What Is a Commercial Litigation Case?
Commercial litigation cases are legal disputes between two parties that do not involve criminal charges, and in which one party is a business.
In commercial litigation cases, one party, the plaintiff, typically files a claim against the other party, the defendant, alleging some wrongdoing on their behalf. The parties then acquire attorneys and investigate the details of the case.
Depending on the case, the parties may decide to settle out of court, or rely on a judge or jury to decide the outcome of the dispute on their behalf in court.
What Are Common Types of Commercial Litigation Cases?
Common commercial litigation cases include:
Breach of Contract Disputes
Contractual disputes are one of the most common types of commercial litigation. For instance, if a party believes that another person or entity is failing to uphold the terms of a contract, they may pursue commercial litigation to either enforce the terms of the contract, change the terms of the contract, or render it null and void.
Class Action Lawsuits
In a class-action suit, a group of individuals jointly file a suit against an entity they believe engaged in wrongdoing. Class action suits make it easier for consumers to engage in legal battles with corporations or draw publicity to their legal action, in addition to having a number of other benefits and drawbacks.
Patent Litigation Disputes
Patents are the lifeblood of many companies, and often help entities distinguish themselves from their competition. As a result, copyright infringement, patent infringement, and trademark infringement disputes often play a vital role in the success of entities, helping them establish a hold on their niche.
Product Liability Disputes
If a product fails to work as advertised or causes harm to a consumer, the affected party may be able to file a product liability claim against the business responsible for selling or creating the product.
Personal Injury Claims
When an individual is harmed on the premises of a business and alleges the business was at fault for the injury, they can file a personal injury dispute against the business in question.
Certain industries, such as the medical and food industries, impose strict regulations on businesses that operate within them. If those regulations are ignored or violated, governing bodies or individuals can file regulatory disputes against the business in question.
