What is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation is best described as legal action that involves the court in order to handle private (civil) matters, with the intention of recovering damages stemming from personal injury caused by another individual's negligence or intentional wrongful acts. Although each personal injury case is unique, there are certain situations that tend to result in claims being litigated in court. Some of the more common case types involve automobile accidents, slip and fall incidents, dog bite injuries or other trauma resulting in injuries. If you or a loved one have reason to believe that a person or organization is responsible for your injuries, Broward civil litigation lawyers are available to handle your personal injury claim in a timely and effective manner.

Understanding the Civil Litigation Process
The civil litigation process is one that is based on proving the fault of one party that resulted in the injury of another individual. This requires establishing responsibility of the defendant. These cases are sometimes decided by a jury trial in order to determine that a defendant is or is not responsible for an injury and subsequent damages. The majority of civil litigation cases bypass the lengthy time and costs of a legal battle by settling out of court, or by seeking alternate resolutions such as mediation or arbitration. Although many civil litigation claims are resolved without reaching trial through means of settlement proceedings, retaining the services of an experienced personal injury attorney is critical to ensure that your case is conducted in an expedient and professional manner.
