Civil Litigation Lawyers in Carmel, IN

Carmel Trial Attorneys Serving Indianapolis & Central Indiana

Civil litigation is a legal process in which disputes between two or more parties are resolved in a court of law. Unlike criminal law, which deals with offenses against society or the state, civil litigation involves conflicts over contractual obligations or torts, where one party alleges harm caused by the other party. 

The primary objective of civil litigation is to resolve disputes and provide a remedy to the aggrieved party, which may involve compensation, enforcement or prevention of specific actions, or determining legal rights and obligations.

Many types of disputes can arise between parties, such as between private citizens, businesses and their customers, employees, suppliers, vendors, or other companies, or between individuals or businesses and governmental entities. Various methods short of a trial in civil court can be applied to resolve them. When these methods fail, the matter will proceed to the courtroom.

    What Legal Remedies Are Available in Civil Cases?

    The remedies you may potentially secure in a civil litigation dispute will depend on the nature of the case.

    Remedies can include:

    • Monetary damages: This is the most common remedy in civil litigation, where the losing party is ordered to compensate the winning party for losses and damages. For example, suppose a motorist injures a pedestrian due to a traffic law violation. In that case, the driver and/or his insurance company may be ordered to pay the injured pedestrian for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other damages.
    • Restitution: This remedy aims to restore the injured party to their situation before the damage occurred. An example might be the return of property unlawfully taken or reimbursement for expenses incurred due to the defendant's actions.
    • Specific performance: This requires the party who broke an agreement to fulfill the original contractual obligations. For instance, in a real estate contract, a seller who refuses to sell the house after signing the contract might be ordered to go through with the sale.
    • Injunction: This court order stops a party from doing something or compels them to do something. For instance, a business might be forbidden from using copyrighted material, or a person may be ordered to stop harassing behavior.
    • Declaratory judgment: A court determines the parties' rights under a contract or statute. For example, a court may make a declaratory judgment about the validity of a patent or the interpretation of a contract clause.
    • Equitable remedies: The court uses its discretion to achieve fairness. These may include rectification, cancellation, or reformation of a contract.
    • Punitive damages: These are awarded in addition to actual damages when the defendant's conduct was especially harmful or egregious. The aim is to punish the defendant and deter such behavior in the future. For instance, in a case of fraud or intentional harm, the court might award punitive damages to the injured party.
