Civil Litigation Attorneys in The Woodlands Defending People and Businesses in Civil Lawsuits
Civil litigation is a blanket term for many areas of law that are considered non-criminal offenses. The goal of civil litigation is to resolve a dispute between one or more people or businesses to recover restitution for any losses or damages resulting from a conflict. We are experienced in handling tough negotiations and settlements in and out of the trial.
In short, civil cases are disagreements between people or companies requiring legal intervention to be resolved. Sometimes money is involved, and sometimes it’s not. For instance, a civil case can be a personal injury claim, employment or labor dispute, or a child support dispute.
Our attorneys are experienced in reaching favorable outcomes, helping parties reach fair agreements, and aggressively pursuing compensation for injuries and damages as it applies.
What is Civil Litigation?
Civil matters are everywhere. A person that gets hurt in a car accident and wants to sue the other driver for damages is considered a civil lawsuit. An employee filing a lawsuit against their employer after slipping and falling at work is another example of a civil lawsuit.
The most common civil litigation cases include:
- Real Estate
- Personal Injury
- Family issues
- Employment issues
In a civil litigation lawsuit, a person does not face prison time if convicted of a civil charge. Civil cases can turn criminal if evidence uncovers a criminal act and requires criminal investigation.
How Do I File a Civil Lawsuit?
There are many steps involved in filing a civil lawsuit. The first question is whether you have a valid claim or grievance that can be resolved with legal action. Not every civil matter qualifies, and filing a lawsuit without grounds will waste your time and money.
There is also the statute of limitations, depending on the civil matter. For instance, a person must file a personal injury claim two years from the date of the incident. If you are considering a civil lawsuit, you can bypass some of these processes and procedures and let us do the heavy lifting.
We handle civil litigation cases like this day in and day out, and our speed and knowledge will no doubt be an advantage to your case. From qualifying your case to filing the paperwork and managing it on your behalf, count on us to handle your lawsuit with care.
What are the Three Phases of Civil Litigation?
There are three primary phases of civil litigation to help attorneys and their clients prepare for trial, build a case, and finally, reach a resolution. These include pre-trial, trial, and post-trial.
Pre-trial: The pre-trial phase of litigation is time-consuming, but it is an essential foundation in any civil litigation lawsuit. This is the due diligence phase and requires our team to conduct research, prepare filings, send notices to appropriate parties and respond to any communications.
Trial: The trial phase is typically for parties that cannot agree on a resolution. Our civil litigation lawyers will spend time building a case and preparing for additional hearings until an agreement is reached.
Post-trial: A judge reaches a final verdict, though there are actions our attorneys can take in the post-trial phase if needed. This might include modifying an order or enforcing an order.
