General litigation, as opposed to personal injury litigation, serves to resolve disputes. Typically, the resolution involves some sort of monetary compensation. The general litigation solicitors at Crompton Halliwell can consult with you on the facts of your dispute and advise you on the best course of action.
Ultimately, general litigation can encompass any number of disputes between two or more individuals, companies or between an individual and a company. A few of the most common categories these disputes fall into include:
- Commercial disputes
- Debt recovery
- Inheritance disputes
- Insurance disputes
- Construction defects
- Contractor services disputes
If you have entered into an agreement with another individual for money, and the agreement was broken or not adhered to in some way, there are laws established to help you towards monetary recovery.
Small Claims Procedure
Individuals should consider the option of a Small Claims Procedure. A general litigation claim has to have a value in excess of £5000. Anything less will be handled through the Small Claims Procedure. Please schedule a consultation with our office for further advice.
