Litigation refers to the process of resolving a dispute or controversy through the court system. It can be used to address a wide variety of legal issues including anything from contract disputes to personal injury claims. Litigation serves as a formal and structured way to resolve legal disputes. By going through the court system, parties can present their case and receive a decision from an unbiased third party. This ensures that the outcome is based on the standard of the case and the law, rather than on a personal bias or other contributing factors.
What is civil litigation? Civil litigation occurs when you have two or more parties who are involved in a legal disagreement that involves seeking monetary damages.
Personal injury litigation is a subdivision of civil litigation and one of the most common cases of civil litigation. Personal injury litigation involves a party asking for compensation for the damage caused by the opposing party. Some examples where personal injury litigation may come in to play would be motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents and wrongful death.
Public entity litigation is another subdivision of civil litigation. Public entity litigation involves law surrounding an organization or group who provide services to the public on behalf of the government. Examples of public entities include public schools, public libraries and public health care services.
