When Does A Case Go To Civil Court?

Civil law allows people to seek damages for a wide range of noncriminal acts. A wide range of areas of the law, from property law to civil rights law may be handled through the civil court system, either at the state or federal level. The main difference between civil cases and criminal cases is that criminal cases involve acts that are considered to have caused harm to an entire community; civil cases, on the other hand, involve one person or private entity causing harm to another person or entity.
