What is Civil Litigation?
Civil litigation is commonly referred to as civil law. Civil law is a branch of law that deals with disputes between individuals and/or organizations. At the end of these disputes compensation may be awarded to the victim. For instance, if a car crash victim claims damages against the driver for loss or injury sustained in an accident, this will be a civil law case.
The objectives of civil law are different from other types of law. In civil law there is the attempt to right a wrong, honor an agreement, or settle a dispute. If there is a victim, they get compensation, and the person who is the cause of the wrong pays. If it is an equity matter, there is often a pie for division and it gets allocated by a process of civil law.
