Civil Litigation & Your Rights
When you cannot come to an agreement on a legal issue with another party, litigation may be necessary. Litigation is essentially the process of suing another party; civil litigation involves lawsuits that fall outside the criminal justice system.
Some examples of common civil litigation cases include lawsuits involving:
- Personal injury
- Wrongful death
- Medical malpractice
- Professional malpractice
- Defective products
- Class actions
- Mass torts
- Divorce and other family law issues
- Business law
- Employment law
- Landlord-tenant disputes
- Intellectual property disputes
- Copyright and trademark infringement
- Wage and hour claims
- Unpaid overtime
- Shareholder disagreements
- Contract disputes
- Breach of contract
- Real estate law
When someone else acts negligently or wrongfully, causing you harm, you have the right to take action against that party or another liable entity. You do not have to simply deal with the consequences of negligent or unlawful behavior on your own—and Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC can help.
We have extensive experience representing the rights of people throughout Whitfield County, Georgia, and the South in all types of legal disputes. At our Dalton office, we provide the same level of personal attention and client support that has earned us a reputation statewide as one of the region’s leading civil litigation teams. We encourage you to get in touch with us today to learn more, including how we can assist you with your case.
What Are “Damages” in Civil Lawsuits?
“Damages” is a legal term that refers to the various losses—financial and otherwise—a person or party suffers as a result of someone else’s negligence, wrongful conduct, or default.
There are two types of damages in civil lawsuits:
- Compensatory: Compensatory damages compensate the plaintiff (the person or party bringing the lawsuit) for specific economic and non-economic losses. These may include things such as loss of income or earning potential, medical expenses, and physical and mental pain and suffering, among many others.
- Punitive: Also known as “exemplary damages,” punitive damages are awarded when the defendant is found to have acted with gross negligence or wanton/willful disregard for the safety and wellbeing of others. Unlike compensatory damages, punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant and send a message that such conduct won’t be tolerated.
At Perrotta, Lamb & Johnson, LLC, we fight to help our clients recover the full compensation they are owed. If someone else’s negligent or wrongful acts or omissions have caused you financial and/or intangible harm, we can help you seek the justice you deserve.
