Steps of Civil Lawsuit

It is not possible to predict the duration it will take to a lawsuit from the start to the end. However, there are some steps, which you can ordinarily check. You need to meet such steps in the right order. First, you start with pre-filling. This is the step, which occurs before any claims or complaints are filed in a court of law. Usually, one’s first meeting with a lawyer occurs during this particular time. The attorney gets the opportunity to learn what happened in the incident or accident. It helps the attorney determine whether your claim is worth pursuing.

After entering all pleadings, attorneys for the both sides come up with timeline and discovery plan. The information is then given to the judges for approval. It includes collecting depositions from persons and gathering affidavits. Moreover, expert witnesses are lined up. After collecting all evidence, a party can choose to decide various things in one’s favor.
