  • What Is Civil Litigation?

    Civil litigation encompasses a wide variety of legal proceedings that are not criminal and applies to any legal dispute where two or more parties are typically seeking monetary damages but may be asking for some other remedy that doesn’t involve monetary damages. Rather than being tried in a criminal court, these cases are argued as lawsuits in civil courts and may go to trial for a judge or jury to determine the outcome. Only specific, limited types of civil cases aren’t entitled to a jury trial, most of which are administrative actions.

  • How Long Do I Have To File My Civil Litigation Claim?

    While there is no definitive timeframe for filing a civil litigation claim, and each case depends on the nature of the claim and the local statute of limitations, some claims can expire as soon as two years following a triggering event in Kansas. This is why it’s important to contact a Wichita civil litigation attorney as soon as you consider filing a lawsuit. Not only can an experienced attorney help you navigate the statute of limitations and prepare your case, but they can provide you consistent support throughout the process.

  • What Are the Most Common Types of Civil Cases?

    Some of the most common cases to appear in civil court include personal injury claims, contract disputes, driver’s license suspension appeals, medical malpractice, and property disputes. At the McConnell Law Firm, our team has years of experience helping clients resolve civil cases in various litigation areas and can help you receive fair compensation for your suffering.

  • What Is Arbitration and Mediation?

    Arbitration and mediation are considered alternative dispute resolution forms, often used to resolve cases without a formal trial. In general, arbitration is more formal than mediation, as both parties are allowed an opportunity to argue their side in front of an arbitrator. During this time, a civil litigation attorney may question witnesses and discuss relevant evidence before the arbitrator provides a ruling that both parties are legally obligated to honor. Through mediation, a neutral third party acts as a negotiator, agreeing to objectively listen to both sides of the dispute while helping reach a mutually beneficial agreement.

  • When Should I Contact a Civil Litigation Attorney?

    If you’re considering filing a lawsuit or are curious if you have a case, it’s best to consult with a civil litigation attorney as soon as possible. When you partner with a trusted and experienced attorney, they can help guide you through the necessary paperwork, steps, and procedures and understand which cases have the best chance of success. Because some cases are better handled through alternative dispute resolution, such as arbitration or mediation, your Wichita civil litigation attorney will be able to provide you with a comprehensive explanation of your options.
