Civil Litigation is best described as the process where two or more individuals or companies/organisations go to court to resolve a conflict. Civil Litigation arises when one party, known as the claimant claims to have been harmed by the actions of the other party, known as the defendant.
Civil cases are most commonly resolved by way of awarding damages, this is where the defendant will pay compensation to the claimant. Another action that the courts could endorse as a form of resolution would be an injunction, this could either prevent the defendant from undertaking an action or could require the defendant to conduct an action.
