A Personal Injury Case - Your Right

March 2017

Both the United States Constitution and the Wisconsin Constitution provide for a jury trial for civil cases.  A civil case differs from a criminal case.  In a criminal case, the case is either brought by the United States or by the State in which the crime happened.  The authority to start a criminal case belongs to the executive branch of government.

On the other hand, a civil case is brought by an individual.  To know your right's with respect to starting a civil case, it is important to talk to a lawyer.  A lawyer can explain to you what your right's are and how to assert them in a court of law.  The procedure for starting and prosecuting a civil case is complicated.  A lawyer is trained in the law and its procedure and can help you assert your right's.

A common civil case is a personal injury case.  At Herrick & Hart, we have helped the injured obtain justice through the civil justice system for over 60 years.  We offer a free consultation on personal injury cases.  If you are not able to travel to Herrick & Hart, we can arrange a home visit.
