HELPING TO UNDERSTAND A LAWSUIT
THERE ARE TWO PARTS TO EVERY LAWSUIT
Damages, means you must have been injured monetarily, physically, emotionally or sometimes the damage is someone is encroaching on your rights. Establishing and proving damages is a crucial part of any case because without damages you do not have a reason to sue someone.
The other and more important is element is liability. You have to prove that the person you want to sue is responsible for your injuries. For example, just because you fell at the supermarket does not mean the supermarket is at fault for your injury, maybe you tripped over your own shopping cart. Thus, the other party must have done something wrong or failed to do something right.
Civil lawsuits are not always about money. You can sue someone to have the Courts "declare" a fact. For example, you can have the Courts declare that your neighbor's fence is on your property.
