All Lawsuits especially civil lawsuits always start with a problem. It can either be a problem between two businesses, two people or one where many even millions of people are involved. The problem oftentimes involves business and the government as well not just individuals.
Before a lawsuit is raised, people usually try to resolve the problem with mediation. When this approach does not work, a lawsuit is one of the ways to solve the problem and find a solution.
People Sue for Many Reasons but do they win every time?
Since you are in this website looking for answers about lawsuits, here is one of the most frequently asked questions. What can I sue for? Or Can someone sue me for x or y reason? In theory the answers to these questions is yes. You can sue and be sued for pretty much anything.
What are the different parts of a Lawsuit?
To have a lawsuit case there are three elements needed.
- A Problem – A Loss and – The Law
To start a lawsuit people need to have a problem with another party. The law in the United States does not provide the solutions to all the potential problems that we live on a daily basis. This problem can either be with a person, or a company.
In order to have justification for a lawsuit there needs to be a loss involved. It can either be in physical form or monetary form.
Last but not least there needs to be a law in place that gives the right to the person to initiate the lawsuit; stating that he/she will be compensated for the damages incurred by the other party.
This is where the expertise of a lawyer comes in hand to analyze the problem and find a law that justifies the claim for a lawsuit.
What do lawsuits try to achieve?
All lawsuits try to solve the problem that has been raised and brought to the courts. The court system will punish the offender by either sentencing to pay an amount of money or even jail time.
Take note that Lawsuits normally last for months or years and are very costly.
