What is Civil Litigation?

Civil litigation, also known as a civil lawsuit , is normally based on non-criminal statutes. In other words, it is a separate entity from criminal proceedings. Civil litigation is a dispute that is legally handled by the court. A common example of a civil litigation case is personal injury. These cases can involve one person, a group of people, or even large businesses.

How Do I File a Civil Lawsuit In Nevada?

There are several steps when trying to file a civil lawsuit, but it is important to consult with an attorney before all else. We have the experience to help you identify what case you have, and by what grounds. Here are the four steps that are commonly taken to initiate the lawsuit:

  1. Pleading - this is the first step in the process, and usually consists of filing paperwork, detailing their complaint, and choosing a location for the lawsuit.
  2. Discovery - once both parties have completed their pleas, they will enter the discovery phase where each side gathers information and data to help strengthen their cases. This phase is important because it allows for transparency and it can often uncover hidden agendas.
  3. Trial - If the dispute has not been settled in the discovery phase, then a trial will be required.
  4. Appeal - If a party does not agree to the rulings of the court, they may appeal it. If an appeal is made, then it is reviewed by an appellate court where a final verdict will be made.
