The Civil Litigation Process: The Law Office of Thomas Beener
The civil litigation process entails several phases. It includes the investigative stage, submitting pleadings, discovery phase, pre-trial preparations, trial, settlement and filing for an appeal. Depending on the case, a lawsuit can several months to several years for resolution. The discovery phase is generally the longest in a civil litigation case. Attorneys on both sides of the table take interrogatories and depositions in order to attain the facts surrounding the case, assess their position and develop their strategy. During the civil litigation lifecycle, negotiations for settlement often take place. As a matter of fact, many civil litigation lawsuits are settled before reaching the trial phase. This is due to the fact that most insurance companies don’t want to risk the chance of a high jury verdict.
