If you’ve exhausted all of your other options, and can’t find a resolution to your problem, it may be time to file a lawsuit. No one wants to file a lawsuit; but, sometimes it’s the only way to vindicate your rights.
What is the Statute of Limitations?
Keep in mind that you can only file a lawsuit if the ‘statute of limitations’ for your claim has not expired. A ‘statute of limitations’ is the time period during which you can file a lawsuit from the date of the events you are suing over. Statutes of limitations exist so that people cannot be subject to lawsuits for conduct taking places years and years ago.
If you do not file your case within the statute of limitations period, you may lose the right to sue. If you do not know what the statute of limitations is for your particular case, you should contact us immediately, in order to preserve your right to file a lawsuit.
What is Civil Litigation?
There are only two types of lawsuits: criminal and civil. If you want to want to sue someone for money, or to make them do something (this is called ‘specific performance’), you will file a civil lawsuit.
Civil litigation attorneys bring lawsuits on behalf of their clients. Civil litigation attorneys are often called ‘trial attorneys’; but, the vast majority of cases filed do not go trial. Your case may result in a trial. However, there is no guarantee at which stage of litigation a lawsuit will end.
What Types of Cases Are Civil Litigation?
There are a number of different types of civil litigation cases, including:
- Contract Disputes
- Business Disputes
- Intellectual Property
- Antitrust Litigation
- Employment Law
- Personal Injury or Worker’s Compensation
