What is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation refers to the process of resolving certain types of disputes in a court of law. Civil matters usually revolve around the personal and professional relationships between people, such as a contract dispute between businesses or a real estate dispute between two homeowners.
Unlike criminal matters involving the government versus an individual, civil lawsuits are between an individual or business suing another individual or business. A civil lawsuit can be brought over a breach of contract, a residential eviction after a broken lease, injuries sustained in a car accident, and many other issues and disputes.
