When you have suffered damages due to the negligence of another party, you may need to hire a civil lawyer to recover damages through the court system. It can be difficult to know if your situation requires civil litigation. Fortunately for Nevada residents, if you are unsure, you can always call civil lawyer Thomas C. Bradley at (775) 323-5178 for a free initial consultation.
Common Situations Where You Should Get an Attorney
Speaking with a practiced civil litigator like Mr. Bradley will often give you a better idea of what to expect from the litigation process. The final decision of whether to go to court will generally be your decision. The exception, of course, is if you are being sued by someone else. In that circumstance, you will always want to hire a litigator to represent your interests.
Other situations that commonly require a civil litigation attorney include:
- Collecting alimony
- Settling debts
- Resolving damages from an injury
- Suing for discrimination
- Resolving business disputes
If you have a solid case and the damages that are likely recovered are substantial enough to justify the cost of litigation, then a civil lawsuit may be the right option.
Alternatives to Civil Litigation
Even if a lawyer tells you that you have a case, you may want to consider other means of receiving compensation for the damages you have suffered. Settlement out of court may be an option, or you may wish to let a third party arbitrate. Tom Bradley can help with this step as well, because he is a certified arbitrator with the authority to mediate legal disputes between two parties.
