Civil Litigation

Civil litigation cases can arise from a myriad of disputes, including personal injury, contract breaches, employment matters, or even real estate conflicts. Civil litigation can be a challenging and contentious process, often involving disputes between individuals, businesses, or organizations seeking resolution through the legal system. Our team at Santarpia Law is committed to providing unwavering support, strategic guidance, and zealous advocacy to protect your rights and help you achieve the best possible outcome. 

Breach of Contract

A breach of contract occurs when one or more parties to a contract fail to fulfill the obligations outlined in a legally binding agreement. This breach can involve various scenarios, such as non-payment, failure to deliver goods or services, or violation of specific contractual terms.

To prove a valid breach of contract, the plaintiff must demonstrate the existence of a valid contract, performance or willingness to perform their obligations, the defendant’s failure to fulfill their contractual obligations, and resulting damages suffered by the plaintiff.

Common disputes include issues regarding payment for services rendered, disagreements about quality or quantity of goods or services, or unauthorized amendments of agreements. 

Personal Injury

Personal injury cases involve individuals who have suffered physical, emotional, or financial harm due to the negligence, intentional actions, or strict liability of another party. These cases seek to obtain compensation for the injured party’s losses and hold the responsible party accountable. Claims can arise out of car accidents, slip-and-falls, medical malpractice, product liability, workplace accidents, or injuries caused by defective products.

Plaintiffs must demonstrate that the defendant owed them a duty of care, breached that duty of care through their actions or omissions, and that this breach directly caused the plaintiffs injuries and resulting damages.

Employment Disputes

Employment disputes arise from conflicts between employers and employees, such as allegations of wrongful termination, discrimination, harassment, wage disputes, or violation of employment contracts. Litigation is often necessary to protect the rights and interests of both parties involved.

Employment disputes often involve more steps than typical cases, and may include filing complaints with an appropriate administrative agency, engaging in negotiation or mediation, or direct court litigation.

It is important to note that these are just a few examples of civil litigation practice, and that one singular event may involve multiple civil claims. In many civil litigation cases, defendants are under a strict time limit to respond to a summons and complaint, so time is of the essence.
