When to File a Civil Lawsuit
Are you involved in a dispute with someone? If no one was arrested or charged with a crime, you may have to file a civil lawsuit to get the restitution you need. For example, if you bought a product but it was defective and caused you harm or injury, you could file a civil lawsuit against the manufacturer to make sure they fix the issue and repair any damages you suffered as a result.
Civil lawsuits can be filed for a wide variety of disputes, such as:
- Product liability
- Landlord/tenant disputes
- Civil rights violations
- Trademark infringement
- Property disputes
If you think you may have a lawsuit on your hands, speak with the team at Smith Horton Law. We have experience helping clients build strong cases that protect their interests.
Someone Sued Me. Now What?
Once you are served with lawsuit papers, you have 30 days to respond. If you do not respond, the judge could award the plaintiff by default. Like any court proceeding, there will be a period of discovery where you and the plaintiff bring forward all relevant evidence to tell your side of the story. As this is a complex part of a case, it is important that you employ the skills and insights of a Charlotte attorney with experience.
Once evidence and testimony have been presented, the judge will write a court order that requires certain action. If you or the other party fail to obey, you could be charged with contempt of court and face further penalties. You can also file for an appeal to request that a ruling be revisited and overturned.
