Posted by John A. Hixson | Sep 09, 2019 | 0 Comments

Laws are set up so that public safety is protected, and citizens are obligated to not jeopardize that safety. Sometimes, however, people are negligent, and their behavior results in harm to others. If this has happened to you, you have the right to file a civil lawsuit. By doing this, you may be able to get compensation for the damages that were done to you. A civil law attorney can help you to file this type of lawsuit in the state of Texas. The Hixson Law Firm of Texas and its professional legal staff are dedicated to giving you a voice. We will evaluate your case and determine whether you can obtain legal compensation.

How a Civil Lawsuit Works

Civil law is a different area of law than criminal law. You need not be working in the area of law enforcement to bring a civil lawsuit against someone.  Anyone may file a civil lawsuit if there has been negligence of some kind. The first step is to file a complaint with a court. Once that is done, the discovery process starts. During Discovery, the defendant, or person being sued, and the plaintiff, or person filing the suit, gather evidence to support their side. For example, if the lawsuit is regarding a personal injury caused by some defective product, the plaintiff will gather medical records of treatment for the injury. A legal professional from the Hixson Law Firm of Texas can plead your case in court and help you win compensation for damages caused to you by the defendant.
