Civil Trial Lawyers | Civil Disputes
In the United States, laws and courts are divided into criminal and civil. The laws and procedures in criminal and civil courts are similar, but there is one big difference: in the civil court system, the person who was harmed (the Plaintiff) must bring the accused to justice himself, without the help of the community. In civil court it is up to you to investigate, gather evidence, prove your case and prove how you were damaged. Hiring an experienced civil trial lawyer can make the difference in whether your lawsuit succeeds or fails.
When it comes to cases involving personal injury, overtime and wage claims, employment law, breach of contract, deceptive trade practices, commercial landlord-tenant disputes, negligent security and premises liability, foreclosure abuse, dangerously defective products, insurance disputes, faulty home repairs or improvements, construction defects, warranty coverage disputes, and other civil matters, the lawyers at Ross Law Group have the edge in legal skill and business knowledge. Contact us to discuss your case.
In civil cases, you are compensated for your losses with money, or in some limited circumstances, with equitable remedies like specific performance of a contractual obligation. The sooner you hire a lawyer after you are harmed, the more likely it is that your attorney can get you all of the money you are entitled to under the law.
Some acts, such as causing injuries because of drunk driving, can lead to cases in both criminal and civil court. Others, for example an employer not paying overtime wages in accordance with the law, will not lead to a criminal case. Both the civil and criminal court systems are designed to protect the community by punishing lawbreakers, compensating victims, and deterring others from breaking the law by sending the message that people and companies that break the law will be held accountable.
