Areas of Practice for a Civil Litigation Defense Attorney
Civil litigation deals with non-criminal accusations. In civil cases, a dispute arises between individuals and/or businesses and typically involves one party bringing a lawsuit against another, in which compensation is often awarded to the victim. Whether you are the injured party or seeking to avoid liability responsibility, a civil litigation attorney can help you with:
- Personal injury
- Tenant/landlord disputes
- Other real estate disputes
- Contractor/customer disputes
- Contract disputes
- Class action cases
- Product liability cases
- Professional malpractice
- Unpaid wage disputes
- Tort cases
Winning Your Case
Civil law is complex. You should seek legal counsel early in your civil case and hire someone experienced in handling your type of case. Civil litigation defense attorneys are an investment and a safeguard against financial or other losses, which can be significant.
To win your case, your attorney will help you produce convincing evidence as to any injury or neglect sustained due to the actions and/or inactions of an obligated party. Your civil litigation attorney will also analyze discovery produced by the opposing party. There are a number of possible strategies an experienced civil litigation defense attorney can employ.
A civil litigation attorney may be able to argue plaintiff negligence or comparative negligence that assert a shared liability by the plaintiff and the defendant. They may also contend that the plaintiff assumed risk for any behavior that caused personal injury, or that a superseding event or act of nature is to blame. Similarly, there are defense strategies that admit to allegations made by the plaintiff but avoid liability by presenting a valid excuse or justification.
With all of this in mind, it is also possible for a skilled litigation attorney to seek an out-of-court settlement such as mediation or arbitration. For the defense, this can mean a speedier path to a fair resolution and fewer legal costs.
