
