How does a civil lawsuit begin?

A civil lawsuit starts with one party filing paperwork with the court. When you have been damaged due to the actions or inactions of the other party, you will make a request of the court to order the other party to pay you damages. Depending on the facts of your case, your damages may be for property, personal injuries, or in some cases, punitive in nature. The way most people start the process is by first speaking with a civil litigation attorney. The attorney will discuss your case with you, the legal process, and file all the paperwork for you. Typically an attorney will send a demand letter first, to attempt to resolve the issue outside of court. If the other party does not agree to settle, then you should go through the civil court system to receive proper compensation. Once you file the suit with the court, the papers will be served on the other party and your lawsuit has begun.

How long will it take to resolve my civil lawsuit?

The amount of time it takes to settle a civil lawsuit can vary. Sometimes lawsuits settle rather quickly, in a few short weeks or months. However, some lawsuits may take multiple months, or even years, to resolve. If your case has a lot of parties, or the subject matter is complex, there may be delays in the court process. To get an accurate idea on how long your lawsuit can take, you should always talk with your attorney. They may be able to provide you with a more precise timeline depending on the particular facts in your case.

Is there a deadline for filing a lawsuit in civil court?

Yes. These are called statute of limitations and are a time limit for how long you can wait until you file a lawsuit. The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of lawsuit you are filing. If you fail to file your lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitations, then you may be barred from bringing your case into court. It is crucial that you speak with a lawyer right away if you are contemplating filing a lawsuit. The clock starts to tick from the moment you were damaged. While one or two years seems like a long time, your attorney needs that crucial time to gather information and put together a strong motion to file in court. Bottom line, don’t wait and contact an attorney immediately.
