Everyday there are thousands of civil lawsuits filed in state and federal courts throughout the United States. Civil lawsuits are very different from criminal court cases. Criminal legal actions seek to impose criminal sanctions such as fines and jail sentences upon a defendant if he is found guilty. Civil cases are filed to get a defendant to compensate someone for a wrongful action by paying money or by performing a specific act. Civil cases can be very complicated to litigate. If you are being sued, don’t try to handle the case on your own. You need to immediately consult with a Georgia civil defense attorney.
The civil defense process begins after you have been served with a Summons and Complaint notice by the court. After this, you must file a Response by the date stated in the documents or the court will enter a default judgment against you. However, it is important to remember that there are legal defenses to every lawsuit. Many of these legal defenses must be raised in your first response or they are lost.
