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.

Outline of a Civil Litigation Lawsuit

A civil case typically involves the following stages.

  • Pleadings – Formal documents submitted by both parties involved in a case.
  • Discovery – The process of gathering evidence and information relevant to the dispute.
  • Pretrial – Witnesses and evidence are prepared for trial.
  • Settlement – Both parties may reach a settlement before a trial begins.
  • Trial – If a trial is needed, both sides present evidence and question witnesses in the courtroom.

Common Questions About Civil Litigation Law

Yes. Many civil litigation cases never make it to court as a settlement is reached. During the legal process, parties may resolve the issue successfully through negotiation, arbitration or mediation. Based on years of experience, our attorneys can advise when a settlement is recommended.

Common examples of civil litigation lawsuits include breach of contract, personal injury, property damage and fraud. There are, however, many other cases that may be resolved in the civil courts.

The timescale for a civil litigation lawsuit can vary considerably. While some cases are settled early, others may take years. We can advise a client further after a legal consultation.
