What Is General Litigation?

The phrase “general civil litigation” refers to lawsuits dealing with whether or not one party will pay money to another party.

A litigation lawyer can help with a broad range of different legal matters including:

  • employment law
  • contract disputes
  • landlord/tenant cases

If you’re considering bringing a lawsuit, it’s important that you find the right litigation attorney to represent your interests.

A skilled South Carolina litigation lawyer understands complex legal matters, and can advise you of your rights in different scenarios depending on the type of case that has been filed against you or which you are filing.

Filing A Litigation Claim In South Carolina

A plaintiff begins a lawsuit by filing a complaint. The complaint will explain the jurisdiction, the venue, claims or counts (ex: breach of contract or negligence), and damages in a case. The complaint can also request for a jury if the plaintiff wants a jury trial. Where the complaint is filed depends on the dollar amount of the claimed damages, the type of claims, and where the parties live or have business.

Your civil lawyer has the knowledge necessary and can be sure that you comply with all court rules and ensure you do not miss important deadlines that could have serious financial implications for you. The rules and deadlines in litigation vary in every case and depend upon which court has jurisdiction over the lawsuit, which judge is assigned to your case, what types of parties are involved in the case, and the claims that are at stake.

How A General Litigation Lawyer Can Help
