What Is Civil Litigation

March 6, 2019

According to Duhaime’s Law Dictionary. Civil litigation is a term of art which distinguishes lawyer Court work in the non-criminal stream of actions in law. Did even reading that sentence cause some confusion? Let’s try to rephrase that in a clearer way. Basically, civil litigation encompasses not just the representations made in Court but also the pre-trial procedures including interlocutory hearings, and the post-trial procedures such as costs and enforcement of a judgment.

The three most common forms of civil litigation for people in the United States are family law claims, tort claims and claims in which a breach of contract is alleged. In other words, when two or more parties become embroiled in a legal dispute seeking money or another specific performance rather than criminal sanctions, civil litigation is the result. The next step for both parties is to head to the courtroom for trial so a judge or jury can decide the matter. This is often the case when it comes to disputes with landlords and tenants, personal injury claims, medical malpractice claims, real estate lawsuits, and construction liability lawsuits.
