Civil Litigation

Bellevue Civil Litigation Lawyer

Fighting for Your Best Interests in Civil Court

When disputes arise in life, whether they involve individuals, businesses, or even governmental agencies, they can lead to civil litigation. These disputes are handled as civil claims or lawsuits to be resolved in civil court. In addition, they involve relationships between people, such as disputing neighbors, a business and a customer, or between two companies.

Unlike criminal prosecution that can lead to criminal penalties, the result of civil litigation is to either award damages to the aggrieved party and/or to recover a right or enforce an action to be taken or stopped

Types of Civil Litigation Cases in Washington

Civil litigation covers a broad area of subjects. They involve a variety of complaints that fail to be resolved between the parties themselves, such as through direct communication, negotiation, or mediation. Thus it is left up to a judge and jury to decide the outcome.

Civil litigation can involve almost any relationship between two parties in our society. Examples of these can include but are not limited to the following:

  • Business disputes, such as in contract disputes, breach of fiduciary duty, disputes with clients, customers, patrons, vendors, suppliers, manufacturers, between partners, and more
  • Employee-employer disputes, such as those involving discrimination, sexual harassment, or other alleged breaches of employment laws
  • Landlord-tenant disputes, based on the management issues, lease issues, nonpayment of rent, and more
  • Other real estate disputes, such as disputes between parties over property lines, easements, breach of sales or purchase contracts, and more; these can involve buyers, sellers, brokers, loan agents, real estate agents, general contractors, subcontractors, and more
  • Personal injury, wherein one party alleges that the other caused them injuries and damages due to negligence or wrongdoing
  • Probate litigation where heirs, beneficiaries, or interested parties are in dispute over the settlement of a deceased person’s estate
  • Fraud litigation in which an individual, employee, business, investment professional, or other person or entity is accused of some type of fraudulent activity

These commonly based cases are on a “tort,” which means some wrongdoing or infringement on another’s rights. When litigated, they lead to damages, generally monetary compensation awarded to the wronged party for their losses. The entire process starts with a complaint by the aggrieved party, which is filed in court and leads to a civil lawsuit.
