Civil law is the branch of law dealing with disputes between individuals or organisations, in which compensation or a sum of money may be awarded to the claimant or victim. For instance, if a car crash victim claims damages against the driver for loss or injury sustained in the accident, this will be a civil law case. It is often suggested that civil proceedings are taken for the purpose of obtaining monetary compensation, and may thus be distinguished from criminal proceedings, whose purpose is to administer punishment. However, exemplary or punitive damages may be awarded in civil proceedings.
What we do:
We litigate, we sue people, we ruin their day – but its a costly and risky process, and simply rushing into commencing proceedings against someone may not be the best choice or produce the best outcome. Think about this – it is possible to have a cause of action but no remedy. Think about this too – lawyers make more money taking matters to court then they do trying to resolve them without litigation. Litigation should be the last resort, not the first option!
So yes, we sue people; but not until we are satisfied its the only option left for you to exercise your rights.
