Boston Civil Litigation Attorneys

Personal injury lawyers helping resolve an array of civil disputes

Although personal injury encompasses a large area of civil law, not all such cases involve physical harm. An experienced Boston civil litigation attorney at Feinberg & Alban, P.C. can help you seek justice in virtually any type of dispute with other parties.

Understanding civil litigation

Trial law essentially falls into two categories:

  • Criminal law involves prosecution and defense based on allegations of criminal activities. Depending on the severity of their actions, convicted criminals can face penalties that include anything from community service to imprisonment, but victims receive no compensation from the criminals.
  • Civil law involves any dispute that requires outside resolution, such as when one party seeks some form of compensation from another party who causes losses to the plaintiff.

Although some civil cases go to trial for resolution by a judge or jury, an experienced Boston civil litigation lawyer often recommends negotiating an out-of-court settlement as a way to pursue fair compensation more quickly, with fewer legal costs and with less stress than a courtroom trial.

Examples of disputes involving civil litigation

Civil litigation represents a very broad area of the law. Although personal injury represents a large part of civil law, an experienced lawyer can help with a variety of disputes in Boston and throughout Massachusetts, including the following:

  • Contract disputes
  • Landlord / Tenant disagreements
  • Disputes between contractors and their customers

Civil litigation attorneys can help clients in Boston and surrounding areas pursue two types of remedies

Monetary compensation is not necessarily the best way to correct damages in a dispute. As explained by the Massachusetts Trial Court Law Libraries, the law provides for two types of remedies:

  • Legal remedies involve monetary compensation, which civil litigation lawyers might recommend when you suffer financial losses due to the acts of another party ─ for example, when a faulty new furnace causes damage to your home and your possessions. Even if you file a claim against your property insurance policy, you may have significant legal rights against the furnace manufacturer as well.
  • Equitable remedies involve finding ways to make things right, typically by requiring additional actions on the part of the defendant. For example, when garage builders install doors that fail to open and close properly, plaintiffs typically want the builders to fix the problem. If they refuse to perform the required repairs, homeowners can turn to civil litigation to resolve this type of dispute.

In many cases, the civil litigation lawyers at Feinberg & Alban, P.C. advise their clients in Boston to pursue a combination of legal and equitable remedies as appropriate for their claims.
