CIVIL LITIGATION AND HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE
When you sign a lease for an apartment, build a house, buy a car, or apply for a credit card, there can be legal consequences. Each time you sign a legal document with another party, you both are bound by certain civil laws. If the individual or corporation who has an obligation to you fails to keep their promise, you have the right to file a lawsuit against them for restitution.
Being involved in a lawsuit is not a simple process. If you file a lawsuit that is determined to be frivolous, it may be tossed out by the courts and you could end up liable for the legal fees and costs associated with the case. If you fail to timely defend yourself in a lawsuit, you could be held responsible for damages in addition to the legal fees and court costs of the other party.
