Civil litigation is the process in which disputes between individuals and companies are resolved in court or at arbitration, which is similar to trying the case before a single judge instead of a jury. It involves preparing the case for trial, and then trying it if necessary. Civil litigation encompasses many kinds of disputes, such as breach of contract cases between companies, often called commercial litigation, lawsuits brought by individuals against companies, injury cases in which an individual has been harmed due to someone acting negligently, wrongful death cases in which someone has died due to another’s negligence and construction disputes involving claims that money is due and has not been paid or claims the construction was defective. Sometimes civil litigation involves a request for injunctive relief, which is asking the court to order that one of the parties either does something or stops particular behavior.
