Civil litigation involves lawsuits regarding disputes between two parties
in which damages or specific actions are sought. These differ from criminal
suits in that crime is not necessarily involved (although some actions
may be subject to both criminal and civil proceedings). Civil suits often
make use of mediation, hearings and arbitrations, and out-of-court settlements,
but can also include courtroom trials. If you are facing a civil litigation
issue, contact a
Olathe civil litigation lawyer for help understanding your legal options and for advice on the best course
of legal action. Some areas of potential civil litigation include:
Real Estate Law
Litigation involving real estate or property requires legal representation
with experience and training in the area. Cases include landlord tenant
disputes, contract disputes and construction defects.
Landlord Tenant Disputes
Legal disputes between landlords and tenants can include breaches of contract,
property damage, delinquent payments and more. State laws for such disputes
are found in K.S.A. Ch. 58 Article 25.
As a business owner, it is vital that you retain a skilled attorney to
fight for your case, whether it is an employment dispute, contract dispute,
partnership dispute, or deceptive trade practice case.
Breach of Contract
Breaches of contract can be intentional, or they could be the result of
a misunderstanding or contract dispute. Speak with a lawyer to determine
what steps you could take to resolve the issue.
Contracts are legal documents meant to hold to parties to an agreement.
Disagreement on the drafting of the contract, or on the interpretation
of its terms, could be resolved in court.
Much like business litigation, commercial litigation covers legal suits
and disputes that affect companies, such as breaches of contracts and
employment disputes. These cases must be handled carefully and with aggression.
As an employer or an employee, be sure to retain an experienced lawyer
to represent you in a dispute over
employment discrimination, wages, benefits, workers' comp, and any other area of employment.
Deceptive Trade Practices
K.S.A. § 50-626 seeks to prevent suppliers from deceiving consumers
into unfair transactions. Examples include claims of sponsorship or affiliation
that the supplier does not have, and offering property or services without
intent to sell them.
One of the most difficult situations a business or corporation could experience
is a dispute over the responsibilities and roles of the partners. This
could jeopardize the future of the company, so retain a competent attorney today.
Have you been injured in an accident? You deserve to fight for compensation
in court. Your success hinges on the capability of your attorney, however,
so consult with a personal injury lawyer to learn more.
If you need to go up against the big insurance companies in court, you
can be sure they will have excellent representation. Get the compensation
you need by fighting back with an aggressive lawyer.
Falsifying information in order to obtain a loan or larger loan that would
have been granted otherwise is a form of fraud and is harshly punished
under Kansas state law.
Mistakes and oversights in construction could cause a great deal of harm
in the future. If you have suffered due to a construction defect, you
may be able to file a lawsuit.
Even lawyers, judges and juries can be taken to court. If your representative
is failing to communicate or return your calls, is not conducting adequate
research, or has wrongfully dropped your case, you could file a suit against them.
An action to quiet title establishes your ownership of property and prevents
anyone from disputing said ownership. This prevents any further legal
arguments regarding your property.
Quiet Title for Aircraft
For aircrafts, quieting title removes all liens on the vessel so that
you need not worry about disputes or legal issues in the future. This
must be handled in court, so consult with an attorney right away.
Quiet Title Statute
The statute for quieting title is found in K.S.A. § 60-1002, which
outlines rights of action, and actions to bar lien claims.
