Civil Litigation FAQ

Civil Litigation FAQ

What Types of Cases are Handled in Civil Court?

Civil courts handle a wide range of cases, and plaintiffs can file complaints regarding the following and more:

  • Contract disputes
  • Real estate disputes
  • Landlord/tenant conflicts
  • Corporate disputes
  • Collections and defaults
  • Construction disputes
  • Personal injury claims
  • Insurance disputes

You should always have a civil litigation lawyer in Boca Raton who has experience representing clients in your specific type of civil case.

What Legal Relief Can the Court Grant?

When you file a complaint, you have to state the legal relief you are seeking to resolve the matter. Relief can take different forms, including:

  • Monetary judgment
  • Eviction
  • Injunctive relief
  • Declaratory relief

Not all cases are for money damages, as many plaintiffs are seeking a court order for the defendant to do something specific or to refrain from doing something.

Will My Case Go to Trial?

The litigation process is a long one, and there are many opportunities for a case to settle before a trial date. A skilled civil litigator will know how to engage in settlement negotiations throughout the process, hopefully saving the time and expense of a trial. If your case does go to trial, it could be a jury trial or a bench trial, in which the judge makes the fact-finding decisions.

Do I Need a Lawyer for a Civil Case?

There is no requirement for parties to have legal representation for a civil case. However, whether you are a plaintiff or a defendant, an experienced litigator can often substantially improve the outcome of your case.
