Understanding Civil Litigation
“Civil litigation” refers to non-criminal legal matters in which a dispute between two or more parties must be settled outside of or in court. All types of legal disagreements may fall under the umbrella of “civil litigation.”
Some examples of civil litigation include:
- Personal injury and wrongful death claims
- Product liability lawsuits
- Mass torts and class actions
- Medical malpractice cases
- Landlord-tenant disputes
- Real estate litigation
- Business law issues
- Shareholder disagreements
- Employment law cases
- Wage and hour disputes
- Overtime claims
- Trademark and copyright claims
- Intellectual property disputes
- Breach of contract
When a legal matter does not involve criminal charges but, nevertheless, necessitates mediation, arbitration, and/or trial, it will likely lead to civil litigation.
What Is the Statute of Limitations on Civil Lawsuits in Georgia?
The statute of limitations is the deadline by which you have to file a lawsuit. In Georgia, the statute of limitations on civil lawsuits varies depending on the type of case, as well as other relevant factors. However, that being said, the general statute of limitations on most civil lawsuits in Georgia is two years from the date of the alleged incident, injury, or discovery of physical and/or financial harm.
This means that, in most cases, you have just two years to file your lawsuit. We strongly recommend that you act sooner rather than later if you think you may have a case. The more time our attorneys have to gather evidence and build your case, the better their chances of succeeding in recovering damages on your behalf.
Damages in Civil Lawsuits
In most cases, the purpose of filing a civil lawsuit is twofold: one, it allows you to hold the liable party accountable for negligent, wrongful, or unlawful behavior, and, two, it allows you to seek financial compensation for physical, emotional, and/or financial harm you have endured as a result of the defendant’s conduct.
Known as “damages,” the losses you have suffered due to the negligent, wrongful, or unlawful conduct of the defendant may include the following and more:
- Medical expenses
- Lost income or wages
- Loss of employment benefits
- Lost or diminished earning ability
- Unpaid overtime
- Physical and/or mental pain and suffering
- Emotional distress and hardship
- Reputational harm
Note that this is not an exhaustive list. At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, our Adairsville civil litigation lawyers are prepared to fully investigate your case and determine the full extent of your damages. We use this information to aggressively seek maximum compensation, fighting to recover every penny you are owed for the harm and suffering you have endured.
