Civil litigation can be instigated when two or more individuals or corporations can’t agree on a legal matter. This could include disagreeing over the terms of a contract, or over who owns a piece of land. Civil litigation may also arise in the event of an accident, e.g. if an individual (the plaintiff) slips on a wet supermarket floor and breaks a bone they could sue the company (the defendant) for compensation.
Civil litigation procedures can be complicated with the legal jargon that describes the various stages of a law suit varying across Canada. However, in most areas, litigation follows the pattern of pleadings, discovery, and then trial.
