There are many different types of litigation, including:
Personal Injury Litigation: This type of litigation involves a claim for damages that arise from a physical or emotional injury. Personal injury cases can involve a wide range of accidents, including car accidents, medical malpractice, and product liability.
Contract Disputes: This type of litigation involves a dispute between two parties over the terms of a contract. Contract disputes can arise from issues such as breach of contract, misrepresentation, or non-performance.
Business Litigation: This type of litigation involves disputes between businesses, including issues such as breach of contract, intellectual property disputes, and shareholder disputes.
In Pennsylvania, there are a number of laws and regulations that govern litigation, including:
Statutes of Limitations: In Pennsylvania, there are time limits for filing a lawsuit. For example, a person must file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. If the statute of limitations has expired, the person may be unable to file a lawsuit.
Discovery: During the litigation process, both sides have the opportunity to request information and evidence from the other side. This process is called discovery, and it is governed by rules and regulations set forth by Pennsylvania law.
Pretrial Proceedings: Before a case goes to trial, there are a number of pretrial proceedings that may take place, including motions, depositions, and settlement negotiations.
