Civil Litigation Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve received a complaint. What do I do next?

If someone has filed a complaint and a summons against you, you will need to respond to the documents within the outlined time frame. The complaint will likely be put together by a lawyer, which means your opposition already secured legal counsel. Your first step, therefore, is to contact a civil lawyer immediately.

Additionally, you must respond to the complaint as soon as you receive it. If you do not, the plaintiff will seek a default judgment from the court. If a default judgment is made, you will miss your chance to argue your side of the story, and the outcome may be one of the worst-case scenarios.

Should I settle a civil dispute out of court?

This depends on the specific circumstances of your case. Without knowing the nature of your dispute and the details of your situation, it is impossible to know the best course of action. If you are thinking about settling, contact a civil attorney before you agree to anything. Albers & Associates will take a look at your situation and make sure that you are not getting an unfair deal.

I’ve received a counterclaim to my complaint. What do I do?

If the defendant has decided to counter-sue you, you will need to respond to their complaint as they responded to yours. That is to say, you will need to file an answer with the courts.

Again, get in touch with a local, reliable attorney who can help guide you through this process.

Is my claim against the defendant legitimate?

Unsurprisingly, you cannot sue anyone for anything. If you are not sure whether your claim is legitimate or not, the best way to know is to seek the advice of a legal professional. An attorney can advise you on the nature of your claim and whether or not it is within the approved guidelines and statute of limitations.

Can I sue a business?

There are circumstances in which you may wish to sue a business for false advertising, faulty products, or other reasons. Depending on the nature of your complaint, and the damages suffered, you may be able to make a case to recover some of the damages.

However, if the nature of your complaint applies to a large group of people, you may wish to file a class-action lawsuit. This type of lawsuit can be particularly difficult to win when the defendant is a well-known entity with a great deal of money. Wealthy defendants will often hire a highly experienced team of legal professionals.
