Understanding Civil Litigation
Civil litigation is a process to resolve a disagreement or dispute between two or more parties through the legal system. Litigation can be initiated by either party when they have suffered an alleged injury or wrong at the hands of someone else. These cases are dealt with in court, and typically, the remedy sought by the party initiating litigation involves compensation for some harm experienced.
The process of litigating a civil lawsuit involves several distinct steps to ensure that both sides are presented fairly and that justice is served.
At the most basic level, this includes pleadings, which detail each side's version of events. These include:
- Filing a Complaint with the Circuit Court in Cook County.
- Discovery, during which both sides gather evidence by propounding and answering written interrogatories, exchanging relevant documents and other evidence, and appearing for a verbal deposition.
- Trial, where the parties appear in court to present their evidence.
In certain instances, if one of the parties is not satisfied with the outcome at trial, an appeal may be filed.
