The world of litigation encompasses many areas of life. There is a difference between what is considered civil and criminal. Criminal law involves a case being handled by the state, federal, or local government against the other party for the violation. An example of a civil litigation case would be when a contractor fails to complete a job or performs poor work. It has cost you money, damaged your home, and you now have to pay another contractor to have the job done correctly. The money, time, and stress this has cost you is now owed to you in damages.

The parties in a General Civil Litigation Trial will be seeking for monetary compensation for their loss. The presenting party, the plaintiff, is responsible for bringing the case to the courts and filing the complaint. The other party, the defendant, has the ability to dispute the claims and present their own version of the events. The process can last several weeks to even years. It can be difficult to prove the damages and that is where most cases will fall flat. Don’t let your case be stalled or dismissed for a lack of evidence.
