General litigation is the term used to describe legal action that is taken to solve a dispute. Many lawsuits fall under the heading of general litigation. We have years of experience at the law offices of Bradley J Abbas PLLC in helping our clients successfully deal with this process.
A dispute or complaint is normally settled by a lawsuit in which the plaintiff seeks reimbursement for damages, reparations for a Breach of Contract, compensation for injuries, business disputes, or a host of other issues. General litigation can be filed against individuals, groups, associations, business entities, organizations, companies, or government agencies. General litigation can also be employed to force the parties to a contract or binding agreement, to adhere to the established accord, correct an injustice, resolve a disagreement, or compensate a victim through monetary means.
The process of general litigation involves the following steps. A plaintiff files a complaint which includes the reason for the lawsuit. The defendant then will answer. Depending on the location and the issue, you may be able to go through discovery (get evidence for the lawsuit which can include interviews and documents from other people). After this process, mediation can ensue. If the parties cannot come to an agreement, then the suit goes to trial. After the ruling by the court, a process of appeals may follow.
