A civil claim is a legal dispute between two private parties (either individuals or businesses) typically involving a claim for monetary damages. To determine if your case is considered a civil claim, consider the following factors:

  1. Parties: Does the dispute involve two or more private parties, rather than a government entity or public official?

  2. Relief sought: Are you seeking monetary damages or another type of remedy from the defendant?

  3. Nature of the dispute: Is the dispute related to a contract, housing, personal injury, or another type of civil matter?

If your case meets these criteria, it is likely considered a civil claim!
