Civil Litigation

Salt Lake County Civil Litigation Attorney

What Is the Role of a Civil Litigation Lawyer? 

Lawsuits are between two people or entities, whether public or private and do not involve the deciding of a criminal case, are determined under Utah law as civil litigation. When a person has been deprived of their rights in a manner that results in an injustice, Utah’s civil litigation laws serve as a means for awarding compensation to the wronged individual. If someone is guilty of having committed a crime, their sentencing and punishment do not derive from the civil litigation system, but rather, is a function of the criminal justice system. The scope of Utah’s civil litigation system is to provide victims with a means of receiving recompense for their suffering, usually in the form of money.
