Civil litigation involves a legal dispute between two or more parties, usually involving monetary compensation or damages. It encompasses a broad array of legal proceedings, basically involving anything that isn’t criminal in nature. This includes, but is not limited to, Contract Law and Collections.
Personal Injury/Wrongful Death
If you have suffered from an injury or accident due to another party’s negligence, then you have the right to file a lawsuit. Personal injury suits are brought forth to provide just compensation to the injured party, and to discourage the continuation of the behavior that caused the injury.
Criminal/Traffic Law encompasses all aspects of the criminal justice system, including misdemeanors and felony offenses. In North Carolina, depending on the type of criminal charge, the potential penalties differ tremendously.
