The civil court system makes it possible for individuals and business entities to seek legal remedies. While a criminal case involves a prosecutor bringing charges on behalf of the state, a civil case gives you the chance to make the legal system work to provide you with an appropriate remedy when someone has wronged you.
There are different types of civil litigation, and different remedies that the court can provide. Sometimes, a plaintiff will pursue a civil case to ask the court to demand behavior stop, or to compel a specific behavior on the part of a defendant. In many cases, however, the goal of a civil case is to get financial compensation for losses which someone has caused.
Nehoray and Drake, LLP provides assistance to plaintiffs in civil cases. Our firm is especially focused on personal injury and wrongful death, as damage to your body or the loss of a loved one can cause permanent and profound change to your future. We also provide representation in business litigation, breach of contract claims, and more. Give us a call today to find out how our legal team can assist you in using the civil court system to get the remedy you deserve.
How Does a Civil Litigation Lawyer Help You?
If you or your business has been damaged or harmed in some way by any failure to fulfill a legal obligation, you may be able to make a civil claim. For example, if a supplier failed to deliver in breach of contract and you lost business because of it, you can pursue a lawsuit in civil court to collect damages. If you got hurt in an auto accident because a driver failed to fulfill a duty to operate a car with reasonable care, you can pursue a personal injury lawsuit.
Nehoray and Drake, LLP can advise you on whether you have a claim if you believe you have been wronged. We will review the circumstances of the harm that befell you or the wrong that was done to you to identify whether there are grounds to sue. If you can make a claim, we help you to identify all possible defendants who could be liable under the law. In many cases, there are multiple parties who could be responsible for providing you with a remedy, and we work to identify all parties who are liable for the losses you’ve incurred.
Once the defendants have been identified, our legal team will move forward with filing a lawsuit, conducting an investigation, interviewing witnesses, and putting together a strong damage claim. We help you to identify remedies that are appropriate, such as monetary damages; an injunction (an order to stop a behavior); or specific performance (an order to follow through with a contract’s terms). We also assist you in presenting your evidence to a judge or jury in civil court with the goal of getting the remedy you seek.
Many civil cases are resolved outside of court, so our legal team can also help with settlement negotiations. We can work to use our persuasive skills and negotiating abilities to convince a defendant to accept responsibility and provide you with an appropriate remedy without you having to go to a courtroom. We are skilled both at settling claims and skilled at presenting evidence in court, so we will help you to decide on the best legal strategy for fighting for your right to a legal remedy.
Personal Injury Claims
While Nehoray and Drake, LLP helps with many different kinds of civil litigation, personal injury claims are a special focus of our firm. If someone hurt you through negligence or wrongdoing, we work hard to help ensure they provide you with appropriate compensation.
An injury victim should be “made whole,” or compensated for both economic loss and non-financial damage following an accident. Our legal team can help you to pursue a case to get medical costs covered; compensation for lost wages; emotional distress and pain and suffering damages; or wrongful death damages when fatal accidents happen.
You should not have to worry about paying for care going forward after an injury, or about how you will support yourself and your loved ones if your injury prevents you from working. Those who hurt you, whether that is a person or company or government agency, should pay for your losses and damages.
- Nehoray and Drake, LLP helps clients hurt in a wide variety of different ways to pursue claims for personal injury or wrongful death compensation. We can help if you were hurt or your loved one was killed due to:
- An auto accident
- A bicycle accident
- A pedestrian accident
- A motorcycle accident
- A slip-and-fall
- Other injury on property
- Medical negligence
- Nursing home abuse or neglect
- Defective drugs or dangerous products
If you are hurt and you believe someone else played a role in the incident that caused your injury, let us help you to determine if you can make a personal injury claim.
