What is civil litigation?

Civil litigation is the legal process where individuals or businesses pursue legal action against one another in a civil court, typically over a dispute concerning money or property. It involves many legal issues, including contract disputes, personal injury claims, employment disputes, and more.

The goal of civil litigation is to resolve a dispute and potentially award damages to the person bringing the lawsuit, which is called the plaintiff. In some cases, the defendant may bring a counter claim also seeking damages from the plaintiff.
