People and businesses often have legal claims against each other. Sometimes those claims are for negligence, such as careless driving or medical malpractice, which leads to some type of injury or even death. Sometimes the claims are for breach of contract, such as where a customer fails to pay for goods or services. There are many other types of civil disputes, and if they cannot be resolved by negotiation or mediation, they must be decided by means of civil litigation in court.
