What Is Civil Litigation?
The civil justice system offers a valuable way for individuals and businesses to seek a fair resolution when they have been wronged or injured due to malpractice, negligence, or carelessness. In civil court, one may sue for monetary damages to recoup losses, economic and non-economic in nature. The civil justice system operates independently from the criminal justice system, where one may face charges for violating the law and penalties such as imprisonment, fines, and probation.

How to File a Civil Law Claim
If you believe you have been wronged and would like to file a civil claim in Connecticut, the first thing to do is ensure you have a viable case worth pursuing. Lawsuits can be very time-consuming and costly, so you should never file a claim unless you are confident in your case and have no other options to resolve it.
By consulting with an experienced civil law attorney during a free consultation, you can have all your questions and concerns addressed so you can move forward with confidence. When you reach out to Morrissey, Morrissey & Rydzik, LLC about a civil law claim, we will look at the validity of your claim and the strength of your evidence in order to provide honest and straightforward guidance regarding whether you should pursue the claim.
Once you have decided to file, you can choose whether to work with an attorney or pursue the case on your own. Since civil law claims involve numerous steps and procedures, complicated paperwork, and strict time limits, working with a lawyer will make the process far more effective and efficient. We highly recommend retaining an attorney unless you are already well versed in this field of law.
While most civil claims settle outside of court, some cases do end up making it all the way to a trial. Whether you need a legal representative in pretrial negotiations or to stand up for you in front of a judge and jury, we can help.
